Medicare deductibles are paid annually. Once the individual has paid their deductible, Medicare will cover most, if not all, of the remaining medical costs. Being knowledgeable of your plan’s deductible is important when making decisions and can greatly impact how much you’ll need to pay.
Premiums are paid monthly. They’re the cost required to keep your Medicare plan and can change based on your income. Most people are eligible to receive Part A premium-free.
Coinsurance determines how much you’ll still need to pay after you’ve reached your deductible. It is typical to pay 20% of Part B costs once your deductible has been met.
