Medicare Supplements, also known as Medigap plans, are a great option for those who are wanting a plan that will help pay for costs that Original Medicare does not cover. Medicare Supplements offer the basic benefits PLUS some additional benefits such as skilled nursing coinsurance, foreign travel, extended hospital stays. They also offer the freedom of choosing any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare, so there are no network restrictions.
All supplement plans have to be standardized, and the different levels are named Plan A through Plan N. You can visit Medicare.gov to see a chart that outlines the benefits of each of these Medicare supplement plan levels. However, it might be faster and more helpful to simply compare a few different plans at a time. Three pretty popular and comprehensive plan levels are called Plan F, G and N, so we'll start with those.
