Health Insurance Literacy 101

This session will define common health insurance terms and go through a couple of real-life plan and cost comparisons. Attendees will also learn about in-network vs out-of-network, use of ER services, emergency exceptions, and why it is so hard for your healthcare provider to give you a cost estimate. Participants will leave the session with a better understanding of health insurance and how to choose the best plan.


Objective 1: Students, faculty, and staff will be able to define common health insurance terms such as copay, deductible, etc.

Objective 2: Students, faculty, and staff will be able to perform an accurate cost comparison of health plans to select the best coverage for them and their families.
