    In order to qualify for Medicare Part B you must be eligible and covered under Medicare Part A. If you do not accept Medicare Part B and pay the premium you will be responsible for all of your outpatient charges. This includes doctor visits, lab, imaging, infusion therapy, outpatient surgery, etc.

    Medicare Part B is a necessity if Medicare is going to be your primary insurance. Part B covers doctor and outpatient visits for the diagnosis and treatment of your health conditions. These are outpatient services received at a doctor’s office, hospital, clinic, or other health facility. There is an annual deductible of $166 for medical services under Part B and after the deductible is met Medicare covers 80% of those expenses. If you have a Medicare Supplement is will pay the 20% Medicare leaves off.
