Medicare Supplement Plan N
Back in June of 2010 Medicare Supplemental Insurance (Medigap) added two new choices for Medicare beneficiaries - The most popular by far is Medicare Supplement Plan N - a.k.a Medigap Plan N.
Four plus years later and the jury is in… Medicare Supplement Plan N is one of the top 3 most popular choices preferred by individual choosing a Medigap plan. Medicare Supplement Plan "M" has not been a popular choice at all. As a result most Medicare Supplement (Medigap) insurance providers are now offering the Medicare Supplement plan N, and most do not offer the Supplement plan M.
Medicare Supplement Plan N - Plan Design
Medicare Supplement Plan N differs from other Medigap Plans in a few distinct ways - 1st it has similar benefits to Medigap Plan G, except there is a $20 co-payment for doctor visits and a $50 co-payment for emergency room visits. Both Medigap plan "N" and Medigap Plan "G" require the individual to pay the Part B $147 (2015) annual deductible, then in Medigap plan "N" the co-pays will apply after the deductible is paid. Also, unique to plan "N", is that it does not cover the "Excess Charges" that are allowed under Medicare rules. These would need to be paid by the insured individual. Plan "F" and "G" cover these charges.
The good news is the cost of Medicare Supplement Plan "N" is about 70% of the cost of Plan F. The other good news is that Plan "N" is a very attractive alternative to Medicare Advantage plans for those looking to reduce premiums without limiting access to doctors and hospitals.
