Deductible Examples 

Sometimes the deductibles for specific insurance categories differ from the general deductible. Below are some common scenarios and how to set them up.

  1. If the General Deductible does not apply to diagnostic or preventive care, enter 0.00 for both Diagnostic and Routine Preventive deductibles. This is the default.


  2. If the General Deductible applies to diagnostic care but not preventive care, leave Diagnostic blank and enter 0.00 for Routine Preventive.


  3. If the General Deductible applies to all care, leave Diagnostic, all individual/family deductible fields blank.

  4. If the diagnostic deductible is different than the general deductible and preventive work has no deductible, enter the deductible for Diagnostic and 0.00 as the deductible for Routine Preventive.
