Terms to Know:
The amount you must pay for the cost of a doctor visit or other medical service.
The percent of your insurance that you share with your insurance carrier. For example, if you have an 80/20 plan, you pay 20% of the full cost in addition to your deductible.
The amount you owe for covered health care services before your health insurance plan begins to pay. For example, if your deductible is $1,000, your plan won’t pay anything until you’ve paid $1,000 for covered services.
The total of your costs, including all co-pays and co-insurance amounts.
The following hospital charges are the same for all, but an individual’s responsibility may vary, depending on payment plans negotiated with individual health insurers. Additionally, the amount an insurance company reimburses Virtua will vary from the charges listed.
Charges are not the same as prices; charges are like a sticker price that is negotiated down for virtually all healthcare customers. They’re contained in a large report called a chargemaster.
