During your working life, you pay Medicare tax out of your paycheck. That tax pays for your Medicare Part A (hospitalization). When you turn 65 and enroll in Medicare, you can choose to enroll in Part B (medical/doctor's office). The premium for Part B for 2009 is $96.40 per month (if you make less than $85,000.00 per year) which is automatically deducted from your Social Security check.
Medicare beneficiaries pay premiums (most people do not have to pay a premium for Medicare Part A); also, working retirees pay Medicare payroll tax.

That would be covered under the terms of your policy. In general that is what supplemental, (secondary) insurance is primarily for. Most "supplemental" plans pay the 20% that Medicare didn't pay only AFTER seeing an "explanation of benefits" statement--i.e. proof that Medicare paid their part. If Medicare denies a service all together, the supplemental plan is often under no obligation to pay at all, as they are there to "supplement" Medicare, not take the place of it in cases of denial. This is especailly true if Medicare denies because the service was deemed "not medically necessary". So, in short, no. Medicare supplements often do not cover services if they are denied by the primary (Medicare).
