stockfresh_716592_coins_sizeM-300x199Springtime is the most beautiful time of the year because it brings many great things: birds, flowers, and tax returns. So many people need a boost, and the money from the tax return significantly improves morale. In addition, the tax return provides money that a person can use for all kinds of things.

stockfresh_7709431_stressful-bristle-man-with-headache-using-laptop-computer_sizeM-300x200There needs to be more clarity when it comes to medical copayments. Employees often don’t know how their copayment works or what they’re responsible for paying and, consequently, pay more for medical care. That is avoidable if a person knows about copayments and when they apply.


An Easy Interpretation  

A copayment is an amount of money that employee pays each time they receive a medical service or fill a prescription, and it is typically required as part of a health insurance plan. For example, if an individual has been prescribed medication that costs $100, and their copayment is $30, the health insurance would cover the remaining balance of $70. There are some cases where there may also be additional out-of-pocket charges that need to be paid even with insurance coverage, such as deductibles. Individuals need to understand how copayments work.
