Uniform Glossary

The Uniform Glossary includes many commonly used definitions of health coverage and medical terminology, but isn’t a full list. These glossary terms and definitions are intended to be educational and may be different from the terms and definitions for a plan. Some of these terms also might not have exactly the same meaning when used in a policy or plan, and in any such case, the policy or plan governs. The glossary may not be modified by plans or issuers and is to be provided in connection with the SBC.
