What is the total out-of-pocket maximum?

The maximum dollar amount that must be met by you out of your own funds during the benefit period, before the insurance company pays 100% of all covered expenses, usually up to an annual or lifetime maximum.

Before this maximum is met, you and the insurance company share the cost of all covered expenses as set by the co-insurance after the initial deductible has been met. The amount is determined by adding your deductible and coinsurance out of pocket maximum together.

For instance, if you have a $3,000 deductible and a coinsurance out of pocket maximum of $5,000, then your total annual expenses is $8,000 for eligible medical benefits. Regular premiums do not count towards meeting the maximum out-of-pocket total.
