Since Plan F covers so much, it is often referred to as the "buy it and forget it" plan. Anyone who does not have to worry about out-of-pocket expenses or having to pay for unexpected expenses due to gaps left in Medicare will benefit from this policy. Plan F is the best option if you're looking for extra coverage at an affordable price. Plan F will be explained in detail.

The Coverage

There are nine gaps in Medicare coverage. There are nine coverage gaps in Medicare Part F, which makes it a popular plan. With a Medicare Plan F policy, you only pay the monthly premiums for your supplement, Medicare Part B and your prescription drug coverage (Medicare Part D) and you are not charged for any other services. The Medigap Plan F and the other premiums will all be taken directly out of your Social Security payments before they are deposited into your account once you receive Social Security payments. It's easy to forget to mail your Medicare supplemental coverage check with all the bills you already have to pay. This is great because you won't have to worry about that any longer.

As with all Medicare supplement plans, Medicare Supplemental Insurance Plan F is billed through the Medicare billing system. There is no out-of-pocket expense for you. The primary coverage will be provided by Medicare, which will then be billed directly to your Medicare Plan F provider. As a whole, this type of policy is going to be the least difficult for you, but for clarity here is how Plan F would work if you were hospitalized:

Medigap Plan F covers all hospitalization costs and gives you an additional 365 days of hospitalization coverage. You will not have to worry about a dozen different medical bills after leaving the hospital if you have a Plan F policy. All nine Medicare gaps must be filled. If you were to have a foreign travel emergency, the only charges you may incur would be the first $250 and 20% coinsurance if your hospitalization was beyond 515 days. Compared to all the other out-of-pocket expenses left by other Medigap policies, Plan F could help you save thousands.

The Cost

Running a set of quotes is the only way to figure out how much a Medicare supplement will cost. A ballpark figure can't really be given because each person is different. A 75-year-old with health issues will pay a much higher price than a 69-year-old in perfect health. Each state has drastically different average premiums, so the costs will also vary based on where you live.

Your Medigap policy's cost is also determined by how the insurance company rates your coverage. A Medicare supplement policy can be rated based on three factors: attained age, community age, and issue age.
