Insurance Terms : 

Insurance Terms Co-Pay – The dollar amount a managed care patient pays when services are received. Co-Insurance - The portion of covered expenses that must be paid by the policyholder in addition to the deductible. Deductible - The amount a person must pay before the insurance company begins to pay its portion of claims.

Insurance Terms : 

Insurance Terms Out-of-Pocket Maximum - A limit on all of the insured's out-of-pocket expenses (deductibles and coinsurance) for treatment of illness or injury. When the maximum is reached, the insurance company will begin covering 100 percent of eligible charges. Health Maintenance Organization (HMO) - HMOs require you to select a primary care physician, generally a family practitioner or pediatrician, who is part of their network. A referral from your primary care physician is required to see a specialist (other than an OB/GYN)

Insurance Terms : 

Insurance Terms HMO (Open Access)- HMO OA’s require you to select a primary care physician, however you are not required to get a referral to go to other Doctors in the Network. Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) - The enrollees may go outside the network, but would incur larger costs in the form of higher deductibles and coinsurance rates, or non-discounted charges. Point-Of-Service (POS) plan – HMO/PPO hybrid; sometimes referred to as an "open-ended" HMO. POS plans resemble HMOs for in-network services. Services received outside of the network are usually provider reimbursement based on a fee schedule or usual, customary and reasonable charges.
