When you visit the doctor you will have to pay $15.00 out of your own pocket. Insurance should pay the rest. Co-pays usually don't apply to lab tests, imaging, surgery, etc. In that case there will be a agreed upon fee between the doctor/lab/imaging center and the insurance company. Then it will depend on what percentage your insurance company pays. Say you need an x-ray of your leg. Imaging center charges $200.00. Your insurance agrees to pay $160.00 for these types of procedures. You will have to pay $40.00. There's also deductibles and max out of pocket to worry about also. Some insurance plans have high deductibles which means you have to pay everything up to the deductible. Deductibles usually don't apply to office visits. Hope this clears up some of the confusion. If you're not used to dealing with insurance it can be a little confusing.
