Brush up on some key terms that go along with our health and financial benefits offered through Mohawk Industries.

 Coinsurance - the insured individual’s share of costs for a covered health care service. This is calculated as a percentage (e.g., 20 percent) of the allowed amount for the service after the deductible is met. The Company pays the rest of the allowed amount.

Deductible - the amount an individual or family must pay for health care services before the Company begins to pay for services. The deductible may not apply to all services.

In-Network – benefits associated with a health insurance carrier’s network of doctors, hospitals, clinics and labs that accept allowed amounts as payment in full. Members pay lower out-of-pocket costs when they use these providers.

Out-of-pocket costs - costs you pay before your insurance begins to pay its share (your deductible, copayments, coinsurance, and your out-of-pocket maximum).

Out-Of-Network - benefits associated with non-contracted health care providers. Members may pay higher out-of pocket costs for these services and may have to file a separate claim.

Out-Of-Pocket Maximum (OOP Max) - the amount an insured person will have to pay in out-of-pocket costs within a policy period. Health insurance will begin paying 100 percent of health care costs after the out-of-pocket limit has been reached. Each plan has limits and exclusions not included in the out-of-pocket limit. Premiums you pay from your paycheck are not applied to the out-of-pocket limit.

Premiums - the monthly cost you pay for health insurance. Premiums are deducted directly from your paycheck.

Reasonable and customary charges - The amount paid for a medical related service in a geographic area based on what providers in the area usually charge for the same or similar medical service.
