Medicare Supplement Plan F Benefits

As an insurance agent, I would like to revise and provide accurate information regarding Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan F. It is essential to understand that Plan F is a standardized policy regulated by the federal government. This implies that the basic benefits offered by Plan F will remain the same regardless of the location or the insurance provider you choose to purchase it from.

  1. Medicare Part A coinsurance and hospital costs (100% coverage)
  2. Medicare Part B coinsurance and copayments (100% coverage)
  3. Medicare Part A deductible (100% coverage)
  4. Medicare Part A deductible (100% coverage)
  5. Medicare Part B excess charges (100% coverage)
  6. Medicare Part A hospice care coinsurance and copayments (100% coverage)
  7. Skilled nursing facility care coinsurance (100% coverage)
  8. First three pints of blood used for a transfusion (100% coverage)
  9. Foreign travel emergency care (100% coverage)

Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan F offers two options: Standard-Deductible Plan F and High-Deductible Plan F. The latter is the only Medigap plan that comes with a high-deductible option.

In 2022, the High-Deductible Plan F comes with an annual deductible of $2,490. This means that you will need to spend $2,490 out of pocket on covered services before the plan coverage kicks in. In exchange for the higher deductible, the average premium for High-Deductible Plan F was just $57.16 per month in 2018 ($686 per year), as noted in the chart above.

It's important to note that while the monthly premiums for High-Deductible Plan F are lower than those for Standard-Deductible Plan F, you will be responsible for paying the higher deductible amount before your coverage begins. You should consider your healthcare needs and budget when deciding which plan option is best for you.

Understanding the Coverage Benefits of Medicare Plans F and G

Medicare plans F and G are similar in that they offer the same basic coverage benefits, which include:

  • Part A coinsurance and hospital costs
  • Part B coinsurance or copayment
  • Blood (first three pints)
  • Part A hospice care coinsurance or copayment
  • Skilled nursing facility care coinsurance
  • Part A deductible
  • Part B excess charges
  • Up to 80% of medical emergency costs during foreign travel

It's worth noting that both plans do not have an out-of-pocket limit, so beneficiaries may still incur some costs for their healthcare expenses. However, these plans can provide significant coverage for those who may have higher healthcare needs or expenses.

While Medicare plans F and G share several similarities in terms of basic coverage benefits, there is one key difference between the two plans. Plan F offers the most comprehensive coverage available, including coverage for Medicare Part B deductible payments, whereas Plan G does not cover this deductible.

Because of this additional coverage, Plan F may come with a higher premium compared to Plan G. However, choosing the high-deductible option for Plan F could help keep your premium costs down. For those enrolled in the Plan F high-deductible option for 2022, Medicare-covered costs must be paid out-of-pocket up to the deductible amount of $2,490 before the Medigap plan begins to cover any expenses.

Overall, understanding the differences between Medicare plans F and G is crucial in selecting the right plan for your healthcare needs and budget.

Which Is Better: Medicare Plan F vs. Plan G? 

There is no definitive answer on which Medicare Supplement Plan is better, as it ultimately depends on your individual needs and budget. However, it is important to note that as of December 31, 2019, Plan F is no longer available for new Medicare enrollees. Here are two things to consider when evaluating whether to keep your existing Medicare Plan F:

  1. If coverage for the Part B deductible is essential to you, it may be best to keep your Medicare Plan F. If you enrolled in Plan F before 2020, you will be grandfathered into the plan, giving you the option to continue with it past 2020.

  2. Although Plan G does not cover the Part B deductible ($203 in 2021), the savings on premiums could offset the cost of the yearly deductible. For example, the average 2021 premium ranges from $167 to $215 for Plan G and $182 to $250 for Plan F for a 65-year-old Florida woman who does not use tobacco. Plan G costs approximately $15-$35 less per month, resulting in a yearly savings of around $180-$420, which can cover the annual Part B deductible.

Average Cost Of Medicare Supplement Plan G

  • Medicare Plan G is the most comprehensive coverage you can buy if you became eligible for Medicare after December 31, 2019.
  • Plan G has essentially the same benefits as Plan F, except for the Part B deductible.
  • Annual premiums for Medicare Plan G typically cost between $1,500 and $2,000.
  • Some insurance companies offer extra perks and benefits for vision and dental care with Medicare Plan G

Medicare Plan G is a highly sought-after Medicare Supplement Plan, known for its comprehensive coverage. It has become increasingly popular among those who are newly eligible for Medicare, given that Plan F is no longer available to them.

However, it's important to note that Plan G can be one of the more expensive Medicare Supplement Plans. It's essential to consider your health needs and budget before making a decision. Here are some key facts about Medicare Plan G, along with tips on how to decide if it's the right plan for you.

Medicare Plan F Going Away

Medicare Plan F is no longer available for new Medicare enrollees as of December 31, 2019. If you currently have Medicare Plan F, you can continue with the plan if you wish. However, if you joined Medicare after December 31, 2019, you cannot enroll in Plan F. If you were already enrolled in Plan F before this date, you can keep it as long as it remains available in your area and you meet the plan's eligibility requirements. It's important to keep this distinction in mind when comparing the differences between Medicare Plan F and Plan G.
