    Subscriber is normally used to describe someone covered under an HMO plan although the term has broad use and application.

    In a generic sense, a health insurance subscriber may also be called a policyholder, certificate holder, insured or covered participant.

    Terms can be confusing but the use of subscriber is often a legal definition used when a policy is not issued to the individual.
