What Medigap Plan C Doesn’t Cover

Beyond Plan F, Medicare Supplement Plan C is the most comprehensive option available. The only benefit not included that you can receive from other supplemental insurance is coverage for Medicare Part B Excess Charges.

This coverage is important for those who have primary care physicians or specialists who charge above Medicare’s assigned fees. Doctors in most states are permitted to charge up to 15% more than the assigned fee, which you would have to make up out of pocket if you do not have this coverage, which is provided by Medigap Plans F and G


Many people confuse the Medigap Plans with the Parts of Medicare because there is an overlap between the letter names.

Medicare Part C is another name for a Medicare Advantage Plan. If you choose this option you are having a private insurance company deliver your Medicare benefits, and you CAN NOT enroll in Medigap.

Medigap Plan C is one of ten supplemental insurance plans that you may choose to purchase in addition to your regular Medicare benefits in order to add extra coverage.

Who Is Medicare Supplement Plan C Best For?

Because it covers almost everything, Medigap Plan C is ideal for those people who want the maximum amount of peace of mind, so long as they don’t mind the chance of paying extra if their doctors happen to charge above Medicare’s suggested prices.

You can always ask your care providers ahead of time if they “accept assignment” in order to make sure that they don’t charge extra.
