You 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 planning to become eligible for Medicare in the near future. There are still planning to be out of pocket expenses that you might not want to need to pay for, in regards to the Original Medicare which includes Parts A and B. This is where the supplemental plans come into play. In this essay we are going to 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 of the supplement plans is offered by private insurance companies around the country as well as the prices of those plans will vary from one insurer to another. The benefits which you reap from each plan will be standardized according to each letter of the plans which are offered. What this ensures that say for instance you choose the coverage that the plan offers will be the same, Plan F no matter what insurance company you opt to deal with.
Santa Ana, CA Medicare Supplement Plan F
Plan F tends to be a popular pick for many people because it actually offers much more coverage than other supplement plans. It is important to note that there are two types that are different. There is another one that's 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 before the coverage would even begin, which you would need to first pay a certain amount of money.

Benefits which might be included with all 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.
If 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. In 2023, 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 it'll be the most expensive plan, however, in the event you shop around you may find a plan that is less expensive.
Santa Ana Medicare Supplement Plan G
This particular Medigap plan is one that offers a lot of the same benefits as that of Plan F. There is one exception, however, it does not cover the deductible for Medicare Plan B. What this means is that should you go with Plan G you are going to need to pay the yearly standard Part B deductible. That deductible in 2023 was $226. So, should you not 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 should know they are the only two Medigap plans that do this and that all excess charges that can accrue with Part B Medicare are covered by both these plans. These excess costs will be the actual difference between exactly what a doctor charges for their medical service and exactly what the approved Medicare amount is. These professionals are considered to be non-participating providers and they may be 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 really a supplemental plan that offers a great deal of the same benefits as the Medigap Plan F but there are a couple of exceptions that 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. As it pertains to Plan N, it has another difference, despite the fact that it will pay most of the time to 100% of the coinsurance of Medicare Part B, there may be exceptions. Those differences are that you sometimes need to pay 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.

What Is The Right Time to Enroll In A Plan?
In the event that you are considering signing up for any one of these Medigap plans you should know the best time to enroll in some of them would be during what's generally known as the a Medicare Supplement Open Enrollment Period. This starts when you are 65 years old or older and you have Part B Medicare. This means that for this insurance for any health reason you can't be turned down during this six month time period and you can not be charged a premium that is higher because of any pre-existing conditions that you might be suffering from.
