Medicare Safety Nets have thresholds. You’ll reach the thresholds when you spend certain amounts in the gap and out-of-pocket costs.
Once you’ve reached the thresholds, you’ll start getting higher Medicare benefits. This means you’ll get more money back from Medicare for certain Medicare services.
Only verified payments count toward the threshold. Verified payments are when you pay for your health professional service in full before you make a claim from Medicare. If you have unverified payments, you’ll need to pay them before they count toward your threshold.
