Standard Insurance Terms:
Deductible is a specified amount of money that the insured must pay before an insurance company will pay a claim. Each family member usually has a separate deductible.
Co Payments are flat fees charged each time you visit the doctor or use any medical service, regardless of the cost of the procedure.
Coinsurance requires you to pay a percentage of the total cost of the care. Many plans require either co insurance or co pay but some charge both.
Maximum out of pocket expense is the most you’ll have to spend before all of your medical bills are covered.
