If you're on Medicare or if you are about to become eligible for Medicare in the near future, you feel a little overwhelmed in regards to picking plans that will fit your own personal needs. There are still going to be out of pocket expenses that you might not want to need to pay for in regards to the Original Medicare which includes Parts A and B. That is where the supplemental plans come into play. In this specific article we'll be giving you an overview of three of the different supplement plans that are available, these plans are also called Medigap plans. The ones we'll be going over here are G plans F, and N.
Each one of the supplement plans is offered by private insurance companies throughout the country and the prices of these plans will vary from one insurer to another. However, the benefits which you reap from every plan will be standardized according to every letter of the plans that 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 choose to deal with.
Grass Valley, CA Medicare Supplement Plan F
Plan F tends to be a very popular pick for most people because it offers a lot more coverage than other supplement plans. It's important to note there are two different types. There is the standard Plan F and another one that has the same benefits as the standard but comes with a higher deductible. This implies if you were to choose the deductible that is higher that you simply would need to pay a certain amount of money before the coverage would even begin.

Benefits that are included with the Plan F include most 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.
Should you decide that you want to pick the higher deductible plan you will be required to pay for all the out of pocket costs the original Medicare does not cover until you've reached a certain amount.
Normally it will be the most expensive plan, however, if you shop around since Plan F does offer the largest amount of benefits you could locate a plan that's less expensive.
Grass Valley Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan G
This particular Medigap plan is one that offers a lot of the same benefits. There's one exception, however, it will not cover the deductible for Medicare Plan B. This means that if you go with Plan G you'll still need to pay the yearly standard Part B deductible. That deductible in 2022 was $233. Therefore, if you don't mind paying for this deductible amount, Plan G could be a good option when it comes to supplemental plans with good benefits to consider.

You need to know they are the only two Medigap plans that do this and that both these plans do cover all excess charges that can accrue with Part B Medicare. These excess costs are the actual difference between exactly what a doctor actually charges for his or her medical service and exactly what the approved Medicare amount is. These professionals are considered to be non-participating providers and they may be 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 from their own pocket.
Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan N
This is really a supplemental plan that offers a whole lot of the same benefits but there really are a few exceptions that you need to be aware of when looking at this particular plan which 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, even though 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 that you need to pay as much as $20 for some office calls and you also can be required to pay a copay of up to $50 for some ER visits that don't end up with admission.
