What Does Medigap

Plan G Cover?

Like all Medicare Supplement plans, Plan G is federally standardized, meaning every Plan G policy includes identical coverage, regardless of insurance company. With Medicare Supplement Plan G you'll have almost no out-of-pocket medical expenses. Plan F is the most comprehensive Medigap plan, but Plan G is a close second. Plan G coverage is identical to Plan F with one exception: with Plan G you are responsible for the Medicare Part B deductible of $203 (up from $185 in 2019).

Plan G covers:

  • Hospitalization: Part A coinsurance plus coverage for 365 additional days after Medicare benefits end.

  • Medical Expenses: after Part B deductible, plan pays remaining balance of Medicare-approved amounts (generally 20% after Medicare pays 80%). 

  • Blood: First 3 pints of blood each year.

  • Hospice: Part A coinsurance.

  • Skilled Nursing Facility Care: up to 100 days of skilled nursing facility care.

  • Part B Excess Charges: 100% of Part B excess charges.

  • Foreign Travel Medical Services: after a $250 deductible during the first 60 days, Plan G pays 80% of the remainder of charges up to a lifetime maximum of $50,000.

Should You Choose Medigap Plan G?

Medicare Supplement Plan G is our most popular Medigap plan. Like Plan F, Plan G offers the security of knowing that regardless of your health, you'll have nearly all of your medical expenses covered by the plan. The only difference is that Plan G kicks in after your $203 Part B deductible is met. 

There are a few reasons you might choose Plan G over Plan F:

  • Lower premiums. Plan G has lower premiums than Plan F. If the annual premium savings with Plan G exceeds the $203 deductible covered by Plan F, then financially it makes sense to choose Plan G.

  • Price stability. Plan F will be eliminated for newly eligible enrollees in 2020. Those already enrolled in Part F will be able to keep their plans, however, most predict that once Plan F is eliminated, its premium rates will increase more than other plans.
