Enrolling in and using health insurance can be confusing, even when you know that you have great coverage and providers. The acronyms alone can throw you for a loop. We can simplify the process, though, by showing you how to navigate your coverage. You can easily find providers and discover even more ways that you can save money by using your CDPHP health insurance. For example, some policies will cover gym memberships, visits to nutritionists, or other wellness and lifestyle benefits.
