A fixed dollar amount during the benefit period - usually a year - that an insured person pays before the insurer starts to make payments for covered medical services. Plans may have both per individual and family deductibles.

A form of medical cost sharing in a health insurance plan that requires an insured person to pay a stated percentage of medical expenses that was paid, after the deductible amount if any.
