To make informed benefits decisions for you and your family, read all materials provided and get an understanding of options available. Questions that should be considered: Are you experiencing any problems with your current health plan? Do you feel you are spending too much money for either your health plan or at the doctor's office? Do you want to have more freedom of choice without having to go through a referral process? Is your dental option working for you? Do you want the freedom to choose any dentist or does a DHMO assigned dental office work for you?
