A $0 deductible means that you'll start paying "after deductible" rates right away! Instead of having to meet that deductible, you'll simply move past it. These plans tend to have more comprehensive coverage but may cost a little more!
Depending on the plan, this will likely mean lower out of pocket costs for services. For services such as surgery and emergency care, this could mean the difference between "full price" and flat copay or coinsurance.
And since your deductible will be met right away, you'll only be responsible for remaining copays and coinsurance up to your out of pocket maximum.
