Elk Grove Medicare Supplement Plans, also known as Elk Grove Medigap Plans, help to cover some or all of the costs that Original Medicare will not cover. Having a Elk Grove Medicare Supplement policy will typically provide you with the maximum flexibility in provider choice. With a Elk Grove Medicare Supplement Plan, you can see any provider that accepts Medicare and is accepting patients. There are no Networks or other issues to worry about. If you like to travel away from Elk Grove and the Sacramento area, these could be a good choice for you.
The amount of Medical expenses covered really depends on which Elk Grove Medigap plan that you purchase. There are Medicare Supplement Plans A, B, C, D, F, G, K, L, M and N, and all have different amount of coverage and some have a deductible that need to be met. Most Elk Grove residents choose one of 3 plan types. These are Elk Grove Medicare Supplement Plans F, G and N. If you have Original Medicare, then I believe that it is pretty important to consider purchasing an Elk Grove Medigap Plan. If you do not buy an Elk Grove Medicare Supplement Plan, you are putting yourself at financial risk. If you do not purchase a Medigap policy, you will likely have to pay out-of-pocket for all of the costs of the deductibles and co-pays of Medicare.
Elk Grove Medicare Supplement Plans are standardized by The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (a.k.a.: CMS), so once you decide on the right plan for you, you can easily compare plans from the many Insurance Companies. Insurance Companies selling the same Medigap plan can charge very different premiums. It pays to compare; I find couples every month that are paying $50-$100/mo more for exactly the same coverage! You can call every company yourself and find out their rates, or you can find an Independent Insurance Broker who will be able to tell you which plans are the cheapest at any given time. The Insurance Companies do change their rates on plans as their costs go up, so it pays to have an agent you are working with to get you the lowest rates. Given the fact that a Plan F Medicare Supplement from one company covers exactly what medical costs another companies Plan F will cover, it pays to shop around for a good price. Some companies do have some extra benefits with their Medicare Supplement plans, and they might be worth while for you. They may include:
- nurse hotlines for advise
- certain discounts on some services
- Basic gym memberships, at no additional cost
An Independent Insurance Broker can help you find the plan that is right for you. Talk to a Elk Grove local Independent Insurance Broker to find the Elk Grove Medicare Supplement Plan that works best for you.
Elk Grove Medicare Supplement Plan F
Medicare Supplement Plan F seems to be the most popular Medigap Plan available in Elk Grove today. There are some good reasons for this. The Plan F covers all your Medicare deductibles and co-pays for anything that Original Medicare considers allowable charges. This makes having Medicare very easy and predictable.
If you get the Plan F Medicare Supplement, then you will only have the following expenses for most services:
- Your Part B Premium
- Your Medicare Supplement Plan F Premium
- Your Premium for your Part D Rx Plan
- Any co-pays and deductibles for your Part D Rx Plan
You still need to have a Part D Rx Plan, but most of your medical costs will be paid for with the first 2 premiums. If you would like to find out which Plan F has the lowest premium in Elk Grove, and best service for you and your doctor, please give me a call.
Elk Grove Medicare Supplement Plan G
Elk Grove Medicare Supplement Plan G is very similar to the Elk Grove Medicare Supplement Plan F, but it does not pay the Medicare Part B deductible ($183 in 2017). So you will need to pay that amount for outpatient services before the Medicare Supplement will pick up the rest of Medicare Part B expenses.
Elk Grove Medicare Supplement Plan N
Medicare Supplement Plan N is becoming another very popular choice with people new to Medicare Supplement Plans in Elk Grove. The Medicare Plan N costs less than the Plan F or Plan G, and can be a good alternative to a Medicare Advantage Plan. The Plan N is a like a hybrid plan that covers most services, but there are co-pays and deductibles that you will need to pay.
The largest costs to consider with the Medicare Plan N are as follows:
- $20 co-payment for doctor office visits
- $50 co-payment for Emergency Room visits (unless you are admitted as an in-patient)
- Your annual Medicare Part B deductible ($183. for 2017)
- Medicare Part B excess charges (some doctors may charge up to 15% over what Medicare allows)
If you think an Elk Grove Medicare Supplement Plan N might be a good fit, please call to discuss your situation and find out more about your options.
