Do you know the difference between these three billing terms? Often times insurances are confusing! Do you know the difference between a copayment, coinsurance, and a deductible?  Here is a quick breakdown to better help you under stand your insurance explanation of benefits statements (EOB’s).
  • Deductible
    • A set amount for your individual insurance plan that you pay for healthcare services before your insurance begins paying.
  • Coinsurance
    • Coinsurance is your share of the costs of a health care service. It’s usually figured as a percentage of the total charge for the service. The amount will vary depending on the services rendered.
  • Copayment
    • A copay is a fixed amount you pay for a health care service when services are rendered.
Hopefully this has helped you to better understand the insurance language!
