You more than likely feel a little overwhelmed as it pertains to picking plans that are going to fit your own personal needs, if you're already on Medicare or if you're about to become eligible for Medicare in the near future. There are still planning to be out of pocket expenses which you may not want to need to pay for in regards to the Original Medicare which includes Parts A and B. That is where the supplemental plans come into play. The ones we are going to be going over here are plans F, G, and N.
All the supplement plans is offered by private insurance companies around the country along with the prices of the plans will vary from one insurer to another. However, the benefits which you reap from every plan will be standardized according to each letter of the plans which are offered. What this implies that say for instance you choose the coverage the plan offers will be exactly the same, Plan F no matter what insurance company you choose to deal with.
Santa Monica, CA Medicare Supplement Plan F
Plan F tends to be a very popular pick for many people because it offers a lot more coverage than other supplement plans. It's important to note there are two different types. There is the standard Plan F and another one that has the same benefits as the standard but comes with a much higher deductible. This implies if you were to choose the deductible that is higher that you would need to first pay a certain amount of money ahead of the coverage would begin.

Benefits which might be included with all the Plan F include every one 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 you'll be required to pay for all the out of pocket costs until you've reached a certain amount, that the original Medicare does not cover.
Since Plan F does offer the largest amount of benefits it's going to be the most expensive plan, however, should you shop around you could find a plan that's less expensive.
Santa Monica Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan G
This particular Medigap plan is one that offers most of the same benefits as that of Plan F. 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'll need to pay the yearly standard Part B deductible. That deductible in 2022 was $233. Therefore, if you don't mind paying for this deductible amount, Plan G could be a good option to consider when it comes with good benefits to supplemental plans. For a free quote on Plan G call us directly at 877-410-1979 today!
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 would be the actual difference between exactly what the Medicare amount that is approved is and exactly what a doctor actually charges for his or her medical service. These professionals are considered to be non-participating providers and they are allowed to 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 Plan N
This is a supplemental plan that offers a great deal of the same benefits but there really are a couple of exceptions which you need to be aware of when looking at this particular plan that's 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 has another difference, despite the fact that it does pay 100% of the coinsurance of Medicare Part B most of the time, there may 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 to the hospital and that you sometimes need to pay just as much as $20 for some office calls.

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