RichDayHealthPlans provides Copay type health plans:
- How does a copay work? Insurance plans usually employ a copay on doctor visits and drugs. A copay means that you get the health care provider's service for a reduced amount. For example, let's say you have a terrible head cold. If you go to see a doctor, you will typically pay a copay of $25 to $50. (The actual visit cost the insurance company roughly $65, but you pay the reduced copay amount.)
- Why do people like copays? People like copays because they can see the doctor for a relatively small amount of money that doesn't upset their budget.
It is NOT necessary to meet your deductible before the copays can be utilized. (This is a frequently asked question.)
- How does a drug copay work? Drug copays a somewhat different from doctor visit copays. Drug copays usually have an annual deductible that must be met before you get to pay the smaller copay amount. For example, a typical plan will charge a copay of $15 for a generic drug and $35 for a brand-name drug after a $200 annual deductible. That means that you don't get to pay the smaller copay amounts until AFTER you have accumulated $200 in drug costs. If you are taking a drug for high blood pressure and perhaps another drug for high cholesterol, those two drugs, if not generic, could run approximately $200 per month. Therefore, the you will be responsible for the first month and the other eleven months will be covered 100% by the insurance company after your copay.
