Medicare Supplement Plan G 2020
One of the most popular Supplement plans for the coming year will be Medicare Supplement Plan G 2020. This has been the most subscribed to supplemental insurance plan for the past few years, so we have no reason to suspect it will not be the most popular plan moving forward once again.
The reason that Plan G is so well liked is because of its economical benefits. It offers lots of coverage (the most of any currently available Supplement plans) and yet it isn’t very expensive. Plan G already saves a lot of seniors quite a bit of money, and we believe that it could save many more people a lot for 2020 as well. This is why we recommend it to many seniors and why we want to spend some time talking about it here.
How Plan G Will Cover Your Medical Costs
With Plan G, you will enjoy powerful coverage for medical care. You will be covered for various expenses that some of the other Supplement plans do not cover.
Plan G covers you for Medicare Part A’s coinsurance (for hospice care), copayments and the annual deductible. These are all the leftover Part A expenses that Medicare subscribers would have to deal with. They can all be covered under Plan G.
With Plan G, you will also get coverage for Medicare Part B excess charges (when the healthcare provider does not accept Medicare coverage) and the Part B copayments for each outpatient visit.
Nursing care coinsurance is covered under Plan G as well, along with foreign travel exchange costs (related to emergency travel for medical care outside the US), and the first three pints of blood you use each year.
All of this makes up the powerful coverage Plan G. The only supplemental expense not covered by this plan is the Medicare Part B annual deductible. It is going to be covered only by plans that are no longer available, so you will almost always have to pay for the Part B deductible on its own, but that’s okay, since it only costs $185 a year.
The Cost of Plan G
You can’t really tell if Plan G is a good deal for you or not until you know how much it costs. The prices for this plan are determined by private insurance companies. These companies get to decide how much to charge for the plans, and they do change their rates about once a year. We can’t list every single rate for Plan G right here, but what we can do is offer you a way to search for Plan G rates and see what various providers charge for them.

Medicare Supplement Plan G 2020 is usually an economical plan, and that is what we love about and it is why we often recommend this one. It usually has a really good price, especially when you consider how much it offers to you in coverage. On top of that, you will usually get some member perks for signing up with one insurance company or the other. This can help you save money in other ways and not have to pay so much for services that you might use. These services can include access to medical professionals at any time of day, discounted prescription drug programs, diet and exercise plans, gym memberships and more. What you get just depends on which insurance provider you sign up with, and those perks are often added for you free of charge.
Once you agree to the terms of a Medicare Plan G, you will need to pay a monthly premium. This needs to be paid for you to keep receiving your coverage otherwise, you will be in breach of your agreement and will not get the coverage you signed up for.
The Value of Plan G
This is the kind of medical insurance plan that we think every senior should be considering. It may not be right for all of them, but we think it holds tremendous value and therefore shouldn’t be overlooked. If you decide that Plan G is not right for you, then you may want to consider Plan N as a near alternative. If you are having trouble in finding a suitable plan for your needs, you should talk to our team members and get some help in making this important decision.
Plan G is considered the highest value Supplement plan because of how much coverage it provides (nearly full coverage) and how affordably it is often priced. However, it may offer too much coverage, in some cases. For those people, there are other plans that they can pick from, and we suggest checking out the entire lineup of Supplement plans. Your local insurance providers can often supply you with a range of plans and may have something that will work well for you.
There are other alternatives you can try too, such as Medicare Advantage or Medicare Part D. You may also want to look into plans from your employer or your union.
Medicare Supplement Plan G 2020 is going to be available during your enrollment period, and if you are 65 year already, then you are probably eligible for it. If you have Medicare Part A and Part B, then you are eligible as well. If you find that those parts of Medicare leave you with too much to pay in medical fees, then you should look into some supplemental insurance, such as Supplement Plan G.
