Insurance Terminology for Nazareth Inhabitants
The deductible is important but not always the most important part of the insurance puzzle. This is the amount that you have to pay before the insurance takes over: the lower the deductible the higher the monthly premium and the higher the deductible the lower the premium. If you have major accident, major illness, hospitalization, the deductible is usually reached quickly.
This is the percentage of medical costs you pay after the deductible is met. For example, insurance may cover 80% of the costs and you would have to pay 20%. The out of pocket expense will usually have a cap or maximum amount after which the insurance covers 100% of your medical costs. Also, insurance companies negotiate prices with medical providers for lower rates than you would otherwise pay.
A copayment is the amount you pay each time you visit your doctor or provider. Often the copayment is lower if you stay within a certain network or geographic area. Copayments may be higher if you need to see a specialist. Compared to the total cost of health insurance, copayments are not a big concern.
Many insurance plans have eliminated prescription coverage or only offer it as additional insurance at an additional cost. If you regularly use prescription drugs, especially less common ones, then this coverage may be important to you. Prescription drug insurance differentiates between generic and name brand drugs, often with limits and higher copays for name brands.
Maximum Out of Pocket Cost
This is an important and often worrying question for many people. We help you to understand what the total cost would be for you if you were to use insurance to its limits. We want to make sure that you are comfortable with and knowledgeable about what your plan actually covers and how much of the costs you may have to bear.
We work to make monthly premiums affordable and can often change the monthly payment amount substantially by altering other parts of the Health Insurance equation.
Supplemental plans can be used to fill in gaps in insurance coverage. For example, Dental and Vision plans are supplemental. Critical care and Hospitalization are other options to cover costs of a critical illness or a hospital visit that are not covered by other insurance. Income Protection can also be written into a plan in the event an illness left you unable to work for an extended period of time.
