FREE PREVENTIVE CARE
All the options cover eligible in-network preventive care — like physical exams, flu shots, and screenings — at 100% when you use in-network providers.
A copay is a fixed amount you pay for a health care service. Copays do not count toward your deductible but do count toward satisfying your annual out-of-pocket maximum.
Medical services that are not considered preventive care or not subject to a copay will require you to pay the full cost of care until you meet your annual deductible.
Once you’ve met your deductible, you and American share the cost of care, called coinsurance. When you use in-network providers, you’ll pay 20% and American will pay 80% of the cost until you’ve reached your out-of-pocket maximum.
An out-of-pocket maximum is the most you’ll pay during a year. After you reach your out-of-pocket maximum, American picks up the full cost of covered medical care for the remainder of the year.
