    C. Parent whose date of birth (month and day) falls earlier in the calendar year is the primary plan for dependent.
    Explanation
    The Birthday Rule states that the parent whose date of birth (month and day) falls earlier in the calendar year is the primary plan for the dependent. This means that if both parents have different birthdates, the parent whose birthday occurs earlier in the year will be considered the primary plan for the dependent. This rule helps determine which parent's insurance plan will be the primary one for covering the dependent's medical expenses.

The correct answer states that Medicare covers inpatient hospital services, home health services, hospice care, and limited skilled nursing facility services. This means that Medicare will pay for hospital stays, medical care at home, end-of-life care, and a certain level of care in a skilled nursing facility. This coverage is important for individuals who require these types of services and helps to ensure that they have access to necessary medical care.

This coverage is important for individuals who require ongoing medical care or who need regular access to healthcare services and supplies.

    Correct Answer
    B. Monthly premiums, co-payments, deductibles and balance billing.
    Explanation
    Medicare Part B is a health insurance program in the United States that covers medical services such as doctor visits, outpatient care, and preventive services. Beneficiaries are responsible for paying certain costs, including monthly premiums, co-payments, deductibles, and balance billing. This means that they have to contribute a monthly payment towards their coverage, pay a portion of the cost of each medical service they receive, cover a certain amount of expenses out of pocket before Medicare starts paying, and potentially pay the difference between what the provider charges and what Medicare approves for payment.

  • 5. 

    Part A Beneficiaries are responsible for

    • A.

      Monthly premiums, co-payments, deductibles and balance billing.

    • B.

      Deductibles and co-pays

    Correct Answer
    B. Deductibles and co-pays
    Explanation
    Beneficiaries are responsible for deductibles and co-pays. Deductibles are the amount of money that beneficiaries must pay out of pocket before their insurance coverage begins. Co-pays, on the other hand, are fixed amounts that beneficiaries must pay for each healthcare service or prescription medication. These costs are separate from monthly premiums, which beneficiaries also have to pay. Therefore, beneficiaries are responsible for deductibles and co-pays in addition to monthly premiums, but not for balance billing, which refers to the amount that healthcare providers charge above what insurance covers.

      Pre-Admission Certification (PAC)

    Correct Answer
    B. Out of Network (OON)
    Explanation
    Out of Network (OON) refers to coverage for treatment obtained from a non-participating provider. This means that the healthcare provider is not contracted with the insurer, resulting in higher out of pocket costs for the insured individual. OON coverage typically requires payment of a deductible and higher co-payments and co-insurance compared to treatment from a participating provider. Additionally, the insurer may choose to deny the entire bill for services received from an out of network provider.

    Correct Answer
    C. Deductible
    Explanation
    A deductible is a portion of the covered expenses that an insured individual must pay before insurance coverage with co-insurance goes into effect. It is a standard feature in many insurance policies and is typically based on a calendar year. The deductible amount can vary, but it is usually set at $100, $200, or $500. This means that the insured individual is responsible for paying this amount out of pocket before the insurance coverage kicks in.

In this case, the insurance company agrees to pay 80% of the covered charges, while the individual is responsible for picking up the remaining 20%. This means that the individual will have to pay a percentage of the cost for each covered service, in addition to the deductible.
