Understanding Your Health Insurance
Allowed Amount – The maximum amount on which payment is based for covered health services
Co-insurance – Your share of the costs of a covered heath service, calculated as a percent of the allowed amount for the service. You pay co-insurance plus any deductibles you owe.
Co-payment – A fixed amount you pay for a covered health care service, usually paid at the time when you receive the service. The amount can vary by the type of covered health service.
Deductible – The amount you owe for health care services your health insurance plan covers before your health insurance plan begins to pay. The deductible may not apply to all services.
Out-of-Pocket Limit – The most you pay during a policy period (usually a year) before your health insurance plan begins to pay 100% of the allowed amount. This limit never includes your premium or health care services that your plan doesn’t cover. Some health insurance plans don’t count all of your co-payments, deductibles, co-insurance payments, out-of-network payments or other expenses toward this limit.
