The Summary of Benefits and Coverage is a simple and standardized four-page comparison tool that is intended to help consumers better understand and compare available health insurance options. There are four main sections:
Some terms in the Summary of Benefits and Coverage appear in bold and are underlined. These terms are defined in the Uniform Glossary, a companion document to the SBC. These definitions are intended to improve consumer understanding of common terms and do not necessarily reflect the plan’s definition of the same term.
