Summary of benefits (SB) documents explain your benefits. They are a summary of the health benefits covered under your plan. They offer specific information about the share of costs between you and Sharp Health Plan such as copays and deductibles.
If you are covered under a Covered California™ plan, you must receive a summary of benefits and coverage (SBC) document. It is similar to an SB document. An SBC is also a summary, but includes more information about out-of-network costs, limitations and exceptions. Only Covered California members are required to receive an SBC document.

You can find your summary of benefits (SB) or summary of benefits and coverage (SBC) documents in several ways:

Summaries of benefits (SB) and summaries of benefits and coverage (SBC) include the name of your health plan, the name of your network, and drug information. This information is helpful when checking to see if a doctor or provider is in your network or which prescription drugs your plan covers.
