A term commonly used by health insurance companies to designate any health care provider, whether a doctor, psychologist or nurse, a hospital or clinic.
An organization hired by a health insurance plan to provide mental health and/or substance abuse treatment services.
A specific charge that your health insurance plan may require that you pay for a specific medical service or supply, also referred to as a "co-pay." For example, your health insurance plan may require a $15 co-payment for an office visit or brand-name prescription drug, after which the insurance company often pays the remainder of the charges.
The "Deductible" is the amount of money that you will have to pay out-of-pocket on health care expenses before your insurance company will start to pay for claims.
Therefore, if your deductible is $2,000.00, you will have paid for that amount in doctors visits, hospital bills and other medical or mental health expenses before your insurance begins paying for claims.
