Medicare Plan G Benefits
Medicare Supplement Plan G is the most popular plan for people new to Medicare due to its fantastic coverage and few out-of-pocket expenses.
The only expense you have to pay on Plan G is the annual Medicare Part B deductible.
Before Medicare Part B begins paying 80% of your doctor’s bills, you need to pay this deductible once per year. This deductible amount is currently $233 for 2022 and should be close to that amount in 2023.
Medicare Supplement Plan G
- Has No Network – You may visit any doctor or specialist in the United States, provided they accept Medicare
- No referrals needed for a specialist
- No Co-pays
- No coinsurance to pay
- 100% coverage after you pay the annual Part B deductible
Medicare Supplement Plan N
Medicare Supplement Plan N is another plan that people love as it has lower premiums than Plan G, but still provides excellent coverage.
Thousands of people will be switching from Medicare Plan G to Plan N to save money in 2023.
What is Medicare Plan N?
On Medicare Plan N you pay the annual Part B deductible once per year just like on Plan G.
After that is met there are a few out-of-pocket expenses that you might have to pay.
- 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
Aside from a standard Medicare Plan G that’s offered, there is also a high-deductible Medicare Plan G.
On high-deductible Plan G, you need to pay the annual Medicare Part B deductible just as you do with standard Plan G and Plan N.
After this deductible is met, Medicare Part B begins to pay 80% of all doctor’s bills for you. You will then need to pay the remaining 20% until you reach the high-deductible amount ($2490 in 2022).
Once the high-deductible amount is met, HD Plan G pays 100% of what Medicare Part B doesn’t cover. This plan is a great option for people who do not want a Medicare Advantage plan, or for those who do not visit their doctor often but want great coverage in case something happens.
High-deductible Medicare Plan G - Key points
- Has a much higher deductible to pay than standard Plan G
- Still has No Network and can be used nationwide
- Has considerably lower premiums than standard Plan G
