The amount you pay for your health insurance every month. In addition to your premium, you usually have to pay other costs for your health care, including a deductible, copayments, and coinsurance.

When shopping for a plan, keep in mind that the plan with the lowest monthly premium may not be the best match for you. If you need a lot of health care, a plan with a higher premium but a lower deductible or out-of-pocket maximum may save you money.
