Healthcare reform just doesn’t just mean you have to be insured. It also mandates some of the things insurance must cover.

There are ten essential benefits that must be in almost every plan:

  • Ambulatory patient services, like office visits and out-patient hospital care
  • Emergency care
  • Hospital stays
  • Maternity care
  • Substance abuse treatment and mental health services
  • Prescription drug coverage
  • Rehab services to help people recover from injuries or disabilities
  • Lab services
  • Wellness services like routine checkups and immunications
  • Oral and vision care services, but only for children
