What Is the Difference Between a Copay and Coinsurance?

There are many different types of cost sharing, but the most common are deductibles, copays, and coinsurance.

  • A copay is a set amount you pay for the service.
  • Coinsurance is when you pay a percentage of the cost for an item or service.
