COPAY Usually after you meet your deductible in each insurance year, you may have a copay or a coinsurance. A copay is a fixed amount you will pay each session, like $15 or $30. Insurance will cover the rest of our contracted rate. Copays can vary depending on the kind of service you’re receiving. For example, you may have to pay a $30 copay for each visit to a primary care practitioner and $60 for each visit to a specialist. Chiropractic falls in both categories depending on your specific plan. Normally you aren’t able to use the copayments to reach the threshold for your deductible. It depends on your plan, so it’s always best to ready any fine print to learn more about how your coverage works.
COINSURANCE A coinsurance is a percentage you pay for each session, like 20% or 30% of the contracted rate. For example, if our contract rate with your insurance is $125 and you have a 30% coinsurance, you would be responsible for $37.50 ($125 x .30 = $37.50). Insurance will cover the rest of our contracted rate.
OUT-OF-POCKET MAXIMUM Sometimes insurance begins to cover the ENTIRE cost of your services. That’s because you have reached your “out-of-pocket” maximum, which is the maximum amount you and/or your family are required to pay out-of-pocket for deductibles and copays/coinsurances each insurance year. Please know this information is for educational purposes only and may not accurately describe how your specific insurance functions. It is the responsibility of each client to understand their insurance benefits. However, we hope this is a helpful guide to some terminology that you may encounter.
