For 2017, many Medigap subscribers are going to be looking for a plan that suits them. There are multiple plans to choose from, but the one that can offer more coverage than the rest is Medigap Plan F 2017.
Out of all the supplement Medigap plans available Medigap Plan F is the only one offering full coverage. What does that mean exactly? It means that all supplemental expenses are covered under this plan. It is important to note that other medical expenses still remain, but for most people, these will be few.
Let’s look at what that plan is covering for those who subscribe. For starters, it comes with 365 days of coverage for Medicare Part A coinsurance. That coverage includes the entire lifetime of the plan, so it is possible that this coverage will run out at some point.
Further coverage includes all Medicare Part A deductibles and co-payments as well as Part B’s deductibles and co-payments. It even includes full coverage for nursing care, which is something Medicare subscribers may be looking at in the near future.
Furthermore, Plan F covers all of its subscribers for some more blood each year. This is another three pints on top of Medicare basic’s coverage, and it renews every year. All of Medicare Part B’s excess charges are covered too. These may be uncommon, but they may also be costly. It is the kind of charge that is often unexpected, and subscribers are glad to have that coverage when it proves necessary.
The last piece of coverage is for emergency care administered in foreign countries. This coverage is only for a maximum of 80% of the costs, and it kicks in after a deductible is paid.
The coverage includes in Medigap Plan F for 2017 is incredible. You won’t find another supplemental plan that has as much to offer, but then again, you may not need quite all that coverage. While Plan F is designed for people who have extensive medical coverage needs, Plan G is designed for the same group. This is a slightly lower-coverage plan, and its costs are lower as well.
The plans differ only in that Plan G will not cover its subscribers for a Medicare Part B deductible. That’s not much difference for plans that can be quite far apart when it comes to pricing. Plan F is often considerably more expensive. That is why so many people could actually benefit from switching plans if they have Plan F.
Plan G is simply a better deal for a great number of Medicare subscribers. It may not have quite as much coverage, but that really isn’t necessary when its rates are so much lower. Medigap Plan F for 2017 can still be a plan that serves as a good fit for some subscribers, but those subscribers need to be aware of all their options and look at what is available. They just may find that Plan G costs less in the long run.
