Never Pay a Doctor Co-pay Again: Get Plan F!

The reason Medicare Plan F is so well-liked is that it will pay for ALL of the gaps in Original Medicare Part A and Part B, including both your hospital and outpatient deductible. It even pays the 20% that Medicare Part B does not cover. This means zero out-of-pocket for you at the doctor’s office.

Check out these great Part F benefits:

Medicare Plan F provides comprehensive benefits

Medicare Plan F policies are considered first-dollar coverage. After Medicare pays its share of your claims, Medigap Plan F pays the remainder. This leaves you with $0 out of pocket.

  • Plan F fully covers both your Part A hospital deductible and your Part B outpatient deductible
  • Plan F covers all of the 20% that Medicare Part B normally leaves for you to pay
  • Plan F covers all Part B excess charges. You will never pay the standard 15% excess charges that doctors under Medicare are allowed to charge
  • Choose any doctor – from over 880,000 physicians in the United Sates
  • No referrals required! Medigap plans allow you to see any Medicare specialist whenever you like. You are not required to get a referral from your primary care doctor.
  • Guaranteed renewable. Your coverage can never be cancelled due to health conditions or the number of claims you file.

Here’s an example:  if you have no supplement, you would owe an $1,316 deductible (Part A deductible) when you go in the hospital. You would also pay 20% of expensive procedures like surgery, because Part B only pays 80%.

If you had a Medigap F policy, though, all of these would be paid for by your insurance.

Medigap F example

medicare f, medicare part f

Jan applies for a Plan F Medigap and is approved. A few months later she sees an orthopedic specialist about problems with her knee. She learns that she is a candidate for a total knee replacement. She undergoes surgery at her local hospital, and is in the hospital a couple days. She also has a home health care nurse come out to her home several times in the weeks following her surgery.

The total cost for Jan’s surgery, hospital stay and follow-up care is $70,000. Medicare pays its share of the bills and sends the remainder of about $14,000 to Jan’s Plan F insurance carrier. The carrier pays the entire bill, and Jan owes absolutely nothing except for a small copay for a generic pain medication under her Part D drug card.

Plan F vs. Plan G – which one is right for you?

When shopping for a supplement, ask your agent to help compare prices with other supplements that offer similar coverage. Quite often, we find that our clients can sometimes save $200 -$300 per year by looking at Plan G options. The coverage is very similar to Medicare supplement Plan F with one minor exception, and helps you to keep more of your money in your own pocket instead of an insurance company’s coffers. We can demonstrate the savings for you – get quotes for both Plan F and G today to see which insurance carriers offer you the greatest long-term savings and benefits!
