Here are some examples of frequently asked questions regarding medical and prescription coverage.
What is the difference between copays and co insurance? A copay is usually a set dollar amount paid to a doctor, specialist, etc. for a service. Whereas, co insurance is a percentage i.e. 10, 20, 30, percent of the bill per visit or service.
What is the Coverage Gap or "Doughnut Hole"? This refers to medicare prescription drug coverage or part D drug coverage. The doughnut hole or gap is reached when a person's drug coverage limit $2850, total prescription costs have been exceeded, at which point the cost of prescriptions will increase to 47.5% for name brand medications and 72% of the drug cost for generics until the true out of pocket of $4550 is met.
What type of plan do I have? Most plans are either PPO (preferred provider organization) or HMO (health maintenance organization). PPO's generally use a network of doctors, specialists, hospitals, etc, but you can see providers out of network, usually at a higher cost to you. HMO's use network providers and require referrals from a primary care physician and do not cover out of network unless it is an emergency or urgent situation.
