What is Co-Insurance or Co-Payment?
A co-insurance is a percentage your insurance requires you to pay toward the total charge. For example: you may have an 80/20 plan; this means insurance will pay 80% and the patient will pay 20% of the allowed amount for the visit. This is usually after the deductible is met.
A co-payment is the amount your insurance requires you to pay prior to your office visit. This is usually a set amount depending on the type of physician you see—primary care physician (PCP) or specialist.
