If you are already on Medicare or if you're planning to become eligible for Medicare you feel a little overwhelmed when it comes to picking plans that are going to fit your own personal needs. There are still going to be out of pocket expenses which you may not want to need 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. The ones we are going to be going over here are N, G, and plans F.
Each one of the supplement plans is offered by private insurance companies all over the country as well as the prices of these plans will vary from one insurer to another. However, the benefits that you reap from each plan will soon be standardized according to each letter of the plans which are offered. What this means that say for instance you choose Plan F, the coverage the plan offers will be the same no matter what insurance company you opt to deal with.
Lake Elsinore, CA Medicare Supplement Plan F
Plan F tends to be a popular pick for a lot of people because it offers a lot more coverage than other supplement plans. It is important to note that there are two types that are different. There is another one that has 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 pay a certain amount of money prior to the coverage would begin. Call 877-410-1979 for a free quote on Plan F today!
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 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 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.
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 can find a plan that's less expensive.
Lake Elsinore Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan G
This particular Medigap plan is one that offers several of the same benefits as that of Plan F. There's one exception, however, it does not cover the deductible for Medicare Plan B. What this means is that if you go with Plan G you will need to pay the yearly standard Part B deductible. Therefore, if you don't mind paying for this deductible amount, Plan G could be a good option to consider when it comes to supplemental plans with good benefits.

You should know that all excess charges that may accrue with Part B Medicare are covered by both of these plans and they are the only two Medigap plans that do this. These excess costs will be the actual difference between what the approved Medicare amount is and just what a doctor charges because of their medical service. 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 expected to pay out of their own pocket.
Medicare Supplement Plan N
This is a supplemental plan that offers a lot of the same benefits but there really are a couple of exceptions which you need to be aware of when looking at this particular plan which can 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 means is that you'd be responsible for paying for these differences. In regards to Plan N, it's another difference, even though it will pay 100% of the coinsurance of Medicare Part B most of the time, there may be exceptions. Those differences are you can really be required to pay a copay of up to $50 for some ER visits that don't end up with admission and that you need to pay as much as $20 for some office calls.
