Covered outpatient hospital services include:

  • Services in an emergency room or outpatient clinic, including same-day surgery;
  • Laboratory tests billed by the hospital;
  • Mental health care in a partial hospitalization program, if a physician certifies that inpatient treatment would be required without it;
  • X-rays and other radiology services billed by the hospital;
  • Medical supplies such as splints and casts; and
  • Drugs and biologicals that you cannot give yourself.

CoPayment: The amount you need to pay.

You pay 20% of Medicare-approved amounts for the doctor.

You pay a set copayment amount based on each service received.

Medicare Part: The part of Medicare that pays for this service or supply.
