2020 Medigap Changes: No New Plans C and F

Learn what the Congressional change means for your Medigap plan

by Ray Wilson+ on Jan 04, 2016 | 47 Comments

As of 2020, Medicare Supplement plans (AKA Medigap) will no longer sell new Medigap Plan C or F.  Congress has decided that new Medigap plans will no longer be allowed to cover the Part B deductible after January 1, 2020. This will only affect plans C and F and will only impact certain beneficiaries as explained below.

How is Medicare Changing in 2020?

Congress believes that by requiring all Medicare members to pay their part B deductible this will reduce medical overuse.  Since Medigap Plans C and Medigap Plan F* are the only plans that cover the part B deductible, they will be the only plans affected by this change.

Who is Impacted by the 2020 Medigap Change?

New enrollees on or after 1/1/2020 will no longer have the option of Medigap Plan C or Medigap Plan F. All other plans currently available should still be available for purchase.  Anyone enrolled in a Medigap Plan C or Medigap Plan F as of 12/31/2019 will be “grandfathered” and able to continue with their plan as long as want. So if you currently have a plan F you will be able to keep it.

Which Medigap Plan Should You Choose?

Senior65 recommends that you select the best plan based on your:

    1) Budget
    2) Unique health needs
    3) State specific laws.

Please contact us and a licensed Senior65 agent can help you with this process. 

*Please Note: Medigap Plan F includes Medigap Plan F High Deductible

My wife is 72 and in good health. She has been on Medigap Plan F. If she is grandfathered in, I hear the no deductible will remain, but will she be facing higher premiums? Wondering if we should switch her to Plan G like i have and if so can we wait until latter 2019 to do so or would it be better to do so sooner?

There has been a lot of speculation that Plan F prices will increase once it is no longer available to those new to medicare. While we cannot know for sure what will happen in the future, we are starting to see some providers are increase the price of F over G. If you are considering switching from F to G, you want to do is while your wife is healthy. If she has a medical issue and then tries to switch she could be turned down. If you need help switching plans, we are good at it so please give us a call at 800-930-7956.

Does being grandfathered in a Medicare Advantage (Plan C) for after Dec 31, 2019 mean we won't have to pay the Part B deductible? The wording of the article isn't that clear on the deductible.

The article refers to Medigap PLAN C. This is very different to Medicare PART C (Medicare Advantage). Medicare Advantage plans will not change after 2020. Why they have two products both with the label "C" is a mystery.

Those with Medigap Plan C will not have to pay a deductible after 2020. -Jacima from Senior65.com

I too am quite upset with this law change, especially coming from a Republican Congress. I have an Advantage (Plan C) plan. It covers all of basic Medicare plus eye exams, some eyeglasses costs, a dental exam, and other benefits. I still have to pay my full Part B premium to Medicare and I pay an extra premium to Aetna for Plan C. So I fail to see how this hurts Medicare. What is really irksome is that it is the Republicans who have talked for years about giving people more health care insurance options, then they turn around and take options away from Medicare participants.

By Nancy on July 28, 2018

I'm livid that congress made this happen. I have a cost plan with the Blues for 145/mo. It covers everything Medicare doesnt. No deductible; no co-pays. 100% coverage.

By Linda on April 07, 2018

Is there any new information concerning HighDed.Plan F for South Carolina seniors? Will this plan see substantial increases in monthly costs for the future? Thank you!

We have no insight into general future rate hikes for Plan F high deductible at this time. Give us a call for specific pricing info.

My wife turns 65 on Mar 14, 2020. Will she be able to apply for Part F supplement in Dec 0f 2019 to avoid not being eligible for Part F under the 90 day prior rule.

Unless your wife qualifies for Medicare early due to disability, she will not be able to purchase a Plan F before she turns 65. In most cases a Plan G cost less and will save her money over F. Get a instant Medigap F and G quote here.

I won't be eligible for Medicare until after 2020. My plan had been to buy a Plan F with the high deductible and pay for the deductible with my HSA. After Plan F goes away, will the high deductible option be made available for other plans such as Plan G? Thanks!

We have not heard of any high deductible Medigap plan available to those new to medicare after 2020. We will keep this site posted if new rules allow for one in the future.

I am 68 and have been on Medicare with a Plan F Medigap supplemental and a Plan D for prescriptions. From what I am understanding, my coverage should be grandfathered after 1/1/20. Am I correct? My question is regarding cost. I have a number of preexisting conditions and am concerned that my insurance carrier will be able to raise my premium significantly and I won't be able to afford it. If that is true what would my options be?

You are correct that you will be able to stay with Plan F after 2020. No one knows what will happen to health premiums in the future. All price increases will have to be approved by your insurance commissioner and cannot target just one individual for pre-existing health conditions.

While some states like California, Oregon, New York and Connecticut make it easy to switch Medigap plans, most state require you to fill out a application with health questions to switch.

I am in my initial enrollment for medigap - my birthday was in July and I have part 1 and b. I believe my IEP ends at the end of December. If I instead decide to enroll in a Medicare Advantage program isn't there a period of time I can switch to medigap without underwriting? Or would I have had to have been in a medigap plan first, then switch to MA? IF I start with MA and am allowed to switch later WITHOUT underwriting, could I still get plan G? This is so confusing.

We agree this is so confusing. Our first suggestion is to use our MEDICARE DEADLINE calculator to make sure you have the dates correct. Basically, you if you start with Medicare Advantage you could switch to any Medigap if it has been less than 6 month from your Part B effective date. If you have been on Medicare Advantage for more than 6 months but less than one year, you can switch to some Medigap plans automatically but Plan G would require you to answer Medical questions.

If you start with Medigap, you can always switch to Medicare Advantage but it has to take place during Open Enrollment. If you are still confused please call us. We would love to help you get the right coverage!

I am 67 and have a serious health issue (Alpha 1) I have Plan F and am concerned about the premium increase after 2020. Can I switch to Plan G before then without having to go through underwriting because of the ending of the Plan I am in? Or to keep covering my monthly infusions do I have to stay in Plan F, no matter the increase in premium?

Some insurance companies may let you downgrade from F to G without medical review while others will not. Call you insurance company to find out. Make sure you check if your state allows you to switch your medigap plan by law.
-Chris from Senior65.com

By Elizabeth on August 22, 2017

Can you please define "new enrollees"?

Anyone who applies for a Medigap plan in 2020 would be considered a "new enrollee." Basically if you have plan C or F before 2020 you can keep it but those trying to purchase it in 2020 will be out of luck.
-Chris from https://www.senior65.com

Plan F is a waste of money anyway, the cost difference between the increased Plan F Premiums and Plan G Premiums is more than the Part B Deductible, so Plan G actually costs you less money.

By mitch on August 11, 2017

Congress believes that by requiring all Medicare members to pay their part B deductible this will reduce medical overuse. Are you kidding me and all the while the taxpayers are paying for the top of line insurance benefits these leaches are receiving. I hope president Trump does take their elaborate subsidy away from them and makes them sign up for the same worthless coverages that they are forcing us to use. Lets see what they think of that .

By Ralph on July 25, 2017

I will be turning 65 this fall. If I chose plan F and post-2020 see substantial rate increases, am I guaranteed acceptance without penalty despite health issues into another plan, i.e. plan G? In general, can an enrollee drop into a plan with less benefits anytime without underwriting? I can see the increased premiums over time for "Cadillac" plans would encourage me to shop for a plan with cheaper premiums. Would coverage be guaranteed if I chose to do so? Also, if I experience significant premium increases over time with the company that I initially chose, am I guaranteed coverage into the same plan with another provider or am I stuck due to health issues with the company chosen on day one?

Unless you live in a state that allows for Medigap plan switching , there is no guarantee that you can switch or "downgrade" to a lesser benefit plans. Unless there are state laws in place, each insurance company can decide to let you switch. Most of our clients are starting with plan G as they believe they will be cheaper in the long run. Feel free to call us to discuss.

My wife and I are 73 and have had Medigap plan F for the past 3 years. I understand that plan F is going away in 2020 except for those that are grandfathered in. Should we switch to a plan G now and would there be any pre-existing conditions that would govern an increase in the cost or should we maintain the medigap plan F? Thank you.

If you would like to switch to Medigap Plan G and have preexisting conditions you can be charged more (too many to name). So therefore you'll have weigh if the new Plan G premiums (if you are approved) is worth it for you. We'd be happy to help you decide if F or G is right for your particular situation.

My husband and I had both been enrolled in Plan F. Made aware that this plan (and plan C) will cease to be offered as of 1/1/20 we changed to Plan G now, while we are healthy and underwriting would not be a problem. We were told that although we would be grandfathered in Plan F, that as the number of people enrolled in Plan F would begin to decline due to ceased enrollment and deaths, that the premiums would begins to skyrocket with fewer participants. It was mentioned that this is what happened and continues to happen to those enrolled in the cancelled (in 2010) Plan J which offered preventative care and in home recovery.

By Val on May 18, 2017

As a new member to Medicare, I am signing up for Medigap Plan F. I have two different companies, one being $45/mo more that the other. Their pitch is they sell a policy that can not be cancelled unless by me. However, as I research this, it seems that once I'm enrolled in Plan F I can stay there after it's closed by Medicare. So, if enrolled in Plan F, can I stay in it? Can an insurance company move me out after Medicare closes Plan F? Am I grandfathered in for life if I choose?

In most cases, your Medigap plans cannot be cancelled unless you miss a payment or choose to end coverage. So, yes, you can stay in Plan F for life. A company may choose to stop working in your area, but not pull out of the market just on their grandfathered plans, like dropping F, but keeping G after 2020. If your company chooses to leave your area, you will have a Special Enrollment Period, and will not have to answer medical questions to enroll in another Medigap plan. This should set your mind at ease when choosing a plan.

We highly recommend that you give one of our Senior65 licensed agents a call at 800-930-7956. We can help you walk through the plans in your area, and help you make an educated decision as to which Medicare Supplement plan is right for you.

A previous person posted a question about enrolling into a Plan F High Deductible plan post 1-1-20. Amy, the person who responded from this website was incorrect. The new law states that the Part B Deductible can not be covered by a plan for new enrollment. With Plan FHD, NOTHING is covered by the supplement until the $2100 (approx) deductible is met. Therefore, this plan does not cover the Part B ded. Plan FHD will be available for enrollment post 2020 and will not face massive rate increases those that are Grandfathered into Plan F and C will face...

Thank you for your thoughtful comment. However, according to what we have learned from our sources, High F will no longer be sold to new enrollees after 2020, since it technically does cover the Part B deductible if you were to meet all of your out of pocket costs through Part A. We will continue to do research this subject, and update as this comment as needed.

June 1, 2017 is the anniversary of my High Deductible plan F. I am considering moving to plan G. But, wanted to know would I be able to retain Plan F High Deductible in 2020 and will it still be offered to new applicants?

You will not be able to join an F plan (High F included) or Plan C after 2020, even if you had an F plan in the past. If you're interested in enrolling in a Medigap Plan G plan now, call one of our Senior65 licensed independent insurance agents at 800-930-7956.

I am 65 but still working. I am not under any Medicare now as I am covered under employer's insurance. If I retire before 2020 and enroll in plan F and later move to a different state after 2020 , will I still be able to keep plan F coverage ?

In most states, if you have Medigap and move out of state your plan will be portable. To find out which Plan F company is right for you, please call one of our Senior65 licensed independent insurance agents at 800-930-7956.

I live in GA. I understand I am unable to purchase a medigap plan until the 1st day of the month in which I turn 65. This is May 1, 2017. I am uncertain how long it will take to approve my application but will I be faced with a gap in "supplemental" coverage(for medicare approved expenses) in the period between application date and approval date ? Thank you. Joe

The first day of your birth month is when START your Medigap plan, but you can enroll up to 90 days before your effective date (takes a few days for approval). Call one of our Senior65 licensed independent insurance agents to help you enroll in a Medigap plan, 800-930-7956.

Under the California Birthday Rule, and after 2020, will someone with Plan F still be able to switch to Plan G, or another plan with fewer benefits if they want to, just like they can now? Or, is there a chance that they wouldn't be able to still use the CA Birthday Rule to change plans after 2020? Thanks...

As of now, after 2020, a Medigap Plan F enrollee will still be able to switch to any plan of equal or lesser benefits, including G. If you need help switching before then call one of our Senior65 licensed independent insurance agents at 800-930-7956.

I have Plan F and was recently told the premiums for this plan are not eligible as deductions for some senior benefits. I receive a senior tax reduction on my property taxes but now they are telling me Plan F cannot be taken into account. This puts me over the income threshold for receiving the tax break and now I owe several thousand dollars in property taxes. Is this true?

If one non-intenionly-misstated a health condition on a medical under writing question and is dropped from plan F, what alternatives would be avaiable?

You can apply to another company, as not all Medigap companies have the same medical underwriting requirements. The other option is to apply for a Medicare Advantage plan during the Annual Election Period (Oct 15-Dec 7).

I live in CA. I have Plan F and consider changing to Plan N. After I change to Plan N, can I change back to Plan F later anytime for the same provider even after 2020?

If you decide to switch from Plan F to Plan N during the CA Birthday Rule, you will need to go through medial underwriting to switch back to Medigap Plan F. No one will be able to switch to or enroll in Plan F after 2020. If you need help finding a plan call one of our Senior65 licensed independent insurance agents at 800-930-7956.

Is it feasible that social security, or medicare programs will not be offered in the future. If so, will those already enrolled in these programs be grandfathered in ? It seems inconceivable that social security and or medicare could be discontinued for those already in the program.

We have no way of knowing what Congress will do in the future. However, we do agree that it seems inconceivable.

By Ed Davis on November 21, 2016

I have heard that if you have Plan F under a "Group Policy" such as community rated plans that those plans will not be grandfathered in. Is that correct information or salesman talk to get you to switch companies?

Community rated plans and group plans are different animals. Group policies are job-based insurance plans, and while these may have something similar to a Medigap plan, they will not be a Medigap plan. Otherwise, all other Medigap Plan F plans will continue after 2020, unless your plan chooses to leave your area -which means that you would have guaranteed issuance.

What is the number on this bill and has it already been passed into law? Is there still time to voice my opinion to my representatives against this bill? Seniors like myself are sick and tired of Congress passing bills that are detrimental to our wellbeing. I cannot believe how corrupt our country has become.

By Marilee Gordon on October 15, 2016

So if someone like me goes to the doctor once a year for a prescription renewal, we are being "rewarded" by increasing our premium every 3 months to try to get rid of us. Now, by reading this site, it appears only new subscribers in 2020 will be unable to get Plan F like I have - which pays Everything Medicare approves and doesn't pay. Am I reading this correctly - we, presently, on Plan F can keep it?

Firstly, if you are enrolled in a Plan F prior to 2020, you can keep your plan. Secondly, if your Medicare Supplement raises your rate 4 times per year, you may want to consider switching to another company.

If you are under 65 on SSDI and buy Medigap in a state which provides coverage, and then move to a state which does not offer Medigap policy for under 65, can your plan become portable to new state

Your Medigap plan is portable to most states, with few exceptions (ie. Massachusetts). With that said, your rate will be adjusted to the new zip code. Hope this helps!

Because Plans C and F no longer will be available beginning Jan. 1, 2020, for new enrollees, has CMS provided for guaranteed-issue rights to allow beneficiaries to enroll in plans with fewer benefits, or will individual insurance companies simply allow for those rights at their discretion?

As far as we know, those enrolled in Plan C and F prior to 2020 will continue with those plans. If they want to switch to a plan of lesser benefits, they will have to go through medical underwriting. If this changes, we will update this comment.

Would a CURRENT Plan F policyholder living in California (which has an annual "birthday open enrollment" each year) be able to switch to a new/different Medigap provider company and KEEP their Plan F benefits with the new company? Or after 2020, if you switched companies during the California birthday open enrollment, would you lose your Plan F and be forced to enroll in a lesser plan (like Plan G)?

Great questions! 1) During the California Medigap Birthday Rule, a current CA resident who has Medigap may switch their Medicare Supplement F to any plan of equal or lesser value. 2) As far as we know, after 2020, you will not be able to switch your Plan F to another plan F, since there are no new plans offered, but you could switch to any available plan with lesser benefits.

When plan F stops covering the part B deductible in 2020, how will it differ from plan G, since everything else is the same?

Plan F will stop being offered to new enrollees as of 2020, but anyone who was enrolled before December 31, 2019, will be able to keep their Plan F coverage. So, the plans will still differ: Plan F will cover your Part B deductible, and Plan G will not.

After 2020, once no new Plans C and F will be sold, will Plan G then become the new guaranteed issue version?

Medicare Supplement Plan G offers guaranteed issuance now, when you first are eligible for Medicare Part B and turn 65. If you are asking if Plan G will be guaranteed issuance if you already have Part B and are over 65, but have a qualifying event to enroll, unfortunately, there is not a definitive answer to that now.

I will be turning 65 this year. an agent suggested going with Plan G since it is the same as Plan F and the premium is lower and the difference between these to plans is approx $20-24 less for plan G. So this covers the $166 deductible in plan G. I'm leaning toward Plan G. My question is, if I opt for Plan F and fewer people go to plan F over the next several years, won't the premiums for Plan F go up, with few people being put on this plan? I know I would be able to go to a different plan, but as I age won't my premium for Plan F go up considerably?

We agree that Medigap Plan G is the way to go if the premium savings is significant, and it historically saves money over Plan F.

We don't know how premiums will change for Plan F after 2020. Unfortunately, no one can answer that. All that we can look at is how historically rates increased with the legacy plans (plans no longer available after 2010), and those rates stayed competitive.

How come they are getting rid of F? I thought that was the most popular plan.

We totally understand, and it is the most popular plan. The reasoning we've heard is that Congress believes that Medicare Supplement Insurance beneficiaries who have first-dollar coverage (plans pays immediately for coverage) like Medigap C and F, costs more to tax payers for what we pay for Original Medicare, than those who have to pay even the small Part B deductible. It's been shown that those with C and F happen to go to the doctor more frequently, so this is a way to curb Medicare spending. Hope this helps!
