Your plan may determine what your copay is for the different types of services, and when it applies. You may have a copay before you finish paying toward our deductible. You may also have a copay after you have paid your deductible and when you have coinsurance. “You may be subject to deductible.” A deductible is a specific amount of money that a patient must pay before the insurance company will pay on the claim. Example: If your plans deductible is $1500.00, you’ll pay 100% of eligible healthcare expenses until the bills total $1500.00 “You may have coinsurance” A coinsurance is a portion in which the patient pays a share of the payment made against the claim. Note: In most cases, the deductible has been met by this point. However, some patients can have both the deductible and coinsurance. Example: You’ve paid $1500.00 in health care expenses and met your deductible. When you go to the doctor, instead of paying the entire cost yourself, you and your plan share the cost. If your plan pays 70%, then you would be responsible for paying the remaining 30%.
