This is a legal question. What does the court order say? www.steveshorr.com/family.law.htm
WHEN MEDICARE IS PRIMARY, THE PATIENT IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SECONDARY COPAY.
This does not sound like an auto policy, is this medical? If so, you are responsible for the copay. I would contact your benefits administrator.
Its insurance paid by the insured person each time a medical service is accessed. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copay
That's a good attorney question, but I would not think so. Copay and deductable would be medical expenses, not medical insurance.
In most cases, a copay is un-reimbursable and the copay is un-reimbursable. It is ultimately up to the judge to decide what medical expenses are covered and not covered through the child support or custody case.
The copay amount is the different between what the cost of the medical procedure is and what the insurance will cover. Some HMO's have standard copay fees for doctors office visits, other do not. Prescription insurance plans will also have a copay amount, again to cover the cost difference between what the insurance company will pay versus the price of the medication.
No. Workman's Compensation pays 100% of medical expenses resulting from the workplace injury.
The doctor's charges and the copay are separate fees, of course. With that, even if the charges are less than the copay, the physician still collects the patient's copay. At anytime, the physician can waive, then write-off, the copay, but I wouldn't advise this.
If you live in a state where an 18 year old is a legal adult then that adult is legally responsible for himself or herself. He or she is responsible for his own debts and liabilities. You are not liable for co-pays on his medical bills. If you are covering your adult child on your health insurance you are responsible to pay the premiums. If you choose not to cover your adult child on your health insurance plan you are not required to keep him or her covered under your plan. He or she is responsible to obtain their own health insurance plan if you choose not to put him on your plan. Most insurance plans will not place an adult child on your insurance plan if he or she is not attending school....and there can be restrictions on the amount of classes a student is taking to qualify to stay on your health insurance plan. Any adult child living in your home you are not legally responsible to provide health insurance, pay his or her bills or medical bills. You are even legally allowed to charge that adult child for expenses incurred by him or her.
My husband and I were on the medical card when he had his vasectomy. The entire procedure was covered. This was in 2005 and we had to pay a $2.00 copay. We had to find an office that would accept the medical card and we were lucky enough to find one.

I have been a medical biller for over 10 years. It is always whoever is going to the doctor that one's insurance will pay. So, the husband goes to the doctor it is his insurance that would be the primary insurance and the wife's insurance could then be billed for the balance, i.e. copay, deductible, etc.

If you are talking about the med you get for workers comp pain they do pay the 100% (do not use your ins.)... (doctors visits as well) 100% If you have been injured on the job, Worker's Compensation is responsible for the WHOLE thing. It is not responsible for the 20% copay for your health insurance.

copilot, coworker, costar, copay
The small fee that is paid at the time of the office visit is called a copay. The copay amount, usually $15.00 to $30.00 depending on your plan, is all that you pay for the cost of the office visit. Coinsurance is a percentage of a larger hospital medical bill that you pay after you meet your deductible. For instance, if you have a "80/20" plan, with a $1000.00 deductible you are responsible for the first $1000.00 of the bill. Then the insurance company pays 80% of the bill and you pay 20% of the bill. The 20% is your coinsurance.
