You more than likely feel a little overwhelmed as it pertains to picking plans which are going to fit your own personal needs, if you're on Medicare or if you are planning to become eligible for Medicare in the near future. There are still going to be out of pocket expenses which you may not want to need to pay for, as it pertains to the Original Medicare which includes Parts A and B. That is where the supplemental plans come into play. In this essay we are going to be giving you an overview of three of the different supplement plans which are available, these plans are also called Medigap plans. The ones we are going to be going over here are G plans F, and N.
All the supplement plans is offered by private insurance companies all around the country along with the prices of the plans will vary from one insurer to another. However, the benefits which you reap from every plan will undoubtedly be standardized according to every letter of the plans which might be offered. What this implies that say for instance you choose the coverage the plan offers will be exactly the same, Plan F no matter what insurance company you decide to deal with.
Auburn, CA Medicare Supplement Plan F
Plan F tends to be a very popular pick for most people because it offers much more coverage than other supplement plans. It is important to notice there are two different types. There is another one that has the same benefits as the standard but comes with a much higher deductible and the standard Plan F. This means if you were to choose the higher deductible that you would need to first pay a certain amount of money prior to the coverage would even begin.

Benefits which are included with all the Plan F include all the following:
- Part A Medicare coinsurance along with hospital costs along with an additional year of coverage after your Medicare benefits have been used up.
- Covers the coinsurance or copayment of hospice care that Part A doesn’t cover.
- It covers the Part A deductible.
- Pays for the deductible for Part B.
- If there are any Medicare Part B extra charges this plan will cover these charges.
- If you require blood, this plan will cover the first three pints of blood needed.
- If you are in a skilled nursing facility it will cover the coinsurance amounts that might be required.
- Will cover any emergency coverage that might be needed during foreign traveling.
If you decide which you want to pick the higher deductible plan you will be required to pay for all the out of pocket costs until you've reached a certain amount, the original Medicare doesn't cover. In 2023, that amount was $2,490 before this plan kicked in. But, by choosing the higher deductible plan you could end up paying a much lower monthly amount than with the standard Medigap Plan F.
Normally it'll be the most expensive plan, however, if you shop around, since Plan F does offer the largest amount of benefits you may locate a plan that's less expensive.
Auburn Medicare Supplement Plan G
This particular Medigap plan is one that offers many of the same benefits. There's one exception, however, it doesn't cover the deductible for Medicare Plan B. What this means is that should you go with Plan G you are going to still need to pay the yearly standard Part B deductible. That deductible in 2023 was $226. So, if you don't mind paying for this amount that is deductible, Plan G could be a good option to consider when it comes with good benefits to supplemental plans.

You should know that both these plans do cover all excess charges that may accrue with Part B Medicare and they are the only two Medigap plans that do this. These excess costs are the actual difference between what a doctor actually charges due to their medical service and exactly what the approved Medicare amount is. These professionals are considered to be non-participating providers plus they are allowed to charge just as much as 15% more than what Medicare allows for a certain covered medical service. This extra amount is exactly what the patient would be expected to pay from their own pocket.
Medicare Supplement Plan N
This is really a supplemental plan that offers a lot of the same benefits but there really are a couple of exceptions that you should be aware of when looking at this particular plan that is listed below
- Plan N does not cover the deductible that comes with Part B Medicare.
- It doesn’t cover the extra charges that might come with Part B.
So, what this implies is that you'll be responsible for paying for these differences. It's another difference, though it does pay 100% of the coinsurance of Medicare Part B most of the time when it comes to Plan N, there may be exceptions. Those differences are that you sometimes need to pay just as much as $20 for some office calls and you can really be required to pay a copay of up to $50 for some ER visits which don't end up with admission to the hospital.
