Not necessarily; a secondary insurance policy or plan might only provide additional benefits up to the maximum that it will pay for a specified service.

A copay is a "set" dollar amount you pay at the time of treatment. For instance, a $35 doctor copay. If you have level one doctor visits, you pay nothing more than the $35 doc…tor copay. Co-insurance is the percentage you share with the insurance company after your deductible has been met. When you have two policies - your primary insurance will pay first (subject to deductible and co-insurance), and then your second policy starts with the balance left from the primary policy (subject to deductible and co-insurance again).. For instance a primary policy with a 5,000 deductible and 80/20 co-insurance of $5000.. Your bill for surgery is 6000. You pay 5,000 + 20% of $5000 (1000) = $6000.00. Your balance of your surgery bill is 0
