Medigap Plan F, Plan G, Plan N Comparison Chart
The three most popular Medicare Supplement plans are Plan F, Plan G, and Plan N.
We have compiled the best rates in Pennsylvania for the ten largest cities for these three plans.
Generally, if one of these three plans do not fit your needs you should speak with a Senior Benefits Services expert about Medicare Advantage.
Keep in mind that Medicare Supplement Plan F will be going away in January 2020 which could cause the rates for this plan to increase more rapidly than Plan G and Plan N.
The only difference is that with Plan F both Medicare Part A and Part B’s premiums are paid by your Plan F premium.
With Plan G, in addition to paying the premium, you would also pay your Medicare Part B premium.
If you choose Medicare Supplement Plan N, the premium is the lowest of the three because there is less coverage.
With Plan N, you will have to pay your Medicare Part B deductible just like Medigap Plan G.
However, Plan N does not cover doctor’s excess charges and requires a co-payment or co-insurance payment for doctor’s and hospital visits.
