Medicare Supplement Insurance: Plan F

Medicare Supplement Plan F offers the most comprehensive coverage out of all Medicare Supplement (Medigap) policies. As a result of providing a complete benefits list, Medigap Plan F is often the most expensive plan option out of all other Medigap plans, yet it remains a popular choice among Medicare beneficiaries. Medigap Plan F leaves enrollees with minimal out-of-pocket expenses by covering the remainder of hospital and doctor costs after Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) has paid its portion.

Medicare Supplement (Medigap) Plan F Covered Benefits

The following is a list of costs and benefits covered by Medigap Plan F:

  • Part A deductible
  • Part B deductible
  • Part B excess charges
  • Preventative care Part B co-insurance
  • Part A hospital and co-insurance costs up to an additional 356 days after Medicare benefits are exhausted
  • Part B co-insurance or co-payment
  • First three pints of blood used in an approved medical procedure (annually)
  • Part A hospice care co-payment or co-insurance
  • Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) co-insurance
  • Foreign travel emergency

Costs Associated with Medigap Plan F Coverage

There is an additional high deductible Medigap Plan F option that requires beneficiaries to pay out-of-pocket expenses for the first $2,200 in 2017 before the plan will begin paying for coverage. This plan is a cheaper alternative to the standard Medigap Plan F, since the beneficiary is responsible for higher out-of-pocket costs from the start.

Medigap Plan F is offered through most carriers, so you may want to shop around. Other plans may be available at lower cost but Plan F generally represents a great value for those facing increased copayments and deductibles because of regular medical attention.
