    ___________________ is always secondary to a primary insurance.

    Medicaid is a government-funded healthcare program that provides medical coverage to low-income individuals and families. It is considered a secondary insurance because it is designed to fill in the gaps in coverage for those who already have a primary insurance plan. Medicaid typically covers costs that are not paid for by the primary insurance, such as copayments, deductibles, and services not covered by the primary insurance. Therefore, Medicaid is always secondary to a primary insurance.

Medicare Part B is optional, but most people choose to enroll in it to ensure they have coverage for outpatient care.
