After January 1st 2020, the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act (MACRA) will change Medicare Supplement plans in all states. It will change who can buy Medigap Plans F, High F, and C. As of 2020 only beneficiaries that do not fall into the category of “newly eligible” will be able to keep Plan F, High F and C.
Why Medigap High Deductible G?
Since Plan High Deductible F cannot be purchased by those newly eligible Medicare recipients, Plan High Deductible G will become a new option. Plan High Deductible G will be accessible beginning January 1, 2020. Both newly eligible Medicare recipients and current recipients will have the chance to purchase this new plan.
What is Medigap High Deductible G going to cover?
As of now, we are still waiting for details on the coverage of High G. We assume members of the new High G Medigap will have to satisfy a high deductible before all the benefits of traditional G are covered but the new benefit summary is not yet available. We recommend you keep coming to this post as we will update it soon!
MACRA is coming in 2020, so which plan should I buy now?
