A deductible is the amount of money you have to pay out-of-pocket for your covered healthcare services until your insurance company starts to pay.

Example: Arya has insomnia, so she decides to go to the doctor to get it checked out.  She has a $500 deductible, which means that she must pay for all of her healthcare expenses until she spends $500. After paying $450 on the doctor's visit and $50 on a prescription, her $500 deductible is met, and her benefits start to kick in.

To find out what your co-pay is, log onto your Gusto account and follow these steps:

  1. Click the Benefits tab.
  2. Click on the tile of the benefit you'd like to review.  
  3. If you have a deductible, it will appear in the "Plan Details" section.
  4. Your deductible will also appear on your Summary of Benefits and Coverage, which you can download by clicking on the link beside "Policy Name."
