STUDY UP. IT’LL PAY OFF LATER. Learning these key terms will help you better understand your health plan choices so you can choose the coverage that’s best for you. Deductible This is the amount you pay before your health plan starts to pay for certain medical bills. It resets January 1st. Out-of-pocket maximum This protects you against large medical expenses by capping the total amount you could pay in a plan year. (Please note: This amount is different depending on whether you see in-network or out-of-network providers, and copayments do not apply to the out-of-pocket maximum.) Coinsurance This is a percentage of the total medical bill that you have to pay. For example, some plans have a 20 percent coinsurance charge for physical therapy. So if the total bill is $100, the coinsurance would be $20. Copayment This is a fixed amount (not a percentage) charged each time you receive a healthcare service. For example, your plan may have a copayment for doctor visits or prescription drugs. 2
