Depends on the doctors office billing procedures.

yes, your secondary insurance should cover this amount if you have reached your deductible with them. Normally, if the primary insurance applies a deductible or co-insurance/co-pay and you have not met your deductible on your secondary policy, depending on your policy they may apply the remaining balance to your deductible. Normally after the deductible is met on the secondary ins. they pay 100% of your remaining balance.

What is the definition of primary coverage in regard to medical insurance?

Often, a person will have "primary" insurance and "secondary" insurance. For example, if you have insurance through your job, and your husband has insurance through his job, then your primary insurance will be the one through your job, and your secondary insurance will be the one through your husband's job. Also, your husband's insurance through his job will be his primary, and yours through your job will be his secondary. There can be some exceptions to this though. For example, if you were married, had a child, then divorced and remarried (retaining custody of the child), and both your ex and current husbands have insurance through work, then the one who's birthday is first is considered the "primary" insurance, and the other is the "secondary" insurance. But there will still be a deductible with each one that has to be met before either one will pay.

Does a secondary beneficiary only receive funds from a life insurance policy if the primary beneficiary has already passed?

Yes. A secondary beneficiary only becomes beneficiary if the primary beneficiary dies before the insured. Say the insured and primary beneficiary are involved in a fatal auto accident but the insured dies an hour before the primary beneficiary. The insurance proceeds would not go to the secondary beneficiary but to the estate of the primary beneficiary. If the primary beneficiary dies an hour before the insured then the secondary beneficiary receives the proceeds. If an insured wants both to receive monies they can name more than one person as primary beneficiary and in what percentage for each person. They could also leave it to their estate and handle distribution by a will.

If insured by your employer and your spouse's employer which is the primary insurance?

Your insurance through your employer is your primary insurance, and your spouse's primary insurance is through his/her employer. If both husband and wife are insured on both insurance policies, then you have primary and secondary coverage. But you will still have to pay any deductibles and co-pays before either policy will pay. The deductible is the amount you first have to pay (usually at the first of the year) before the insurance will pay anything. The co-pay is your percentage of what the insurance doesn't pay, which for many health insurance companies is 80% for them and 20% for you. There is sometimes a co-insurance that you have to pay also. Ex: Insurance companies have a set amount that they pay for any office visit, procedure, etc. If the bill is over what the insurance pays, then you are responsible for the balance.

If you have the same insurance for your primary and secondary can you still end up with a balance you owe?

Having the same insurance company twice, as a primary and secondary, means you are paying twice for the same insurance policy. They probably will not cover the same thing twice, or they may treat it as two different policies and may treat it that way. If they were two different policies, The primary would deal with any deductible and copay before fulfilling its contractual obligation and so would the secondary policy depending on the wording of the contract. Unless there is no deductible and copay, or if one policy covers the deductible/copy of the other, there will still be a balance you owe. There is also the situation where your medical provider will not accept or fully participate in your insurance policy, in which case you may owe the difference between the doctors bling amount and what was paid by the insurance(s).
