If you are already on Medicare or if you are about to become eligible for Medicare in the near future, you more than likely feel a little overwhelmed in regards to picking plans which will fit your own personal needs. There are still likely to be out of pocket expenses which you might not want to have to pay for, when it comes to the Original Medicare which includes Parts A and B. This is where the supplemental plans come into play. In this article 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.
Each of the supplement plans is offered by private insurance companies throughout the country along with the prices of the plans will vary from one insurer to another. However, the benefits that you reap from each plan will undoubtedly be standardized according to each letter of the plans which are offered. What this means that say for instance you choose the coverage that the plan offers will be exactly the same, Plan F no matter what insurance company you decide to deal with.
Desert Hot Springs, CA Medicare Supplement Plan F
Plan F tends to be a popular pick for most people because it offers a lot more coverage than other supplement plans. It is important to note there are two different types. There is another one that's the same benefits as the standard but comes with a higher deductible and the standard Plan F. This means if you were to choose the deductible that is higher that you would need to first pay a certain amount of money prior to the coverage would even begin.

Benefits that are included with the Plan F include every one of 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 each of the out of pocket costs until you've reached a certain amount the original Medicare does not cover. In 2022, 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's going to be the most expensive plan, however, in case you shop around since Plan F does offer the largest amount of benefits you can locate a plan that is less expensive.
Desert Hot Springs Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan G
This particular Medigap plan is one that offers a lot of the same benefits as that of Plan F. There is one exception, however, it will not cover the deductible for Medicare Plan B. What this means is that whenever you go with Plan G you are going to need to pay the yearly standard Part B deductible. That deductible in 2022 was $233. Therefore, should you not mind paying for this deductible amount, Plan G could be a good option to consider when it comes to supplemental plans.

You should know they are the only two Medigap plans that do this and that all excess charges that could accrue with Part B Medicare are covered by both of these plans. These excess costs will be the actual difference between exactly what a doctor charges due to their medical service and what the Medicare amount that is approved is. These professionals are considered to be non-participating providers and they are allowed to actually charge 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 anticipated to pay out of their own pocket.
Medicare Supplement Plan N
This is a supplemental plan that offers a whole lot of the same benefits but there really are a few exceptions which you should be aware of when looking at this particular plan which will be 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'd be responsible for paying for all these differences. It has another difference, although it will pay 100% of the coinsurance of Medicare Part B most of the time as it pertains to Plan N, there may be exceptions. Those differences are you can really be required to pay a copay of up to $50 for some ER visits which don't end up with admission and that you sometimes need to pay just as much as $20 for some office calls.
