What’s a deductible?

A deductible is the amount you’ll pay out of pocket for your care before insurance kicks in. For example, if your plan includes a deductible of $1,000, you’ll pay the first $1,000 in covered services. After that, your insurance will cover 60-90% of the bills, depending on your plan.

What’s a MOOP?

A MOOP (or maximum out-of-pocket) is the most you’ll spend in a calendar year on eligible health expenses. Once you’ve met your MOOP, your Medicare Advantage plan will pay for any covered services for the rest of the year. Find out more about your Medicare costs here.
