When I turn 65, I will have Medicare as my primary health and BCBS as my secondary plan. If I use a doctor that does not participate in my BCBS plan, but takes medicare, how much of a percentage will I have to pay the doctor who only participates in medicare?

Depends on what the doc bills you. You are responsible for the 20% balance.

I thought when you have BlueCross Blue Shield, as secondary carrier, and Medicare Part A & B, as primary carrier, there is 100% coverage. Explain.
