Tracking your deductible and out-of-pocket maximum

Knowing how close you are to reaching your plan deductible and out-of-pocket maximum can help you better manage and understand your costs. By keeping track of your deductible, you’ll have a better idea of whether you’ll pay the full charges, a copay, or coinsurance for upcoming services.

And if you know you’ve met your out-of-pocket maximum, you’ll know that you’ll receive covered services at no charge for the rest of the year.*

Here are some tools and resources to help you track your deductible and out-of-pocket maximum.

Explanation of Benefits (EOB)

Your EOB is not a bill. It's a summary of the services you received, how much they cost, and how much your health plan paid. Use it to keep track of your expenses, your deductible, and your out-of-pocket maximum.

To see your EOBs online, visit

  • See a sample EOB and learn how to read it.
  • Before your EOB arrives, use our Estimates tool to get the most current overview of how close you are to reaching your deductible and out-of-pocket maximum.

If you have a health reimbursement arrangement (HRA), health savings account (HSA), or flexible spending account (FSA) be sure to save your EOBs in case you need to validate a claim or for income tax purposes.

Track your costs online, anytime: Sign on to and go to My Coverage and Costs to see your claims summary. It lists the charges for services you’ve received.
