Does Medicare have a copay for doctor’s visits?

A copayment is a fixed sum of money that you must pay in full out of your own pocket for any service. Copays are most often used to refer to doctor visits, specialist appointments, and prescription drug refills.

Under Medicare Part B, you are covered for outpatient services for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of medical conditions. Part B also covers you for mental health services, durable medical equipment, and some medications and vaccines.
