If you are already on Medicare or if you are planning to become eligible for Medicare in the near future, you more than likely feel a little overwhelmed in regards to picking plans which will fit your own personal needs. There are still planning to be out of pocket expenses which you may not want to have 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.
Private insurance companies offer each one of the supplement plans around the country and also the prices of the plans will vary from one insurer to another. However, the benefits which you reap from each plan will undoubtedly 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 exactly the same, Plan F no matter what insurance company you decide to deal with.
Vincent, CA Medicare Supplement Plan F
Plan F tends to be a very popular pick for a lot of people because it offers much more coverage than other supplement plans. It's important to note that there are two types that are different. There's the standard Plan F and another one that has the same benefits as the standard but comes with a higher deductible. This means if you were to choose the deductible that is higher that you would need to pay a certain amount of money before the coverage would even begin. Call 877-410-1979 for a free quote on Plan F today!
Benefits which can 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.
If you decide that you simply want to pick the higher deductible plan then you will be required to pay for each of the out of pocket costs until you have reached a certain amount, that the original Medicare doesn't cover. In 2022, 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, normally it is going to be the most expensive plan, however, in case you shop around you may find a plan that's less expensive.
Vincent Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan G
This particular Medigap plan is one that offers many of the same benefits. There's one exception, however, it will not cover the deductible for Medicare Plan B. What this means is that whenever you go with Plan G you may need to pay the yearly standard Part B deductible. That deductible in 2022 was $233. Therefore, 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 need to know that all excess charges that can accrue with Part B Medicare are covered by both of these plans and they are the only two Medigap plans that do this. These excess costs would be the actual difference between exactly what a doctor actually charges for his or her medical service and exactly what the Medicare amount that is approved 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 what the patient would be anticipated to pay out of their own pocket.
Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan N
This is a supplemental plan that offers a whole 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 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 would be responsible for paying for these differences. It's another difference, even though it does pay 100% of the coinsurance of Medicare Part B most of the time as it pertains to Plan N, there can be exceptions. Those differences are that you need to pay just as much as $20 for some office calls and also you can be required to pay a copay of up to $50 for some ER visits that don't end up with admission.
