Deductibles: Deductibles are an undetermined amount you have to pay before the insurance company contributes to your medical expenses. It could be $500, $1,000 or more than $6,000 in value.
A total deductible might apply to some plans. You might have to pay the total cost of your doctor appointments or medical treatments until your deductible is satisfied. Following that, the health insurance plan begins covering its portion of the expenses. Based on your policy the care you receive will then be paid for with copays, coinsurance or both.
For other plans, various discounts may be available to certain forms of healthcare. The plan might provide healthcare faster when you visit doctors in network. When the plan first begins to pay for out-of-network healthcare, you might be required to pay higher. There could be separate deductibles for both medical and medical services.
