Medicare Medical Insurance (Part B) pays for many of the outpatient services beneficiaries get in hospitals, such as X-rays, stitches, casts, surgeries and emergency room visits. It also pays for partial hospitalization services, in-hospital outpatient departments and community mental health centers.
Beneficiaries will pay a co-payment for these services, in addition to the annual Part B premium. If beneficiaries have a Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policy, Medigap may pay these co-payments or deductibles.
