Medicare Supplement Plan G
Medicare plan G is a good choice for individuals who go to the doctor on a fairly regular basis. Its high deductible means that you have to pay more out of pocket, but you also have fewer out-of-pocket expenses in the future. The low premiums and no co-pays are another plus for this Medicare supplement plan.
How To Choose A Medicare plan G?
In order to qualify for Medicare Part G, you must be a US citizen or a legal resident of the United States for the previous five years. Also, you must have worked at least 10 years in the US. The other two qualifications for enrolling in Medicare plan G are that you must be 65 years old or disabled and you must pay the Part A premium.
Medicare plan G covers many things that Original Medicare does not. However, the coverage in Plan G is not comprehensive, and does not extend the scope of care. It does not cover more than 80% of the costs incurred by the original Medicare. It also does not cover the copay or deductible for Part A and Part B, so you will have to pay these costs out of pocket. However, the copay for Medicare Part B will count towards the Plan G deductible.
Medicare plan G is designed to be used along with Original Medicare Part A and Part B. It will cover some or all of the cost-sharing associated with Medicare Part B, but it will not cover the Part B deductible. However, if you are prepared to pay the deductible in advance, Plan G is a great choice.
