Decoding Your Coverage:
Deductibles are paid out of pocket each year before insurance kicks in. 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 expenseis the most you’ll have to spend before all of your medical bills are covered.
