That is if the secondary does not have a clause in it that "they will not duplicate benefits" If so they will not always pay the difference. They will figure out the amount they would normally pay, subtract what the primary pays from that amount and pay the difference (which with mine is little to nothing and I end up paying the balance of the bill) Nothing really happens, one is the primary and the other is the secondary insurance for the patient. Primary insurance will pay up to 80% of allowed charges if the deductible is met, and the secondary insurance will pay the remaining 20% of the claim, again, if the deductible for the year has been met.
