In-network means that the provider has a pre-arranged agreement with Health Plan of Nevada. Out-of-network is any provider that doesn’t have predetermined arrangements with Health Plan of Nevada.2
Even when you see an in-network provider, you will usually be charged a fee when you receive care.

You may have to pay it before or after you meet the deductible. Coinsurance is a percentage of the cost you pay for a covered service before or after you’ve met the deductible. A deductible is an amount you must pay out of pocket before your insurance company will begin to cover services.3,4,5
