Medicare Supplement Plan F
Medicare Supplement Plan F
Medicare Supplement Plan F is one of the 10 Medicare Supplement (Medigap) plans offered. It is generally regarded as the most comprehensive of the 10 standardized plans. Standardized means no matter which insurance company you buy from, or where you live, you’ll get the same coverage on the plan. Even though the costs may differ.
Although premiums can be more expensive, Plan F is a popular plan because of its extensive coverage. Due to a law that has been passed, this plan will no longer be available in 2020. MyMedicareQuotes will be able to help you determine whether you should stay with this Medicare Supplemental Insurance. We can also determine if finding another plan is for you. Plan G has been a very popular plan as of late. F and G are the same except G does not cover the Part B deductible.
Medicare Supplement Plan F provides a complete benefits list:
- Inpatient hospital coinsurance and costs up to a year (365 days)
- Coinsurance and co-payment for hospice care
- Part A deductible
- Part B coinsurance and co-payment
- Part B excess charges
- Medicare Part B deductible
- First three pints of blood for a medical procedure
- Coinsurance coverage for skilled nursing facility care
- Foreign travel emergency coverage up to plan limits
If you are already on Plan F when 2020 arrives, you’ll still be able to continue using it. You may want to consider switching to another plan for a couple of reasons. The premium rates may increase because of the decreasing risk pool. Those left on the plan will eventually begin to pay larger premiums. There are many other decent Medicare Supplement Plans to consider. Plan G and Plan N are another two of the most popular options.
