Individual & Family: Understand Your Plan

Understanding Your Plan

No matter what kind of health care you need, it is important to check what your plan covers. Your benefits differ depending on the type of plan you have. A referral or prior authorization may be needed before some services will be covered by your plan. Your Quartz ID card will state what kind of plan you have. Be sure to check coverage before getting medical care other than from your PCP.
