The deductible is the amount the policyholder must pay out-of-pocket before the insurance takes over.
In this example, the policyholder must pay $350 out-of-pocket.

Coinsurance splits the responsibility of claims between the insurance company and policyholder.
The remaining 2,500 - 350 = $2,150 is split between the policyholder and the insurance company.
In this example, the policyholder pays 40 percent and the insurance company pays 60 percent.
With coinsurance, you pay 0.4*2,150 = 860.00

Therefore, your total out-of-pocket cost is 350 + 860.00 = $1,210.00.
