Common Questions and Answers
What is a deductible?
A deductible is the amount of money you must pay before the insurance company begins covering part or all of your medical expenses.
What is co-insurance?
Co-insurance is a set percentage of the insured medical expenses that you may have to pay after you reach your deductible. Co-insurance can vary greatly among insurance plans, so check with your provider to find out how much co-insurance you may have to pay.
What is a co-payment?
A co-payment is a set payment made at the time a service is received. Co-payments can vary greatly among insurance plans, so check with your provider to find out how much you may have to pay. We ask that you pay your co-payment when you register.
What is an out-of-pocket maximum/limit?
An out-of-pocket maximum/limit is the most you have to pay for covered services in a plan year. After you spend this amount on deductibles and coinsurance, your health insurance typically pays 100% of the costs of covered benefits. Depending on your health insurance plan, you may still be responsible for co-pays.
What is does out-of-network mean?
