Co-Pays:  A fixed payment set by the insurance carrier, and often noted on your card  ( so you know in advance your minimum payment obligation )  due at the time of each office visit.   This is a " Specialist " office, so if more than one co-pay is listed, look for SP and then the amount.

Co-Insurance:  Often in  addition to a co-pay, it is a percentage of an approved and covered service ( not all services are covered ) , often starting  After your Deductible is met.  For example, your insurance begins paying 80 % ( you pay 20 % ) or insurnace pays 90% (  you pay 10 % ).

Deductible The Out-Of-Pocket patients have agreed , via their insurance contract, to pay physicians before you benefits kick in.  Generally, lower premiums mean higher deductibles, and vice versae ( perhaps like your car insurance or home owners insurance if applicable )
