What is the Medicare Safety Net?


Patients who see a doctor often or who have had tests frequently, may have high medical costs.  The Medicare Safety Net is a scheme to assist with these high medical costs.

All Medicare card holders are eligible for the Safety Net after a certain threshold.  Once qualified, Medicare may cover almost 90% of the paid fee.
