Life happens. One minute you’re making dinner and the next you slice your finger. Luckily, your health care coverage puts you in control of your health care and costs.
You have choices when it comes to choosing care. Just because your finger is hurt doesn’t mean you need to go to the emergency room (ER). And in some cases, if you do go to the ER, your visit isn’t covered. This means you could end up paying part or all of the bill.
Knowing what is — and isn’t — an emergency can help you plan for the unexpected.
