- It covers the Part A deductible.
- Pays for the deductible for Part B.

If you decide which you want to pick the higher deductible plan you will be required to pay for all of the out of pocket costs until you have reached a certain amount, that the original Medicare doesn't cover.
Since Plan F does offer the largest amount of benefits, normally it'll be the most expensive plan, however, if you shop around you could find a plan that is less expensive.
Pacifica Medicare Supplement Plan G
This particular Medigap plan is one that offers most of the same benefits. There's one exception, however, it doesn't cover the deductible for Medicare Plan B.

So, if you don't mind paying for this amount that is deductible, Plan G could be a good option to consider when it comes to supplemental plans.

You need to know that all excess charges that will accrue with Part B Medicare are covered by both these plans and they're the only two Medigap plans that do this. These excess costs will be the actual difference between just what a doctor charges because of their medical service and what the approved Medicare amount is. 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 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 really are a couple of exceptions that you ought to be aware of when looking at this particular plan that 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. It has another difference, despite the fact that it does 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 that you sometimes need to pay just as much as $20 for some office calls and you can really be required to pay a copay of up to $50 for some ER visits which don't end up with admission.
