Compare Medicare Plan G and Plan N

According to industry data, more seniors turning age 65 enroll in Medicare Supplement Plan G than Plan N.  What’s the difference ?

Plan G offers more protection than Plan N.  You should know the two areas that Plan G covers, but that Plan N doesn’t.

Plan N does not cover:

  • Excess Charges: This  can be the additional cost that some health care providers charge. Most providers that accept Medicare payments also accept Medicare ‘assignment’ (what Medicare will pay for a given service). If the provider wants to be paid more, they can bill you for excess charges.  These can only be up to an additional 15% of the original cost.
  • Co-payments: With Plan N, you will be responsible for any co-pays of up to $20 for some office visits.  Or, the co-pay could be up to $50 if you go to the emergency room but aren’t admitted as an inpatient.

Because Plan G generally provides more benefits, it is  more expensive than Plan N.  Many consumers find that while Plan G usually has higher premiums, it can save money in the long run.  For instance, if you need to visit your doctor for treatment regularly, your out-of-pocket costs with Plan N can easily add up.  As a result, Plan N can cost you more than if you had selected Plan G.
