Loan Nguyen #21 | Bonus: How Health Insurance Works

When I consider purchasing an individual health insurance plan for myself or my family, do I have any financial obligations beyond the monthly premium and annual deductible?
Answers: It depends on the plan, but some plans have the following cost-sharing elements that you should be aware of.
Co-Payments: Some plans include a co-payment, which is typically a specific flat fee you pay for each medical service, such as $30 for an office visit. After the co-payment is made, the insurance company typically pays the remainder of the covered medical charges.
