Prior to being diagnosed with a chronic illness I always knew the importance of having health insurance and I have always made sure that I was covered. After my diagnosis, it became apparent that I not only need to be insured I needed to understand my benefits. I needed to know all the terminology associated with choosing a provider. If you never had to experience the difference between a PPO and HMO would understand how each one works?
