Medicare Supplement Plan N - 2024
Medicare Supplement Plan N is also one of the top Medicare Supplement plans for 2024. It has lower premiums than Plan G, as well as lower annual rate increases.
Unlike Medigap Plan G, on Plan N there are a few extra out-of-pocket expenses that you might have to pay when using the coverage.
Plan N Medicare Coverage
Medicare Plan N is very similar to Plan G in that you still pay the annual Part B deductible prior to coverage beginning.
However, with Medicare Plan N once this deductible is paid you might have a small co-pay per doctor’s visit after that. The co-pay is never more than $20 per visit, and for telehealth there is no co-pay.
Medicare Plan N in 2024
- After you meet the annual Part B deductible, Medicare pays 80% of your doctor’s bills
- Then Medigap Plan N pays the additional 20%
- A small co-pay of $20 may be required once that deductible is met. Telehealth visits do not apply.
- If you visit the emergency room and you are not admitted, a $50 co-pay will be required
- Medicare Part B excess charges are not covered on Plan N (These are rare, and not even applicable to CT, MN, OH, PA, RI, VT, MA, or NY)

High-deductible Medicare Plan G
Also available in 2024 is a high-deductible version of Medicare Plan G.
High-deductible Medicare Plan G is a great plan for those who are very healthy and don’t mind a deductible of $2700 per year. In reality, Medicare Part B still pays 80% of your bills on this plan, however you will need to pay the additional 20% until you reach the $2700.
At that point, all of your bills are paid 100% for the rest of the year.
The deductible amount for High-deductible Plan G in 2023 is $2700, and will likely go up in 2024. Check back to our website often for updates as Medicare typically releases these numbers sometime in the fall.
Medicare Plan G does not pay any of your bills until your medical bills reach this amount, however Medicare Part B does pay 80% after you pay the annual Part B deductible.
At that point, you’re required to continue to pay 80% of your medical bills until the high deductible is met.
High-deductible Medicare Plan G in 2024:
- Has a much higher deductible to pay than standard Plan G
- Still has No Network and can be used nationwide

Medicare Supplement Plans in 2024 - Enrollment
Anyone new to Medicare may enroll in a Medigap plan at the same time their Medicare Part B begins, and up to 3-6 months prior depending on the company.
There is a 6-month Medigap Open enrollment period which allows you to choose and enroll in any Medicare supplement plan with no medical questions asked.
If you miss this period, you may still apply for a Medicare supplement plan, however, you will have to answer the medical questions on the application.
If you wish to apply for a different Medicare Supplement plan you may do so at any time during the year. The Fall annual Medicare enrollment period does not apply to those wishing to change supplement plans, only their Medicare Part D prescription drug plan.
