Medicare has various deductibles and co-insurance depending on what service is provided. In general Medicare is known as the 80/20 plan since apart from deductibles payable by the beneficiary, Medicare generally pays 80% of the Medicare allowable amount and the beneficiary pays 20% of the Medicare allowable amount.

Yes, most people on Medicare will need to pay a copay in order to go to physical therapy appointments. This is considered to be a specialist. If you have other health insurance outside of Medicare, this may cover the copay amount.

Why will family Dr charge me copay and visit to cardiologist does not?

no, there is a deductable and after day 60 there is a per day copay

Yes. Thanks to health reform, Medicare beneficiaries now get a one-time "Welcome to Medicare" physical exam during the first year after they enrolled in Medicare Part B, and then, after a year enrolled in Medicare Part B, they get a yearly wellness exam. Beneficiaries also receive a decent list of free tests with NO copay and more tests WITH a copay. The details are in the Medicare Resource Center link below.

The co-pay is typically owed to the provider of the service(s).

The Medicare Part B deductible for 2009 is $135.00. After you meet the $135.00 deductible, you will pay 20% of the bill unless you have a Medicare Supplement that pays the 20% for you. Some Medicare Supplements pay the $135.00 for you. If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan (Part C) your "copay" will vary between the type of plan, the company that offers it, and whether or not the doctor is a family doctor or a specialist. If you have one of these plans, usually a PPO or HMO, you don't pay the Medicare Part B deductible of $135.00

Yes. That's why one should have Medicaid (if eligible) or supplemental insurance.

The most popular Medicare HMO is Secure Horizons. It offers a primary care physician that provides referrals to specialists and the insured is only responsible for a copay.

yes but you are required to give them your medicare number so that they can also bill medicare to offset some of the costs of treating your non-service connected disabilities. You may also have a copay

AnswerIt depends on the allowed amounts. Even if it does pay something it will never pay the entire copay.

"The most affordable Humana medicare advantage plan depends on you and your budget. There are many different plans, such as short term plans, copay plans etc. You need to find the one that fits you best."

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.

Copay is a relatively recent term. It is not hyphenated. In general, short words like this are not hyphenated.

Yes, but unlike other procedures that are 80%/20% copay, knee & hips are 70%/30% which means that either secondary insurance pays the thousands of dollars in copayments or the patient pays.

A copay is a small fixed amount required by a health insurer to be paid by the insured for each outpatient visit or drug prescription.

I assume that you are saying you have a copay with Medicare. If that is the case you need to call them to get a list of qualifying dentists in your area and make an appointment asap.

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.

Question is who is primary health coverage and second and even third. I have a retirement coverage only with basic coverage, big deductibles, big copay and big out of pocket, but free. I how have Medicare with part B and very close in chasing either a medicare supplement plan or a medicare advantage plan in Lu of original medicare. Also I am covered under my wife's employment health coverage under her policy. Question who is first or primary, medicare or the coverage taking place of medicare, my retirement policy with lowest basic coverage or wife's coverage from work also coverage me. The answers I get are all different depending on either coverage I ask. Please help me, thanks

Most doctors will charge a copay for a recheck. Copayments are paid on an individual basis and normally for each visit to the doctor.

Medicaid/Medicare do cover CPAP therapy. However, the amount they cover will vary from plan to plan. Some are covered completely, some there is a deductible or copay before the costs are covered. Check with your insurance company to be sure.

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.

Office Visits - $20 copay Whenever you go to see your regular doctor you are required to pay a $20 copay.
