Understanding Health Insurance
Insurance requires you to meet your deductible before they begin paying a portion for services. If you have not met your deductible, you will pay the set fee for services until the deductible is met. Once met, you will be responsible for the copay or coinsurance required by your insurance company.
Your deductible is the amount of money you pay out-of-pocket for covered health care services before your insurance company pays anything.
After you pay your annual deductible, your insurance starts paying its portion of the cost of covered care you receive for the rest of the year. Depending on the service, the health care provider, and your insurance, your portion of the cost of care covered by the plan after you’ve met your deductible may be a copayment or coinsurance amount.
A copayment, or copay, is a fixed amount of money you pay for a covered health care service. The amount can vary by the type of service. Your health insurance plan determines what your copayment is for different types of healthcare services, which you typically pay at the time you receive the service.
Coinsurance is the share of the cost of a covered health care service that you pay after you’ve reached your deductible. It’s usually a percentage of the approved medical expense. Once you have met your deductible, you might pay 20% of the cost of the health service or procedure, for instance. Your insurance company would pay the balance.
