DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR INSURANCE COST SHARE IS?
DO YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR INSURANCE OUT-OF-POCKET COSTS ARE?
The amount you must pay for covered healthcare services before your health insurance kicks in.
Example: If Luke’s deductible is $2,000 his insurance won’t pay for anything until he has paid $2,000 for covered health care costs. If he requires hospitalization that costs $3,000, he would pay the $2,000 deductible, and the plan would pay for a portion of the remaining $1,000 (based on Luke’s plan specifics).
The percentage of the bill you pay for a covered product or service.
Example: Let’s sayTony visits his in-network doctor when he’s ill. He has already met his deductible, and his plan now requires a 20 percent coinsurance The cost of his insurance plan’s contracted rate is $150, he owes $30. His insurance company will pay the rest.
Set dollar amount you pay for a covered product or service.
Example: Sara has a $20 copay for visits with her primary care physician (PCP) and a $40 copay for urgent care visits. What does that mean? She will pay $20 for every doctor visit and $40 every time she goes to urgent care.
Most insurance plans require patient OUT-OF-POCKET costs for deductible, coinsurance and/or copayment.
Patients will be billed for all OUT-OF-POCKET costs after your insurance company has processed your claim.
Your insurance plan is a contract between you and your insurance company. If you want to know your coverage, please contact your insurance company.
