HMO: Health Maintenance Organization Group insurance that entitles members to services at participating hospitals. – Traditionally lower monthly payments and co-pay. Doctors serve as gate-keepers to care.
PPO: Preferred Provider Organization Need to get our care from doctors who are on the insurances, “Preferred Provider List” if you wan them to pay for most of it. Not required to go through your primary doctor for all visits. Typically more expensive.
Monthly Premium Monthly payment for insurance plan.
Deductible A specific dollar amount that your health insurance company may require that you pay out-of-pocket each year before your health insurance plan begins to make payments for claims. – Not all health insurance plans require a deductible. – As a general rule (though there are many exceptions), HMO plans typically do not require a deductible, while most PPO plans do.
Office Visit (Co-Pay) An office visit is the amount you pay when you see the doctor, or dentist for routine care.
Coinsurance The amount that you are obligated to pay for covered medical services after you’ve satisfied any co-payment or deductible required by your health insurance plan.
