As of January 1, 2020 individuals who are newly eligible for Medicare will no longer be able to purchase Medigap Plan C or Plan F (this includes the high deductible Plan F option as well). This is a result of the Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA) that prevents individuals new to Medicare from purchasing Medigap plans that pay for the Part B deductible, which is currently $185 for 2019. Both Plans C and F cover the Part B deductible. This law also applies to the 3 states- Massachusetts, Wisconsin and Minnesota- who operate their own Medigap systems.
