Health insurance coverage: What are 'Covered' Services?
Health insurance coverage is a contract used to determine medical benefits that are covered, or not covered, between you and your insurance provider. The insurance company, based on a fee that you provide them on a regular basis, promises to pay health insurance coverage on certain items or benefits listed in that contract. These are called 'covered' services. 'Covered' services can include a wide variety of things, such as implements, prescriptions, services (such as massage), checkups, tests and/or research.
