This term refers to the percentage of costs of a covered health care service for which you are responsible. For example, if your co-insurance is 20% and your providers submit a claim for $10,000, your portion will be $2,000 and your health plan will pay $8,000. Co-insurance, deductibles and co-pays make up the total costs you pay toward a claim.
