What is a CoPay?

A copay is a portion of the exam fee, determined by a patient’s insurance coverage, as the patient’s responsibility and must be paid before the exam begins.  Though a patient may pay a percentage of their salary for health benefits, this fee is required by the insurance company to be paid by the patient to the doctor, before any other benefits will be paid out.  By law copays cannot be waived.
