Co-payments or Co-insurance

Co-payments or Co-insurance

Co-insurance or a co-pay is a percentage of each claim above the deductible paid by the insured. For a 20 percent health insurance co-insurance clause, for example, you would pay the deductible plus 20 percent of the covered losses. After the insurer pays 80 percent of the losses up to a specified ceiling, the insurer will start paying 100 percent of the losses.
