1. A deductible is the amount a person must pay for health care or prescriptions




That's correct. A is the correct answer.

The deductible is the amount that a person must pay for health care or prescriptions BEFORE Original Medicare, the person's prescription drug plan, or other insurance begins to pay. For example, in Original Medicare, the person with Medicare pays a new deductible for each benefit period for Part A and each year for Part B. These amounts can change every year.
