As you may know Medigap underwent some changes in 2020, which means that the Medigap plans worth considering have also changed. Moreover, lots of people are wondering how the COVID-19 pandemic affects Medicare and additional insurance. Rest assured: Medigap is still going strong and covering the 20% Medicare leaves out plus deductibles, copays, coinsurance, etc.
Which Medigap plans are the most popular in 2020?
If you are new to Medicare after 2020 here are our recommendations:
Medigap Plan G: In most cases, this is the best option. It covers the most benefits possible at usually the most competitive prices. Even if you could purchase Plan F (in spite of the 2020 changes), Plan G usually is a better deal. You can compare Medigap G and F here to see how we came up with that recommendation.
Medigap Innovative G or G Extra: These plans offer the same coverage as Plan G, but also cover some hearing and vision benefits. As of now you can find G Extra and Innovative G in California. You can also find Innovative G in Nevada. We expect more Innovative plans coming soon.
Note: In some states Innovative G will be a better deal than regular G.
Medigap Plan N: Plan N is a good plan as long as you live in a state that doesn’t allow for Medicare’s excess charges.
Medigap High Deductible G:
The least expensive Medigap plan, Medigap G High Deductible can be a good option as long as you are fine with high deductibles.
