If you're already on Medicare or if you are about to become eligible for Medicare you feel a little overwhelmed as it pertains to picking plans that are going to fit your own personal needs. There are still planning to be out of pocket expenses that you may not want to need to pay for, as it pertains to the Original Medicare which includes Parts A and B. This is where the supplemental plans come into play. The ones we are going to be going over here are plans F, G, and N.
Private insurance companies offer each of the supplement plans all around the country and the prices of those plans will vary from one insurer to another. However, the benefits that you reap from every plan will be standardized according to every letter of the plans which are offered. What this means that say for instance you choose Plan F, the coverage that the plan offers will be the same no matter what insurance company you choose to deal with.
Kentfield, CA Medicare Supplement Plan F
Plan F tends to be a popular pick for a lot of people because it offers much more coverage than other supplement plans. It's important to notice there are two types that are different. 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 implies if you were to choose the higher deductible ahead of the coverage would even begin which you would need to first pay a certain amount of money. Call 877-410-1979 for a free quote on Plan F today!
Benefits which might be included with all the Plan F include all 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'll 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 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 will be the most expensive plan, however, if you shop around since Plan F does offer the largest amount of benefits you can find a plan that is less expensive.
Kentfield Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan G
This particular Medigap plan is one that offers several of the same benefits as that of Plan F. There is 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 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 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 both of these plans do cover all excess charges that can accrue with Part B Medicare. These excess costs will be the actual difference between exactly what the approved Medicare amount is and just what a doctor actually charges for his or her medical service. These professionals are considered to be non-participating providers and 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 Insurance Plan N
This really is a supplemental plan that offers a lot of the same benefits as the Medigap Plan F but there are a few exceptions which you ought to 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 would be responsible for paying for these differences. In regards to Plan N, it's another difference, despite the fact that it does pay most of the time to 100% of the coinsurance of Medicare Part B, there can be exceptions. Those differences are 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 just as much as $20 for some office calls.
