Original Medicare, Part A and Part B

Each year, you generally must pay a set amount (a deductible) for your health care before Medicare pays its share. Then, Medicare pays its share, and you pay your share (coinsurance) for covered services and supplies. If you have Medicare Part A, you can generally get the covered services listed in Part A Benefits. If you have Medicare Part B, you can generally get the covered services listed in Part B Benefits. You usually pay a monthly premium for Medicare Part B. For more info, see How much does Medicare cost? You generally don’t need to file Medicare claims. Providers (like doctors, hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, and home health agencies) and suppliers are required by law to file Medicare claims for the covered services and supplies you get.

Q & A: Do I need Medicare Part B coverage?

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

As a result, our combined annual cost for Part B will be over $5,800 for the year. My health-care plan (Horizon Blue Cross Standard) will cover all deductibles and copays if we carry the Medicare Part B as Primary so my out-of-pocket could be zero. However, the Horizon plan also has Catastrophic Coverage which will also cover copays and deductibles if our total out-of-pocket exceeds $5,000 for in-network providers and $8,000 for out-of-network providers. We generally do not pay more than $1,000 a year in copays and deductibles, and can usually find in-network providers for our medical services. Of course, there is no way to predict what the future will hold.
