HSHS St. Anthony’s Memorial Hospital is making it their mission to provide patients with easily accessible, quality care that is affordable. To do this, St Anthony’s works with many insurances to ensure coverage for the quality care that patients receive.
As November 1st through January 31st is the open enrollment period under the Affordable Care Act, St Anthony’s is providing tips for individuals to use when choosing their health care coverage. St Anthony’s is reminding everyone that as they compare plans, ensure that you view the network covered under each health care plan. Some doctors and hospitals may be covered under one plan but not under another. It is also important to view which primary care doctors and specialists are available and where they may be located. Even though an individual may be healthy when selecting coverage, the need for a specialist could arise at any moment. A list of the health care plans accepted by HSHS St Anthony’s Memorial Hospital can be found www.stanthonyshospital.org.
