What is a Network?

It’s a group of providers and facilities Bright Health has partnered with to offer affordable, quality care.

Here are some things to think about as you are making a plan choice:

Have a doctor you love and trust?

Before you choose a plan, check to see if they are in-network. If they are not, are you willing to see someone different?

Are you interested in Telehealth?

Online visits can be a great option for non-serious illnesses and injuries.

Why does the network matter?
In a word, cost. Their plans cover charges from in-network providers only, except in emergencies and other rare, pre-approved situations. Because of this, you may end up paying the entire cost for services you receive outside the network.

About Bright Health

Bright Health was started by former UHC executives who believed health insurance could better. They offer a wide variety of plans and will be in Illinois for the long haul, so don’t worry about their newer status–they’ve only grown over the years.
