Understand Your Insurance and Rights

Health insurance can be a very complex system to navigate. Understanding how your health insurance and plan work can take a great deal of time and knowledge. That’s why CHA is here to answer your questions about your insurance and help you understand your coverage and rights, as well as what protections are in place to make sure you have access to medical care. 

For more in depth information, please see the CHA Publications.

For assistance, call Community Health Advocates at 888-614-5400.

 

Access Medical Services

Once you have health insurance, whether public or commercial, it is very important to know your rights and responsibilities when enrolled in a plan.

Not understanding how to use health insurance and managed care results in underutilization of medical services.  This can lead to untreated health conditions, medical debt, and gaps in insurance coverage.

CHA can help you access medical services through your health insurance, such as:

  • Getting Prior Authorization/Referral
  • Selecting/Changing Your PCP Provider
  • Requesting an Out-of-Network Provider
  • Finding help with Transportation
  • Requesting a new Benefits card
