How much do us congressman pay for medical coverage?
The US congress is covered under the FEHBP system - they have a choice of over 300 health care options. So it depends on the plan they pick. The Government pays about 70%-75% of the cost so if they pick a Blue Cross Blue Shield family plan that costs $1,327.80/mo., they would only have to cover $430.04/mo.

The premium charged for health insurance is based on a person's health, medical history, age, amounts of deductibles and co-payments and the "richness" of the benefits provided by the policy. "Richness" refers to the extent of benefits provided, the degree of choice of providers, annual and lifetime… benefit limits, and other factors. With respect to any insurance, premium is always paid in advance, so almost by definition, a premium has been paid at the time the insurance is used (if it was not timely paid, the policy would normally have been canceled). In fact, before a policy is initially issued, a premium must accompany the application. (MORE)
If you have medical insurance at work that pays 80 percent of medical bills can you get additional coverage for the other 20 percent?
Yes and no. There are supplemental insurance programs available - do an internet search for "supplemental insurance." Programs such as these will help pay that remaining percentage - in most cases, a large portion of it at least. Adding supplemental coverage can be a good option. I have an acciden…t supplemental that does exactly what you are asking. It will pay up to $5000 per person per year for any expenses related to an accident only that your primary carrier does not pay. This means it will pay for deductibles, co-pays (like your 20%), extra services (your plan only pays for 6 physical therapy visits and you need 10) etc. Because it only pays what your primary carrier does not it is very inexpensive ($30/month for the whole family). If you also want coverage in the event of illness you can also by supplemental products for that as well. (MORE)

Since most personal auto insurance policies (actually, this goes for most commercial auto policies, too) don't have a property damage deductible, the most you would have to pay is your own deductible for the repairs to your vehicle, plus any betterment your carrier applies to the damaged components …of your vehicle. So, say you have full coverage on your 1995 Honda Accord with a $100.00 deductible. You hit a pole in a parking lot, bending the pole. Your carrier will pay for all of the pole damage. Since the damages to your vehicle are $1000.00, your carrier will pay $900.00. If, however, you had prior damage on, say, the bumper that hit the pole, your carrier might deduct up to 50% for the replacement cost of that bumper. If they use used or copycat parts, they might not take that deduction. Or they might take off a little from your payment for scratched paint, etc. this happened to my wife. We paid the standard deductable and our insurance covered all the cost. We got bills from the electric company but they were all paid by our insurance. (MORE)

When a noncustodial parent is ordered to pay unreimbursed medical expenses how can you prove the custodial parent has coverage when you have verbally verified it with the carrier and she denies it?
Answer . Have your attorney issue a document subpeona to the carrier to get proof of the coverage.. Answer . Can you still subpeona if the rights of the noncustodial parent have been recently terminated? The information requested would only be during the time frame that rights were effective… to prove that the custodial parent had insurance coverage that she failed to relay to domestic relations.

How do you determine how much you have to pay in workman's comp coverage for your employees as a small business owner?
Call your current insurance agent or broker and ask. You may want to contact a second broker as well, but be sure to let them know your current agent is searching for coverage for you, and to whom he's applying for coverage. Help your agent out by *completely* filling out your applications. I know i…t's a pain, but when his underwriters see that you took the time, you'll probably get better attention and pricing because you're complete and thorough - a trait they like to see in management of a business they're being asked to insure.

Who pays the medical bill if you are involved in an accident where the at fault party is uninsured and you don't have uninsured motorist coverage but you do have medical insurance?
This is a great question. My husband was hit by a car while on his motorcycle last June. He DID NOT have uninsured motorist on his bike and the woman had no insurance at all, so unfortunately we could not go after her for any money. He was in the hospital for one month, 8 surgeries and is still unab…le to walk like he used to and may never be able to. He lives in constant pain and because we did not have uninsured motorist coverage on the bike, we are at a loss. However, I am attempting to use my auto insurance to try to recoup some money. My husband's health insur. paid the hospital bill of over $300.000.00, but now has a lien on my home for the remaining balance of $165,000.00. My attorney is in negotiations to get that waived. We did recoup $25,000.00 from the owner of the car she was driving's insurance, but Blue Cross is taking that, we do not get a penney. My attorney never advised me to use my medical coverage of my insurance, so I don't know if that could help or not. Maybe I'll try that route too!!. Hope I've been of some help.. Check your auto insurance policy to see if you have medical payments that will pay your medical expense up to $ amount. If you do, then your insurance company will pay up to the $ amount. Or, if you do not have auto medical insurance, have your regular medical insurance pay.. Answer . The person at fault needs to pay your bill. You need to take him to court and have his wages garnished for your bills. If that is not a possibility for you, then your medical insurance should cover it. Answer Also, check with your insurance agent regarding the extra medical coverage you may have purchased along with your auto insurance policy. Most have some. (MORE)

If my employer provides 100 percent medical coverage for myself and my spouse has family coverage including dental and vision through her job which can you use?
Answer . Use the one that is best for your purposes. There are many issues: which one does your doctor take, the hospital take, the lab take, etc. Which one has a big deductible, which one has a maximum lifetime payout, which one will you lose if you keep generating charges? My best suggestion i…s take all the cards out at the doctor's office and ask...they will probably know better than you and can get information off the internet which will help such as: how much of your deductible have you burned through? If nearly all on one policy, why not use that so you are not out more money that year. Hope this helps! (MORE)

In Canada they have medical coverage by the government how much do they have to pay for their coverage?
It varies by every province, as each province administers their own health care coverage. Typically, the cost for basic health coverage is either free or very little. The "very little" could be an amount payable monthly, quarterly or even deducted from your pay from your employer. Costs for prescri…ptions vary as well, province to province and could depend on your earned income as to how much you pay. (MORE)
If you pay your medical coverage every Thursday how long will it last if you were to leave your job?
Depends on the company's policies and any agreements you make on parting from your job. The policy NAY terminate the instant you leave the job (unusual but possible). More likely, it would typically continue until the next Thursday, although most insurance companies allow a month's grace period, bef…ore cancelling the policy.. If you wish to continue your insurance coverage at your own expense after you leave your job, look up COBRA as it relates to insurance.. Check your employer's insurance policy before acting on this!. Check with your HR department, but usually health insurance is prepaid, so it would last to the Thursday following your leaving the job. You may be eligible for COBRA, but you will pay the entire cost of the insurance--in my case (single for an HMO) it was upwards of $550. If you use the insurance after that Thursday, then you'll need to pay up for the COBRA amount. (MORE)

First dollar coverage in health insurance means that your insurance covers health care expenses without copayments or deductibles having to be paid first.
The right amount would be Zero, It doesn't make much sense to pay extra for medical coverage on ahome insurance policy when that's already covered under yourmedical insurance policy. Ever heard of Double-coverge? It's illegal to get paid for the sameloss twice anyway. Adding Medical coverage on a… home insurance policy is generallywhat we refer to as "Beefing up" a policy.

Does noncustodial parent have to pay a medical bill if he carries coverage for the child and the custodial parent chose to take the child to a dr that was not in network?
You are parents. Discuss the matter. Possibly the best care was out of network, so do not jump to conclusions without verifying the reason the child was taken there. Perhaps you could ask for the difference of network vs out of network.
Yes, you do. GAP coverage covers the difference between the value of the car and the amount owed. That means that you are making payments on the car, which is financed, which requires full coverage, insurance wise.
This will vary from case to case. It is determined when figuring out child support payments, and the details will be figured out within the court order that defines the child support details. Each state, and sometimes each county within the state, has different formulas to determine support payme…nts. Many times the portion of medical expnses will match the support payments. For example, in my own case I am the custodial parent. I am responsible for 40% of the "cost to raise a child" per my state's (PA) calculations. This makes the non-custodial responsible for 60% of her care. That carries over to other expenses. Any bills not covered by our daughter's insurance are split 40/60. Our support order also clarifies this with only begining after the first $200 in medical bills are payed by myself. This also carries into other expenses. If I were to send her to private school, he'd have to pay 60% of tuition. Any sports and other extra curricular activities would also be split in this manner. (MORE)
