Health Insurance Basic Terms
A few terms to consider before you decide your medical insurance coverage for you and/or family for the year.
►Deductible: The amount of money that you may need to pay out-of-pocket for health care services before your health insurance plan begins to help with payments. For example, if your deductible is $100, your plan won’t pay for anything until you’ve paid the $100 deductible.
► Co-insurance: Your share of the health care service cost once you’ve met your deductible. Common share for health care services are 80/20, 70/30, 60/40. An 80/20 means the carrier will pay 80% and you 20% of the health care service cost. For example, if your bill is $1,000, and your co-insurance is 20%, you will pay $200 for your medical services if you have already met your deductible.
► Out-of-pocket maximum: The most you’ll pay in a policy period (usually one year), before your plan starts to pay 100% of the covered Essential Health Benefits you receive. This limit must include Deductibles, Coinsurance, and Co-payments, but does not typically count Premiums, toward your out of pocket maximum.
