Definition - What does Schedule of Benefits (SOB) mean?

A schedule of benefits is a list of the various services covered under a health insurance plan, along with the associated fees. Policyholders receive these schedules so that they know which services and treatments are covered and which are not. Some treatments and services may require a co-pay.
