Most managed care plans have lower premiums, copays, and/or coinsurance than traditional fee-for-service insurance. Premium, copay, and coinsurance amounts can vary among managed care companies, and even among different services within a single company. In general, it is not required to process claim forms. Copays – The amount you must pay at the time you go for a service, usually a flat fee each time you see a doctor or receive other services. They are sometimes confused with coinsurance, but they are not the same thing.

The health plans are briefly explained below. Although we are going to describe the types of health plans that you can find in the private sector (plans provided by employers and individual insurance plans), many of the plans sponsored by the government use some of the same approaches and terms that private plans. You can get more information about government-funded health plans like Medicare, Medicaid, and CHIP. The HMO plan will generally cover most expenses after your copay and you pay your deductible.

HMO plans often limit your selection of health care providers to those approved in the provider network. This means that you must check the list to make sure that the doctor you want to see is one of the doctors within this network. Otherwise, the bill may not be covered in part or in full. Sometimes you will have to go to an out-of-network facility to get care. It may cost more, but you can lower your costs by discussing this with your health plan administrator, as they sometimes pay more if this is deemed necessary.

Contact your insurer to find out what it will pay and how much you will have to pay, or if you need to get prior authorization to get care outside of the provider network. Catastrophic illness coverage plans may be offered in some state health insurance marketplaces for people who are low-income or exempt from standard health coverage. People with this hardship exemption do not have to pay a penalty when filing their taxes. However, a person requesting to be waived from purchasing a regular health plan cannot receive assistance paying premiums for catastrophic illness coverage, even if the income is very low. Even so, coverage plans for catastrophic illnesses in the health insurance markets have advantages over those that are not purchased in these markets. Catastrophic plans sold in the health insurance market have to cover three annual visits to the doctor and preventive benefits.

An example is insurance that covers catastrophic illness that is known as a hospital-only plan. In general, this plan does not offer coverage for doctor visits, medications or routine medical care, and only begins coverage when a hospital stay and very high expenses arise. Depending on the policy, you'll be expected to pay a few thousand dollars (USD) just for the deductible and a certain percentage of coinsurance on the rest of the bill. You will also have to pay the full cost of any items and services not covered by the plan. Not only health insurance companies, but many different types of institutions and agencies also sponsor managed care plans. These include employers, hospitals, unions, consumer groups, and the government, among others.

It's helpful to know the details of the plan and how it affects your health care. The most common types of managed care plans are: Also, catastrophic plans can end up costing more than the out-of-pocket limit if the person gets care out of network.

If you choose such a plan, see if prescription drugs are covered, ask about the costs involved in out-of-network services, and see if any of these expenses will be included in the out-of-pocket limit. Some other types of insurance suggest that they pay for hospitalization and major medical expenses, but these claims can be misleading as not all information is disclosed. You will need to find out more to make an informed decision. All of these plans require you to pay a monthly fee, referred to as the premium.

Most also require you to pay either a flat fee for doctor visits and other services (known as a copay), or a percentage of the cost (referred to as coinsurance). Some services require you to pay a copay and coinsurance. Each year, most people also pay a certain amount of their health care costs (known as the deductible) before their insurance begins to cover their medical expenses. Once you've met the deductible, your insurance will pay a set percentage of your health care bills for the rest of the year. Some managed care plans require their members to use a primary care provider who coordinates all of a patient's care and has the role of directing care to other specialists. This referring physician is typically a primary care physician responsible for the patient's overall medical care, arranging and approving medical treatments, tests, referrals to specialists, and hospitalizations.

For example, if you need to see a doctor who specializes in the lungs, you must have a referral from your primary care doctor before the specialist can see you. Otherwise, your plan may not pay for the service. If you have a catastrophic illness coverage plan and have a cost-intensive illness like cancer, you can expect to pay a high deductible out of pocket and up to 40% of your hospital bills.

Most catastrophic plans have an out-of-pocket limit, but services that the plan doesn't cover don't count toward that limit. For example, catastrophic plans typically don't cover prescription drugs, which can be expensive considering some of the newer cancer treatment drugs cost more than $100,000 (USD) per year. Coinsurance – A percentage of each medical bill that you must pay, even after you have paid the annual deductible amount. These types of plans typically coordinate or manage the health care of enrollees. There are several types of managed care plans. some plans, such as health maintenance organizations (HMOs), have a more limited network of providers and hospitals, while other models, such as preferred provider organizations (PPOs), have a network of providers more espacious.

You can also appeal your plan's decision if they disagree with covering out-of-network care. See What to do if your health plan denies your claim. Every health plan is different, but some of the commonly excluded and limited coverage services include: unproven and experimental cancer therapies, acupuncture, homeopathic or herbal medicines, long-term care, private duty nursing, drugs or services that are not prescription drugs, equipment, and supplies that may not be medically necessary for your health care. You can also negotiate costs in advance with your doctors, clinics, and hospitals when planning surgeries, procedures, or other treatments.

You can use the information you get from your health plan to find out if the health care facility (hospital, clinic, doctor's office, etc.). is willing to accept the amount paid by the insurance as payment in full. If not, ask if they are willing to deduct the portion they have asked you to pay. It's important to know that some health plans may not cover all of your health care needs.

Here are some things to consider when selecting a plan: Deductible – The amount you must pay each year for health services before the health plan pays for anything. In most plans, members must only use the services of certain health care providers and institutions with whom they have agreements. These plans may require members to choose providers from a particular provider list or network. When you choose to receive care from an out-of-network provider, you often pay more or even pay the entire bill without help from your health plan. Some of these plans will require you to pay at least part of the cost of seeing someone outside of the network if you get the plan's approval before you incur the visit or service (also referred to as prior authorization).

Even though they are sometimes called hospital-only, the plans won't necessarily cover all or even most of your hospital bill. It is important to understand exactly what the plan will cover and not rely on the catastrophic illness plan for health coverage. If your doctor accepts your health plan, often the office will bill the insurer, and then bill you for the amount your health insurance doesn't cover. If not, you may have to pay your medical bills and then complete the forms and submit them to the insurance company to be reimbursed for your health care expenses. You must keep track of your own medical expenses and the payments made by you and your insurance company. These records can be of great help to you in the event of a dispute over your payments or other problems in the future.

For more information, see Keep copies of important medical records. A POS plan is a type of HMO. Primary care physicians in a POS plan typically refer cases to other physicians in the health care plan or network. If your doctor refers you to a non-plan (out-of-network) doctor, before you see the doctor, you should check to see if the plan will cover part or all of the bill. But if you choose a doctor outside the network, you will have to pay a coinsurance, even if the service is covered by the plan.

A PPO plan is a hybrid of a traditional fee-for-service plan (described below) and an HMO plan. Like an HMO plan, you have a number of doctors and hospitals you can go to for the lowest cost sharing. By using the services of these doctors (sometimes referred to as preferred providers or network providers), most of your bills are covered. You will have to pay more money when you select out-of-network health care providers. Fee-for-service plans have the fewest restrictions and offer the widest range of health care providers. They are also known as traditional health plans.

If you have this type of health insurance, you can go to any doctor or hospital that accepts your particular health plan and change doctors at any time. Be on the lookout for health insurance scams (advertisements or agents offering discount medical cards, or “government-sponsored” and therefore very low-cost health insurance). There are also “insurance specialists” or “government agents” who call and ask for personal data or credit and banking information.

These scammers operate online, over the phone, and door-to-door. Treatment and management of most cancer cases cost a lot of money. Some health plans offer supplemental coverage called catastrophic coverage. These plans do NOT cover routine medical expenses, but they may only help cover the most serious cases of health, such as a serious illness or injury. These often look attractive because they have fairly low premiums. It's important to know that these plans generally have high deductibles and routine medical expenses are the responsibility of the patient (unless you also have other coverage along with catastrophic coverage).
