Cost Sharing

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

The share of costs covered by your insurance that you pay out of your own pocket. This term generally includes deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments, but it doesn't include premiums, balance billing amounts for non-network providers, or the cost of non-covered services. Cost sharing in Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program also includes premiums.
