No, absolutley not. The word deductible, in this case might actually be better understood if it was stated as: "Health Services Deductible" or "Deductible for Health Services Received", instead of simply "deductible".  It could be said the premium is the cost of "owning"  your plan, whereas the deductible is the cost of (or one of the costs of) "using" your plan.
