What's a deductible?
A deductible is the amount you pay for health care services before your health insurance begins to pay.
For example, if your plan deductible is $1,500, you would pay 100 percent of your health care charges up front until the amount you paid reached $1,500. After that, your insurance company will pay a percentage of the charges based on the details of your plan.
