Medicare Supplements

Medicare Supplement Plans, also known as Medigap, help pay for out-of-pocket costs not covered by Original Medicare (Part A and B). These out-of-pocket costs include copayments, coinsurance, deductibles, hospital costs, skilled nursing facility costs, and more. Some Medigap plans even include coverage for foreign travel emergency care. 

Medigap Plans

There are ten Medigap plans: A, B, C, D, F, G, K, L, M, and N. Each plan covers a different percentage of out-of-pocket costs. Both Plan C and F, however, are not available to anyone who did not become eligible for Medicare before January 1, 2020. 

Because Plan F offers the most comprehensive coverage but has limited enrollment, Plan G is now the most comprehensive plan. The only difference is that Plan G does not cover the Part B deductible like Plan F.

Medigap Open Enrollment

You can enroll in a supplement plan during the Medigap Open Enrollment Period. This period is a one-time enrollment period that begins as soon as your Part B coverage becomes effective. You will have six months to enroll in a Medicare Supplement Plan with the advantages of not being turned down or charged extra because of health conditions.

However, if you miss this period, insurance companies can refuse to insure you and may undergo medical underwriting.
