How Health Plans Work
Benefits terminology and insurance concepts can be really confusing. It’s important to understand commonly used terms like coinsurance, in-and-out-of-network, premiums, deductibles, copays and out-of-pocket maximums so that you know what to expect when you seek medical care. Watch these videos to learn more.
What is Coinsurance?
Coinsurance is the percentage of medical expenses shared by you and your insurance company after you have reached your deductible.
What is In-and Out-of-Network?
In-network health care providers have agreements with your insurance carrier and will typically offer services at a set rate. Out-of-network providers do not.
Premiums, Deductibles, Copays and Out-of-Pocket Maximums
These terms describe how much you pay out of your paycheck, how much you or your insurance pays for doctor visits and the maximum you will pay per year.
Pre-Tax Accounts
American Museum of Natural History is pleased to provide you with the option to contribute to a Health Flexible Spending Account, a Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account and/or a Health Savings Account. Unlike an FSA, an HSA earns interest and is yours to keep if you leave your employer. HSA dollars don’t expire each year, like an FSA, but can be carried over year after year…forever. You can only have an HSA if you are enrolled in a High Deductible Health Plan, or HDHP. Watch these videos to learn more.

Everything you need to know about Dependent Care FSAs
A Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is a pre-tax account that can be used for day care, elder care, and even care for dependents with disabilities.
Everything you need to know about HSAs
A Health Savings Account – or HSA – is a savings account used to put pre-tax dollars aside specifically for your out-of-pocket health expenses.
