2023 Medicare Co-pays

With Original Medicare, there are co-pays that must be satisfied prior to secondary insurance picking up.

You are responsible for the Medicare Part A co-pay after you have met the Part A hospital deductible ($1,600 in 2023). Remember, your deductible covers the first 60 days of your inpatient stay. If you remain in the hospital after that, you are responsible for the following:

Days 61-90: $400 per day

Days 91-150: (lifetime reserve days): $800 per day

There is no co-pay for Medicare Part B. Instead, there is a co-insurance of 20%.

2023 Medicare Co-Insurance

There is no co-insurance with Medicare Part A, just the inpatient co-pay after the deductible has been satisfied.

However, you are responsible to pay 20% co-insurance for Medicare Part B services. Some examples include:

  • Office Visits
  • Lab Work
  • Outpatient Surgeries
  • Durable Medical Equipment

Overview of 2023 Medicare Cost

Medicare decreased the Part B premium and deductible for 2023, while raising Part A cost, modestly.

Remember, Original Medicare doesn’t cover 100% of Medical cost, as outlined above. In general, and for most beneficiaries, there are two options to help offset cost.

  1. Enroll in a Medicare Supplement Plan (Medigap Plan). These plans work together with Original Medicare and act as secondary insurance.
  2. “Drop” Original Medicare and enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan (Medicare Part C). These types of plans act as your primary and secondary insurance (Medicare takes a back seat).

Regardless of the play type you choose, you are giving yourself protection from catastrophic medical cost. It’s important to remember that on Original Medicare only, there is no cap on out of pocket cost.

Meet Melissa MacCalla

Medicare is not simple and can be hard, frustrating, and downright confusing for most. I love when I get someone on the phone and I am given the opportunity to explain the difference in plans to them and have Medicare make sense. I enjoy talking to clients year after year, hearing about their families growing or them asking about mine.

-Melissa

Oh my gosh!! I was so confused about the Medicare Supplement process. I am turning 65 soon and am retired and have always had insurance thru my former employer. I didn’t know a thing about going on Medicare and was struggling to sort it all out.

A friend of mine recommended contacting Senior HealthCare Solutions, so I did. Melissa was FANTASTIC!! She was professional, responsive, caring and friendly. She explained the steps I needed to take, gathered my information, helped me choose good plans for MY specific needs and took care of my applications over the phone. 1-2-3, eesy-peesy and I was done!! And it didn’t cost me a DIME!!! WOW!!! I HIGHLY recommend Senior Healthcare Solutions for anyone who’s overwhelmed with making the right choices with Medicare Supplemental Insurance and Rx coverage. It’ll take a load off your mind!
