Below are definitions of common terminology used to describe the costs that you incur when receiving medical care.

Co-payment: A fixed dollar amount ($25, $40, etc.) you pay directly to the provider at time of service.

Deductible: The amount you pay each calendar year before your insurance begins to pay.

Coinsurance: This basically means you and your health insurance plan share expenses. Each of you pays a part of the total cost. Once you have met your deductible you pay a percentage of the cost; the insurance pays the remainder.

Out-of-Pocket Maximum: The most you would have to pay in a calendar year out of your own pocket.

In-Network Provider: Doctors, hospitals and other health care professionals with whom Cigna has negotiated the best prices. Out-of-Network Provider: Doctors, hospitals and other health care professionals who have not entered into a contract with Cigna to provide services at the best prices. Reasonable & Customary Fees: When services are received from out -of-network providers, eligible charges are determined by a negotiated fee schedule. If your provider’s fees are higher than what is considered “reasonable & customary” you are responsible for the additional amount. Explanation of Benefits: This document shows all claims processed in a specified period for you and all family members covered on your insurance plan, and remaining balances for deductibles and out-of-pocket costs. The provider’s charges as well as the network-negotiated rates are reflected on this statement in addition to the amount that you are responsible to pay .
