- 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 that 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, that the original Medicare doesn't cover.
Since Plan F does offer the largest amount of benefits, normally it's going to be the most expensive plan, however, should you shop around you may find a plan that is less expensive.
Irvine Medicare Supplement Plan G
This particular Medigap plan is one that offers a lot of the same benefits as that of Plan F. There's one exception, however, it doesn't cover the deductible for Medicare Plan B. This means that whenever you go with Plan G you are going to still need to pay the yearly standard Part B deductible. Therefore, 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 need to know they're the only two Medigap plans that do this and that all excess charges that will accrue with Part B Medicare are covered by both these plans. These excess costs would be the actual difference between exactly what the Medicare amount that is approved is and what a doctor charges because of their medical service. These professionals are considered to be non-participating providers and they may be allowed to charge as much as 15% more than what Medicare allows to get a certain covered medical service. This extra amount is what the patient would be expected to pay from their own pocket.
Medicare Supplement Plan N
This can be a supplemental plan that offers a lot of the same benefits as the Medigap Plan F but there are a few exceptions that you ought to be aware of when looking at this particular plan that's 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 means is that you'd be responsible for paying for all these differences. It's another difference, though it will pay 100% of the coinsurance of Medicare Part B most of the time when it comes to Plan N, there can be exceptions. Those differences are also you can be required to pay a copay of up to $50 for some ER visits which don't end up with admission to the hospital and that you need to pay as much as $20 for some office calls.
