Healthcare costs are confusing and Novant Health is working to help simplify the process.
Many factors affect what your out-of-pocket costs are for a visit or procedure - your insurance plan, your deductible, your copay and your annual income if you don't have insurance coverage. Essentially, no two patients are alike which means no two bills are the same. And the out-of-pocket cost for a person covered by insurance is very different than for someone without insurance. It's always going to be complicated as long as there are deductibles and insurance plans involved.
This video provides further explanation of premiums, deductibles, co-pays, out-of-pocket maximums and other topics to help you gain a better understanding of healthcare expenses.
