With open enrollment season well underway, health literacy – or understanding basic health information – is important for choosing your health plan.
At PA Health & Wellness, we believe health literacy is key to thriving. Here are some important terms to know for open enrollment season:
• Health Insurance Navigator – Expert assistance for those looking to choose a Medicare or Medicaid provider, at no charge.
• Benefit period – Payment period that begins the day you’re admitted as a patient and ends after not receiving inpatient care for a continuous 60 days.
• Long-term care – Services providing medical and non-medical care to those unable to care for themselves.
