Medicare Supplement insurance plans, also called Medigap plans, provide help with some of the out-of-pocket expenses not paid for by Original Medicare.

When you go to the doctor under Original Medicare, you still have expenses to pay. Medicare Supplement insurance plans work with your Medicare Part A (hospital stays) and Medicare Part B (doctor visits) to help lower the out-of-pocket medical costs that Original Medicare doesn’t cover.

Only applicants first eligible for Medicare before 2020 may purchase Plans C and F. A checkmark indicates the benefit is paid at 100%.

Lower Benefits, Higher Out-of-Pocket (Plans A and B) 

Medicare Supplement Plan A offers just the Basic Benefits while Plan B covers Basic Benefits plus a benefit for the Medicare Part A deductible, which could be one of the largest out-of-pocket expenses if you need to spend time in a hospital. Plans A and B have lower monthly premiums with higher-out-of-pocket costs for things like Skilled Nursing Facility Coinsurance, Part B Excess Charges, and Foreign Travel Emergency Care.

Higher Benefit Level, Higher Premium (Plans C†, F† and G) 

Plans C, F and G offer the most supplemental coverage, paying many of your out-of-pocket costs for Medicare-approved services. Consider these plans if you are willing to pay a higher monthly premium in exchange for more healthcare coverage and lower out-of-pocket costs. †Please note: Only applicants first eligible for Medicare before 2020 may purchase Plans C and F.

Lower Premium, Cost Sharing (Plans K and L)

Plans K and L are cost-sharing plans offering lower monthly premiums because they pay a percentage of the coinsurance instead of the full coinsurance amount. Once the out-of-pocket limit is reached, these plans pay 100% of covered services for the rest of the calendar year.

Co-Pay Structure, Mid-Range Premium (Plan N) 

Plan N covers the Part B coinsurance, but you pay copayments for covered doctor office and emergency room visits in exchange for a mid-range monthly premium. L
