Do I have to meet my deductible before the insurance begins to pay?

A Answers (1)

  • Generally speaking, you have to meet your deductible before your plan will begin to pay for covered health care expenses. The way in which you meet your deductible can vary depending on the type of insurance you have. However, certain preventive care must be covered under a health plan (at 100%), even if you have not met your deductible. Review your plan documents for specific details on your plan's deductible (if applicable).
