Of the 10 different Medicare Supplements plans (A, B, C, D, F, G, K, L, M, and N), A, B, K, and L have the lowest costs, Plans D, M, and N fall in the middle, and C, F, and G offer the most coverage.
Of all 10 Medicare plans, plan A has the smallest amount of coverage, and thus the lowest overall price. It covers:
While this is not as comprehensive as the other options, it is still extremely beneficial, and especially helpful to those working with a tight budget. Similarly, plan B is essentially the same, but with additional Part A deductible coverage.
Often overlooked are plans K and L. Plan K covers:
As you can see, this plan offers a wide variety of coverage, but at a lower percentage. With this plan, you will have half of all of these benefits covered, the other half coming out-of-pocket. Plan L offers coverage in all the same areas but at 75% rather than 50%. These plans are one of the best ways to lower your overall costs while still receiving coverage for a variety of benefits.
On the other side of things, you have the high-coverage options—plans C, F, and G. These are among the most popular supplements, as many Medicare beneficiaries desire as much coverage as possible. Plan C covers:
Plan G offers the same amount of coverage, but with Part B excess charge coverage instead of the Part B deductible. Plan F, being the overall most comprehensive option, offers both.
Plans D, M, and N fall somewhere in between the low-cost and high-coverage options. Plan D covers:
Plan N offers the exact same benefits as Plan D. However, you are responsible for paying any copayments out-of-pocket when you receive a benefit. With Plan D, these copayments are accounted for in your monthly premium.
The only difference between these and plan M is the Part A deductible—it covers 50% instead of 100%.
