How Does HTH Pay?

  • Example 1: You have gone to the nearest hospital for an emergency and your final bill is $1,500

  • You must pay the co-pay: $100($1,500 - $100 = $1,400)

  • Insurance will pay the remaining $1,400 (100% X $1,400) up to the first $10,000

  • This is called the Basic Medical Expense Benefit

  • Example 2: If you received a hospital bill for $12,000:

    • You would first pay the $100 co-pay ($12,000 - $100 = $11,900)

    • $11,900 - $10,000 (insurance pays100% up to the first $10,000) = $1,900

    • $1,900 X 80% = $1,520 ($1,900 - $1,520 = $380) Insurance pays 80% after $10,000

    • Your final total payment would be $480 ($100(co-pay) + $380 = $480)
