Health insurance: How coordination of benefits works

12.29.2355 hours ago

1. COB creates a framework for the two insurance companies to coordinate benefits so they pay their fair share when both plans pay. COB decides which is the primary insurance plan and which one is secondary insurance. You can think of the secondary payer as supplemental coverage to help you pay for out-of-pocket costs. The primary insurance pays first its share of the health care costs. Then, the secondary insurance plan will pay up to 100% of the total cost of health care, as long as it's covered under the plans. The plans won't pay more than 100% of the health care cost, so you're not going to get double the benefits if you have multiple health insurance plans.

What Is the Health Insurance Birthday Rule?

12.29.2359 hours ago

1. Most people tend to have just one health insurance policy. But it’s possible to have more than one, especially if a household has two parents whose jobs both offer employer-sponsored health coverage. Although there’s usually an option to put the whole family on one policy, that’s not always the best solution. It’s not always possible, as some employers don’t offer coverage to spouses, particularly if they have an offer of coverage from their own employer.1 When each parent has their own health plan, they both have the option of adding their children to their plan. Many families choose to add children to just one parent’s plan, but some choose to add them to both plans, especially if the employers cover a significant portion of the monthly premiums. This double coverage approach can be a money-saver, as the second plan can be used to cover expenses that would otherwise be out-of-pocket costs under the first plan.
