A co-payment is a set fee the member pays to providers at the time services are rendered. Co-pays are applied to emergency room visits, hospital admissions, office visits, etc. The costs are usually minimal. The patient should be aware of the co-payment amounts prior to the date of service. See more about common billing terms.
Deductibles are provisions that require the member to accumulate a specific amount of medical bills before benefits are paid. For example, if a member's policy contains a $500 deductible, the member must accumulate and pay $500 out of pocket before the insurance carrier will pay benefits. Once the patient has met their deductible, the carrier usually pays a percentage of the bill. The patient is liable for the unpaid percentage. Deductibles are yearly, usually starting in January. See more about common billing terms.
Co-insurance is a form of cost-sharing. After your deductible has been met, the plan will begin paying a percentage of your bills. The remaining amount, known as co-insurance, is the portion due by the patient. See more about common billing terms.
