You feel a little overwhelmed in regards to picking plans that will fit your own personal needs, if you are on Medicare or if you are about to become eligible for Medicare in the near future. You will find still planning to be out of pocket expenses which you may not want to have 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. 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 plans F, G, and N.
Each one of the supplement plans is offered by private insurance companies throughout the country and the prices of the plans will vary from one insurer to another. However, the benefits which you reap from each 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 opt to deal with.
San Marino, CA Medicare Supplement Plan F
Plan F tends to be a popular pick for many people because it offers much more coverage than other supplement plans. It is important to notice there are two types that are different. There's the standard Plan F and another one that's the same benefits as the standard but comes with a higher deductible. This implies if you were to choose the higher deductible before the coverage would begin that you would need to first pay a certain amount of money.

Benefits which might be included with the Plan F include all 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 that you just want to pick the higher deductible plan then you'll be required to pay for all of the out of pocket costs until you've reached a certain amount, the original Medicare does not cover.
Normally it will be the most expensive plan, however, should you shop around, since Plan F does offer the largest amount of benefits you could find a plan that is less expensive.
San Marino Medicare Supplement 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 means that whenever you go with Plan G you will still need to pay the yearly standard Part B deductible. That deductible in 2022 was $233. So, should you not mind paying for this amount that is deductible, Plan G could be a good option to consider when it comes to supplemental plans.

You should know they are the only two Medigap plans that do this and that all excess charges that will accrue with Part B Medicare are covered by both of these plans. These excess costs would be the actual difference between what a doctor charges due to their 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 just as much as 15% more than what Medicare allows for a certain covered medical service. This extra amount is what the patient would be expected to pay from their own pocket.
Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan N
This can be a supplemental plan that offers a lot of the same benefits as the Medigap Plan F but there are a couple of exceptions which 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 implies is that you would be responsible for paying for these differences. As it pertains to Plan N, it's another difference, even though it does pay 100% of the coinsurance of Medicare Part B most of the time, there can 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 just as much as $20 for some office calls.
