Medicare Supplement Plan N Insurance (Medigap Plan N)
Original Medicare coverage only covers about 80% all of your healthcare needs. Medicare Supplement Plan N is one of several Medigap plan options that help to fill the gaps in Medicare coverage (that 20% not covered). Plan N is becoming a popular Medicare Supplement plan choice with our clients.
What does Medicare Supplement Plan N Cover?
It has similar benefits to other Medigap Plans G and N. You are responsible for copayments up to $20 when you visit the doctor’s office (or up to $50 for emergency room visits). Plan N also does not cover Part B excess charges, which is the additional amount a doctor may charge for services above what Medicare covers. Plan N, as with Plan G, will not cover Part B cost until the Part B annual deductible is met.
Medicare Plan N vs. The Other Plans
To see how Medicare Plan N 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 N comparison, you will notice that Plan G is the most similar in terms of the level of coverage available. The only difference is, with Plan G there are no coinsurances for office and emergency room visits. It is also comparable to less popular plans K and which only pay 50% and 75%, respectively. Consequently, Medigap Plan N costs about 25% less than other plans such as Plan G or Plan F.
