Guide to Office Visit Copayments (Copays)

Copay Tips

  • You are typically required to pay your copay to your doctor’s office at the time of your visit
  • Copay are a set dollar amount (e.g. $15 per visit)
  • Deductible may not apply, depending on your health plan design

You will not pay copays for preventive care office visits. Copays are for the office visit only, and do not cover any additional services you might receive during your visit (e.g. lab work or x-rays). Any additional services are subject to your deductible and coinsurance, until you reach your out-of-pocket limit. Here are examples of office visit types and the applicable copays.
