Health Insurance Terms
telemedicine - A secure, online consultation with a healthcare professional.
tiered network plan - A tiered network plan divides a provider network into groups called “tiers,” based on cost, and in many cases, quality measures. You can visit doctors and hospitals from any of the tiers, but you’ll save the most on your out-of-pocket costs if you stay within a particular tier. For example, Tier 1 may offer the lowest out-of-pockets costs, Tier 2 may be a bit higher, and Tier 3 may have the highest out-of-pocket costs. These tiers give you an option to save when you choose to see certain health care providers that offer more cost-effective care.
travel insurance - A type of insurance to help offset the cost of medical care when travelling or living abroad. Get more information on travel insurance.
