Medicaid copayment and coinsurance - List of service and its copays

For certain Medicaid services, the recipient is responsible for a set copayment or coinsurance that is to be paid directly to the provider

Copayment

A copayment is a predetermined amount of money, specified by Medicaid, that the recipient pays to a provider.

Coinsurance 

A coinsurance is a percent of the Medicaid payment that the recipient pays to provider.

Medicare Crossovers

A dually-eligible Medicare and Medicaid recipient is required to pay Medicaid copayments and coinsurance, unless the recipient is otherwise exempt. The Medicaid copayment and coinsurance applies to services that will be billed first to Medicare and then crossover to Medicaid for payment of the Medicare deductibles and coinsurances.
