Medicare Supplement Plan G Insurance (Medigap Plan G)
Original Medicare coverage only covers about 80% all of your healthcare needs. Medicare Supplement Plan G is one of several Medigap plan options that help to fill the gaps in Medicare coverage (that 20% not covered). Plan G is the second most popular Medicare Supplement plan choice with our clients.
What does Medicare Supplement Plan G Cover?
Plan G is almost identical to the Plan F, the only difference is that you assume responsibility for the Medicare Part B deductible. Currently, the Part B deductible is $185. Once meeting the deductible, Plan G provides full coverage. It pays for your hospital deductible, copay’s and coinsurance. It also covers the 20% that Part B doesn’t cover.
Medicare Plan G vs. The Other Plans
To see how Medicare Plan G fits your needs, it helps to do a side-by-side comparison with the other plan options. The Medicare Supplement Plan Comparison chart shows the benefits covered and not covered under each letter. By doing a Medicare Plan G comparison, you will notice that Plan F or N are most similar in terms of the level of coverage available. The only differences are: Plan F covers the part B deductible while Plan G does not. Plan N, like Plan G, does not cover the Part B Medicare deductible. Plan N also does not cover coinsurances of up to $20 per office visit and up to $50 per emergency room visit.
