What this means is that as soon as your copayments and coinsurance for doctor visits and hospital care reaches $4,500, you will no longer pay copayment or coinsurance for the remainder of the year. This is your guarantee that a critical illness or serious accident will protect you from financial liability. It's just as important as the premiums and the co-payments.When comparing Medicare Advantage plans with traditional Medicare, don't forget that you pay about twenty percent of all covered expenses, but there's no limit. That means you have a lot of risk unless you purchase a Medicare supplement policy to cover the gap.
