As of January 1, 2020, Medigap plans sold to Medicare new entrants may not cover deductible B. As a result, plans C and F will no longer be available to Medicare new entrants on January 1, 2020 or later.
If you already have one of these two plans (or the high deductible version of Plan F), you will be able to keep your plan. If you were eligible for Medicare before January 1, 2020 but have not yet signed up, you can still purchase one of these plans.
For people with existing Plan F coverage: If you ever decide to change carrier for any reason, you will still be able to keep your Plan F coverage. This type of change will be signed, so those considering switching should keep this in mind.
Why does Plan F go away?
On January 1
What is Plan G?  Medicare Parts A and B provide insurance coverage for health-related expenses, but they do not cover all health care costs you may have. While all Medicare supplemental plans help offset these costs, Plan G will now offer the most comprehensive coverage for those who become eligible for Medicare.
What is the difference between Plan F and Plan G?
The key difference between Plan F and Plan G is that Plan G does not cover the deductible for Part B. This is because the federal government wanted each beneficiary to have an interest in their care. The good news: Premiums for Plan G are generally cheaper by more than the deductible $ 250 amount. This means that even if you are responsible for the $ 250 deductible, you can save more than $ 350 in total premiums. (Premium savings will vary depending on operator.)
What does Plan G cover?
If you choose Medicare Supplement Plan G from Erie Family Life you will not incur any out-of-pocket expenses for expenses such as:
- Part A deductible
- Part A hospital co-payments
- Part B co-payments
- Part B Surplus of Physician Fees
- Competent Health Care Coin Insurance
- Foreign Emergency Care
Medicare Supplement Plan G will still be a good option for those who recently qualify for Medicare. Plan G continues to enable you to choose any doctor for your care, including specialists, while eliminating many expenses associated with care. Instead of paying for copies and deductibles, you pay a monthly premium for your Medicare supplemental plan.
