Copayment: a flat fee paid by an insured person to supplement insurance costs every time he or she receives a medical service.

The best way to prevent being a victim of health fraud is simple, BE SKEPTICAL. You can’t trust just one opinion, you can’t trust what you see in advertisements or what you see in testimonials. Don’t be afraid to ask questions.
