NWR - how much do any of you know about medicare?

My FI aunt whom he is currently living with because she cannot support herself is on Medicare - she recently went to the hospital for an anxiety attack - and thus has a follow up appt at her primary care doc next week (side note :  when he told her in Dec he planned to propose this year - within a week she had a heart attack - and we have seriously been discussing the FI moving closer to me  and my son - if not in together completely yet and she has a panic attack at 4AM )
anyways  she has an appt next week - every time she goes it costs her upwards of an 80$ copay - I currently have no insurance - if i go see my doctor - it costs me 80$.  does this sound right ?   shouldn't the doc visit cost be less - not a specialist or anything just her regular doc -

  • Does she have a secondary insurance?

    Sounds like her medicare is not paying her visits 100% and it is her coinsurance.  I'd have her call!

    She has no secondary insurance - this is her main insurance - and getting her to call about anything is like pulling teeth - which means I am the one going to be trying to get it all fixed so she can be a little more self sufficient as far as money goes 
    so we can finally get a place and not be paying half her bills

    (this is a major point of contention with FI right now )

  • I work in a dr office and Medicare pays about 80% of visits.  If no 2nd yes she will have bills.  The reason you pay the same is most drs go and insurace go off what the medicare allowable is (what you can bill medicare)  This prob does not make any sence and I am trying to explain but all insurances suck anymore!
