Yes, If medicare pays more than the secondary insurance allows for a charge, the secondary insurance pays nothing. The balance is written off to a contractual allowance that is agreed upon between the provider of service and the insurance company via contract.

You have Medicare as primary insurance and BCBS as secondary insurance Do you pay the copay on the secondary insurance?

The answer to this question depends on what kind of secondary insurance you have - is it a group health plan? Is it a supplement? If Medicare is primary, there are still deductibles, copays, coinsurance that would need to be satisfied by your secondary insurance. Based on your question, I'm assuming that you have a group health plan with a copayment as your secondary insurance. If so, then yes, you would pay your copayment but it would not exceed the part B deductible.
