Medigap in Maryland is the secondary insurance plan that takes care of the 20% that Medicare doesn’t pay for. There are 10 different standardized plans that you get from a private insurance company. There are 3 plans that I recommend to all of my clients. The best plans that you could choose from are plans F, G, or N. They are all different but they are all good for different situations.
Medicare Supplement Plan F
Medicare Supplement Plan F is the best plan that you can get. With this plan you will have no out-of-pocket expenses besides the monthly premium. You will have no copayments, no deductibles, and no coinsurance costs. This plan in Maryland is for someone who has major health conditions, someone who doesn’t want to pay unexpected cost out of their pocket, or for someone who just wants to be 100% covered.
Medicare Supplement Plan G
Medicare Supplement Plan G in Maryland is the second best plan that you can get. This plan is very similar to the plan F. The only difference is that with the plan G you will be responsible for the Part B deductible of $166 per year. This plan is for someone who may have a few health conditions and want good coverage but can’t afford the best coverage, for someone who doesn’t mind paying the small deductible per year, or for someone who just wants good coverage just in case something ever comes up in the future.
Medicare Supplement Plan N
Medicare Supplement Plan N is one of the best plans that you can get. With this plan it’s a little different from the other two. If you have plan N, you will be responsible for the Part B deductible of $166, you would also be responsible for what is called “Part B excess charges”, which means that if you go to the doctor’s office that they can charge you up to 15% of the Medicare-Approved costs. If you ever go to the doctor you may have up to a $20 copay and if you go to the Emergency Room and don’t get admitted into the hospital then you may have up to a $50 copay. This plan is for someone who has minor health conditions to no health conditions at all, for someone who wants good coverage but can’t afford the best plans, also for someone who doesn’t mind paying the yearly deductible or the 2 copays that you may be responsible for.
People always ask when the best time to sign up for the secondary insurance plan in Maryland is. Well I am here to tell you! The best time to sign up for a plan is during Open Enrollment period. To be in this period, you would have to had just turned 65 or just signed up for Medicare Part B for the first time. During this time, you do not have to go through the medical questions process. You can not be denied coverage for pre-existing conditions or any other health conditions you may have. They can not cancel the plan if you end up having medical issues in the future. This is also the best time to sign up because it will also be the cheapest time because you are at the youngest age possible to get a Medicare Supplement plan.
