Health Insurance Terms
generic drugs - Generic drugs have the same active ingredients as their brand-name drug counterparts. They usually cost less than brand-name drugs and are considered by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to be as safe and effective as brand-name drugs. For individuals who must take several medications regularly, generic drugs offer the advantage of being an affordable alternative to brand-name drugs.
group health insurance - Health insurance you receive through your employer. Typically, your employer shares some of the costs with you.
