    insurance terms

    Co-insurance

    It is the percentage ratio of every medical bill shared by insurance company and the insured(student). In most plans, the standard co-insurance ratio is 80%:20% in which 80% is covered under insurance and 20% is paid by the insured(student). ‘Co-insurance forms the major portion of the Out-of-pocket maximum limit’

    Deductible

    Deductible It is a pre-defined amount, paid by the insured(student) as a one-time expenses before the insurance covers for the medical expenses. It is not applicable at medical facilities where co-payment(copay) is applied.

    Co-payment

    It is another pre-defined amount paid by the insured(student) for each consultation or treatments at particular medical providers such as physicians, urgent care, specialists and ER. It is also applied for Prescription drugs in some plans.

    Out-of-pocket maximum

    Out-of-pocket maximum limit It is the maximum amount paid by an insured(student) from his/her pocket for all the medical expenses during an insurance period. Once the insured(student) reaches the mentioned ‘out-of-pocket maximum’ limit according to one medical bill or all the bills combined, the insurance covers 100% of the allowed amount for covered services. “It constitutes policy Deductible, Co-insurance portion of the insured and Copays”

    Inpatient

    It is used in medical care both to refer to a type of patient, or to refer to a type of care. Inpatient simply means someone who is a patient in a hospital. An inpatient is confined to the hospital for treatment. Inpatient treatment refers to in case of US healthcare as type of treatment where a hospital is assigned to the patient.

    Preferred Providers

    Medical providers such as Physicians, Hospitals and other health care providers who have been contracted to provide specific medical care at negotiated prices. Preferred Providers are also called In-network providers, which refer to the providers in the network or system of the Insurance company or its claims administrator. For e.g. Student Cover Insurance plans from UHCSR has UnitedHealthCare OptionsPPO (Preferred Provider Operators) as its Preferred provider network.

    Preferred Allowance

    It is the amount a Preferred Provider will accept as payment in full for covered medical. The difference between standard medical expenses and Preferred allowance is considered as discount in the EOB (claim explanation) document.

    Non-Preferred Provider/Out of Network providers

    Non-Preferred Provider/Out of Network providers are the type of providers which have not agreed to any prearranged fee schedules. Insured's may incur significant out-of-pocket expenses with these providers such as a higher deductible amount and a lesser co-insurance coverage as compared to a Preferred provider. Charges in excess of insurance payment are the insured’s(student’s) responsibility.

    Network Area

    The 50-mile radius around the local school campus the named insured is attending

    Usual, Customary & Reasonable Charges

    Usual, Customary & Reasonable Charges These are type of charges (also sometimes called UCR) are typical or standard for your region. Let's say the UCR fee (based on an accurate study of doctors' charges) for an anaesthesiologist is $500. If the insured(student) being charged $600, your insurance will pay its percentage of the $500. You'll pay anything above that percentage of the $500, plus your deductible.
