As our commitment to your health continues, we have developed the Member Handbook to assist you and those who care about you in understanding your Peoples Health plan benefits and options.
There is plenty of useful information in the Member Handbook, including:
- More information about your health plan benefits and how to access them
- Details on certain situations that you may encounter as a member and how you can work with your health plan
- Information on different check-ups, tests and shots that are important to maintaining healthy living for people age 50 and over
- Business matters information, including details on your rights and responsibilities as a plan member and information about advance directives and how they can help you and your family
All of this, and more, is included in the Member Handbook, which is a supplement to your plan’s Evidence of Coverage. Below, you can either view this document in your Internet browser, or download it to your computer to browse at your convenience.
