Should you decide that you just want to pick the higher deductible plan then you will be required to pay for each of the out of pocket costs until you've reached a certain amount, the original Medicare does not 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, in case you shop around, since Plan F does offer the largest amount of benefits you can locate a plan that's less expensive.

This particular Medigap plan is one that offers many of the same benefits as that of Plan F. There is one exception, however, it will not cover the deductible for Medicare Plan B. This means that should you go with Plan G you'll still need to pay the yearly standard Part B deductible.

These excess costs would be the actual difference between just what a doctor actually charges for his or her medical service and what the approved Medicare amount is. 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 from their own pocket.
Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan N
This is a supplemental plan that offers a whole lot of the same benefits but there are a few exceptions that you ought 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 would be responsible for paying for all these differences. It has another difference, although it will pay 100% of the coinsurance of Medicare Part B most of the time, as it pertains to Plan N, there can be exceptions. Those differences are you also 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 sometimes need to pay as much as $20 for some office calls.
