Understanding In-Network and Out-of-Network Benefits

Using in-network providers is key to receiving the highest level of healthcare benefits. Services from a provider other than an in-network one are considered out-of-network, except for emergency or urgent care away from home.

An exclusive provider plan, such as IU Health HDHP, does not cover out-of-network services other than emergency care and urgent care when away from home, certain children living outside Indiana, and services authorized by the plan in advance.
