Most Americans who have health insurance through their employer (and many who are self-insured) are enrolled in some type of a managed care plan. The type of managed care plan you have may determine how you access and receive health care for you and your family, and what you will have to pay out of pocket each time you receive care.
What Managed Care Plans Cover
Managed care plans typically cover a wide range of health services such as preventive care and immunizations for adults and children, general checkups, diagnosis and treatment of illness (including necessary tests, doctors’ visits, prescription medications, and hospital care), and complete prenatal (pregnancy) and newborn care.
