If you're already on Medicare or if you are planning to become eligible for Medicare you more than likely feel a little overwhelmed when it comes to picking plans which are going to fit your own personal needs. You will find still planning to be out of pocket expenses that you may not want to need to pay for, as it pertains to the Original Medicare which includes Parts A and B. This can be 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 which are available, these plans are also called Medigap plans. The ones we are going to be going over here are N, G, and plans F.
Private insurance companies offer all the supplement plans throughout the country and also the prices of these plans will vary from one insurer to another. The benefits which you reap from every plan will be standardized according to each letter of the plans that are offered. What this ensures that say for instance you choose the coverage the plan offers will be exactly the same, Plan F no matter what insurance company you opt to deal with.
Strawberry, CA Medicare Supplement Plan F
Plan F tends to be a popular pick for a lot of people because it actually offers a lot more coverage than other supplement plans. It is important to note there are two types that are different. There's 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 that you simply would need to first pay a certain amount of money.

Benefits which might be included with the Plan F include all 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.
Should you decide that you simply want to pick the higher deductible plan you'll be required to pay for all the out of pocket costs until you have reached a certain amount that the original Medicare doesn't 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 may find a plan that's less expensive.
Strawberry Medicare Supplement Insurance 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. What this means is that if you go with Plan G you may need to pay the yearly standard Part B deductible. That deductible in 2022 was $233. So, if you don't mind paying for this amount that is deductible, Plan G could be a good option when it comes to supplemental plans with good benefits to consider.

You need to know they're the only two Medigap plans that do this and that all excess charges that could accrue with Part B Medicare are covered by both these plans. These excess costs are the actual difference between exactly what a doctor actually charges for their medical service and exactly what the Medicare amount that is approved is. These professionals are considered to be non-participating providers and they are allowed to charge just 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 really is a supplemental plan that offers a great deal of the same benefits as the Medigap Plan F but there are a couple of exceptions which you need to be aware of when looking at this particular plan which 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'd be responsible for paying for all these differences. It's another difference, even though it does pay 100% of the coinsurance of Medicare Part B most of the time in regards to Plan N, there can be exceptions. Those differences are you're able to be required to pay a copay of up to $50 for some ER visits which don't end up with admission and that you sometimes need to pay as much as $20 for some office calls.
