You more than likely feel a little overwhelmed as it pertains to picking plans which will fit your own personal needs, if you are already on Medicare or if you are about to become eligible for Medicare in the near future. You will find still likely 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. That is where the supplemental plans come into play. In this 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 all over the country as well as the prices of the plans will vary from one insurer to another. However, the benefits which you reap from each plan will undoubtedly 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 the same, Plan F no matter what insurance company you choose to deal with.
Los Angeles, CA Medicare Supplement Plan F
Plan F tends to be a very popular pick for a lot of people because it actually offers a lot more coverage than other supplement plans. It is important to notice that there are two different types. There's 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 higher deductible which you would need to first pay a certain amount of money ahead of the coverage would begin.

Benefits which can be included with all 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.
If you decide that you just want to pick the higher deductible plan then you will be required to pay for all of the out of pocket costs the original Medicare does not cover until you have reached a certain amount. 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 the event you shop around since Plan F does offer the largest amount of benefits you can locate a plan that is less expensive.
Los Angeles 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 doesn't cover the deductible for Medicare Plan B. This implies that if you go with Plan G you will need to pay the yearly standard Part B deductible. That deductible in 2022 was $233. 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 that both of these plans do cover all excess charges that will accrue with Part B Medicare and they are the only two Medigap plans that do this. These excess costs would be the actual difference between what the approved Medicare amount is and exactly what a doctor charges for his or her 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 to get 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 Insurance Plan N
This is really a supplemental plan that offers a whole lot of the same benefits as the Medigap Plan F but there 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 means is that you'll be responsible for paying for these differences. In regards to Plan N, it has another difference, though it will pay most of the time to 100% of the coinsurance of Medicare Part B, there can be exceptions. Those differences are that you sometimes need to pay as much as $20 for some office calls and 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.
