Benefits and coverage by plan

What is a certificate of coverage (COC)?

The certificates of coverage (COCs), also called benefits booklets, are produced by the health plans to provide detailed information about plan benefits and what is and is not covered.

What is a summary of benefits and coverage (SBC)?

Summaries of Benefits and Coverage (SBCs) are required under the federal Affordable Care Act to help members understand plan benefits and medical terms.

SBCs help you compare things like:

  • Whether there are services a plan doesn't cover
  • What isn't included in a plan's out-of-pocket limit
  • Whether you need a referral to see a specialist

The SEBB Program and/or medical plans provide SBCs, or notice of how to get one, at different times throughout the year (like when you apply for coverage, renew your plan, or request an SBC). SBCs are available (upon request) in English, Spanish, Tagalog, Chinese, and Navajo.

SBC's don't replace medical benefits comparisons or the plans' certificates of coverage.
