Coinsurance – The percentage of a medical bill you share with your insurance company after you’ve paid your deductible. For example, if you have a $100 doctor’s bill and your plan covers 80 percent, the coinsurance amount you owe to the doctor’s office is 20 percent, or $20.
Copay (or copayment) – The amount you pay a healthcare provider at the time you receive services. For instance, you may have to pay a copayment for each covered visit to your doctor. Not all plans require a copayment.
Deductible – The amount you pay before the health plan benefits are provided. Once the deductible is met, covered services will begin to be paid.
Maximum Out Of Pocket (MOOP) – The maximum dollar amount you would pay in a year including deductibles, copays and coinsurance. It does not include your monthly premium. Once the MOOP is met, covered services will pay at 100 percent.
Metal Level – The government defined four metal levels to describe the amount of coverage a plan offers – platinum, gold, silver and bronze. The levels can help people understand what their potential out-of-pocket costs may be.
Premium – The amount you pay each month for your health insurance plan.
