The term health insurance is generally used to describe a form of insurance that pays for medical expenses. It is sometimes used more broadly to include insurance covering disability or long-term nursing or custodial care needs.
Scheduled health insurance plans are not meant to replace traditional comprehensive health insurance plans. This type of health insurance is a basic policy providing access to day-to-day health care such as going to the doctor or getting a prescription drug. They generally pay limited benefits amounts directly to the service provider. Annual benefits maximums for a typical scheduled health insurance plan are $1,000 to $25,000.
Copayment: The amount that the patient must pay at each visit or service with a doctor. For example, a patient might pay a $45 copayment for a doctor's visit, or to obtain a prescription. A copayment must be paid each time a particular service is obtained.
Coinsurance: The alternative to a Copayment is coinsurance, the patient is responsible for a percentage of the total cost. For example, the member might have to pay 20% of the cost of a surgery. So, if the surgery cost $10,000, the patient would pay $2000.
Premium: The amount the patient pays to the health insurance company each month for the medical coverage. Exclusions: The patient is expected to pay the full cost of service that are exclusions.
Out-of-pocket maximums: Similar to coverage limits, except that in this case, the member's payment obligation ends when they reach the out-of-pocket maximum, and the health plan pays all further covered costs.
Coverage limits: Health insurance plans typically only pay for medical care up to a certain dollar amount per year and/or over the lifetime of the coverage.
In-Network Provider: A health care provider on a list of providers preselected by the health insurance company. The health insurance company will offer discounted copayments or coinsurance, or additional benefits, to see an in-network health care provider. Providers in network are providers who have a contract with the health insurance company to accept discounted rates.
Capitation: An amount paid by an insurer to a health care provider, for which the provider agrees to treat all members of the insurer.
Prescription Drug Plan: This type of plan allows patients to make a copayment for prescription drugs.
