Cigna Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan Options
Plan F benefits cover 100% of what Medicare doesn’t cover. There’s no deductible or out of pocket costs. The Plan F is only available to those were eligible for Medicare before January 1 2020.
Plan G and Plan N offer the same coverage for Medicare Parts A and B deductibles and coinsurance. Also Skilled nursing and rehab facility stays, hospice care, and foreign travel emergency.
With Plan G you’ll be responsible to pay the annual Medicare Part B deductible. This deductible re-sets every January and it can change from year to year. Once you meet the deductible, your medical cost are covered 100% for the remainder of the year.
With Plan N, You’ll also be responsible to pay the Part B deductible. Once you’ve met the Part B deductible for the year, you could have up to a $20 co-pay for primary or specialist office visits. Tele health visits, where you consult with a doctor over the phone, are not office visits, so there’s no co-pay for this service.
Another co-pay you could have with Plan N is if you go to the Emergency room. You could have up to a $50 co-pay. But if you’re admitted as an inpatient to the hospital, the co-pay is waived.
One other benefit that plan N doesn’t cover is Part B Excess Charges. Excess Charges are rare and we don’t see this happen very often. If you see doctors that accept Medicare Assignment, or Medicare as payment in full, then you won’t have to worry about Excess Charges.
