Key Terms in Health Insurance


Amount you pay for coverage on a monthly basis


Amount you must pay out of pocket before insurance will cover non-essential benefits


Fixed fee you pay when you receive service at a Dr. or pharmacy. Insurance company will then review your care and see if you owe more, in which case they’ll send you a bill.


This is like a copay, but when you pay a percent of the cost, rather than a flat fee.
