March 9, 2016

Approximately 25 percent of Texans say they lack confidence in understanding some of the most basic terminology about health insurance plans, according to a new report released by Episcopal Health Foundation (EHF) and the Baker Institute for Public Policy at Rice University. The report found uninsured, low-income and Hispanic Texans were least likely to understand health-plan terms like “premium,” “co-payment” and “provider network.”
