This has the effect of giving the insured leeway on meeting the coinsurance
The prospective payment rate excludes direct medical education costs, the cost of bad debts for deductibles and coinsurance
incurred by beneficiaries, and kidney acquisition costs, which continue to be reimbursed under a reasonable-cost based system.

rate equals 1, which, by coincidence, coincides with the definition of full insurance coverage in complete markets.
For example, if the insured has a building insured on an ISO commercial property policy, the coinsurance
percentage is going to be 80, 90, or 100% of the value of the building (depending on the valuation provision in effect at the time of the loss).
(2018) assessed financial requirements pre- and post-parity among carve-in plans, and found a mix of increases and decreases in copayments and coinsurance
among most plans and a lack of evidence mat MHPAEA led to more generous mental health benefits, likely because most employer-provided plans were already at parity pre-MHPAEA.
Researchers noted that if the coinsurance
was waived but there was no follow-on increase in the screening rate, the benefits of screening would not change, but the total cost of screening and treatment would increase to $2.726 million per 1,000 people aged 65 years.
As noted by Dionne, Gourieroux, and Vanasse (2001), a significant positive estimate of [a.sub.3] suggests that policyholders with higher claim probabilities are more likely to select an insurance policy without coinsurance
, indicating the presence of asymmetric information.
Indeed, for almost 40 percent of the new claims, the $3.50 cost of collecting and processing the coinsurance
would exceed the coinsurance
Citigroup Inc (NYSE: C) has announced that it has entered into a coinsurance

For a given coinsurance
rate, a price decline further lowers the net price, increases excess demand, and exacerbates the welfare loss.
A primary example of this phenomenon is the growing use of coinsurance
, where patients pay for a percentage of their drug costs rather than a traditional flat copayment.
