Medigap Plan B
Plan B is a type of Medicare Supplement insurance that helps cover some of the costs left by Original Medicare, in a form of deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments. Like all Medigap plans, Plan B is standardized by the government, and can be purchased with private insurance companies.
Plan B coverage
Some of the benefits that Medigap Plan B covers include:
- Part A hospital coinsurance and up to an additional 365 days of hospital coverage
- Part B coinsurance or copayment
- The first three pints of blood every year
- Part A hospice care coinsurance
- Skilled nursing facility care coinsurance
It’s important to note that Medigap Plan B does not cover some of the additional benefits offered by other Medigap plans, such as coverage for foreign travel emergency care or Part B excess charges.
Medigap Plan B is a good choice for those who want more coverage than what’s offered in Plan A and are willing to pay a little more for additional coverage. Keep in mind that Medigap Plan B is not the right choice for everyone, and it’s important to consult with a Medicare expert before making a decision.
