Cost is a major concern for many seniors and Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan A* is a practical solution for getting the basic coverage you deserve at an affordable price. With this plan you can count on extra days of hospital and skilled nursing care after traditional Medicare benefits end as well as 100 percent of any copays and coinsurance costs for hospice care. You pay a small premium, your Medicare Part A and Part B deductibles and any Part B excess charges.
Original Medicare (Part A) pays for hospitalization charges, but only until day 60. Should you need extended hospital care, a Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan can pick up where Original Medicare ends. Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan A covers 100 percent of your hospitalization coinsurance from day 61 through day 90 ($370 a day) and the remainder owed after day 90 ($742 a day). This plan also pays the cost for an additional 365 days of hospital care after your Medicare Lifetime Reserve benefits end. With this plan, the costs for the first three pints of blood and your Medicare co-payment/coinsurance for hospice care are covered.

* Plan F also has an option called a high-deductible Plan F. This high-deductible plan pays the same or offers the same benefits as Plan F after one has paid a calendar year $2,370 deductible. Benefits from high-deductible Plan F will not begin until out-of-pocket expenses are $2,370.
Out-of-pocket expenses for this deductible are expenses that would ordinarily be paid by the policy. These expenses include the Medicare deductibles for Part A and Part B but do not include the plan’s separate foreign travel emergency deductible.
** Hospital benefits must be provided by facilities participating with Medicare. Payments are limited to the reasonable charge as determined by Medicare.
