Most Popular Medicare Supplement Plans
You need to understand that Medicare does not cover everything, and out of pocket costs can be very expensive. That’s why supplemental coverage is co important, and there are several different plans to fit your budget. Plan F has long been the most popular Medicare supplement plan, because it pays 100% of the Medicare deductibles and copays. That means the insured person doesn’t pay a dime on anything approved by Medicare. However, it is is the most expensive and the premiums tend to increase more. Another popular Medicare supplement plan is Plan G, because it has the same benefits as Plan F, except you pay the Medicare Part D deductible. In addition, the premium savings are more than enough to pay the deductible, and the premiums do not increase as much as the Medicare supplement Plan F.
