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.

Are you liable for any unpaid copay charges on your 18.5 yr old stepson who lives with his girlfriend?

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.

Coinsurance refers to a small fee that must be paid by the patient at the time of an office visit.?

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.
