( Insurance : Life insurance )
The health insurance plan entitles members to services of participating physicians, hospitals, and clinics.
Medical care is provided to members of the health-care plan through a network of participating health-care providers.
A participating health care provider is a doctor or hospital that has been approved by an insurer,
so that if a policyholder uses their medical services, they will receive a discount.
