Understanding Insurance Language

To help with some of the common insurance lingo, we have listed several of the most common definitions that we feel are important to be aware of.


The amount an insured person is expected to pay for a medical expense at the time of the visit.



More generally, a sharing of risk between the insurer and the insured. Also called copay.


Maximum benefit

An annual maximum benefit amount is the maximum dollar amount that an insurer has to pay for all healthcare services for the insured during a year.



A portion of a claim to be paid by the insured before any payment is made by the insurer.


Coordination of Benefits

Benefits under one plan are coordinated with benefits from another insurance plan (that covers the same benefits), so payments won’t be duplicated. All families must submit COB information annually, if using benefits, in order to expedite the claims paying process.

Health Management Organizations (HMO)

Many HMO’s require referrals if you are seeing another physician other than your primary care physician (PCP). Please be aware if your insurance requires a referral. It is important that before you request a referral you have made your appointment for the service that requires a referral. In addition, we require 5 business days to complete your referral. For your convenience you can fill out our on-line form by clicking here or you can click here to download our printable referral request sheet and bring it in person.
