About Medicare Plan G Supplemental Insurance
Medicare supplemental insurance Plan G, also known as Medigap Plan G, is a popular plan option offered by Medicare supplement insurance carriers. This policy can pay for much of the large expenses original Medicare approves for your health care coverage.
Specifically, Medicare Plan G provides coverage for basic benefits, which are essentially:
- Coinsurance under Part B
- Your blood deductible
- Hospital co-insurance
- An additional 365 days of hospitalization
- Part A deductible
- Up to 80% of excess charges under Part B
- Coverage for the some medical costs during travel abroad
Medicare Plan G is a good choice if you wish to supplement your original Medicare with a plan that comes at rates comparable to, or lower than, the premiums you pay with Medicare supplement F. While you can always do your own research and obtain rate quotes by calling around to several different companies yourself, companies like Puritan will do all the work for you.
