Health Care Costs and Benefits


A flat dollar amount the member must pay before certain benefits can be paid.

  • Plans typically have an individual and a family deductible. Amounts applied to individual deductibles count toward the family deductible. Once the family deductible is met, the deductible is considered satisfied regardless of whether each family member has met it individually
  • Non-covered expenses are not applied toward the deductible1

Co-payment (co-pay)

A flat dollar amount per service, or prescription drug based on its formulary tier.

  • Typically, co-pays are not applied toward deductibles1


The percentage of covered expenses the member must pay after the deductible is met.

  • For example, the member pays 20% after the plan pays 80%
  • Co-insurance is applied toward out-of-pocket maximums, but typically not to deductibles2

Out-of-pocket maximum

The maximum amount of co-insurance the insured must pay in a calendar year per family or individual.

  • Usually, deductibles and co-pays do not apply toward out-of-pocket maximums
  • Non-covered services and items, such as over-the-counter medicines, are not applied toward deductibles and plan maximums1

In-network vs out-of-network care

PPOs, HMOs, and other managed care plans have contracts with groups of providers and pharmacies. By using in-network providers, patients will receive better coverage. Under health maintenance organizations, services of out-of-network or non-preferred providers are generally not covered.1
