Are you confused about health Insurance? Particularly now with the changes in health care law many Americans are having to learn new policies and services. The health insurance landscape is changing and very complex.

Health Insurance 101 is being offered through UT Extension to explore the basics of Health Insurance. Health insurance is really a contract between you and an insurance company designed to protect or assist you with health care expenses. Therefore, it is important to understand the basic terminology of health insurance, as well as what can be done to prevent fraud or loss of money.
