Medicare Supplement Plans, sometimes called Medigap Plans are set and standardized by CMS (Medicare). They offer 10 plans but the three most popular are Plan F, Plan G and Plan N.
Ohio Medicare Supplement Plan F
The Plan F Medicare Supplement Plan Ohio, simply put, covers everything. On the face that seems like a great idea, but there are a few reasons why.
- It is the most expensive Plan on the Market
- It has the highest rate increases of all the Medicare Supplement Plans
- The Medicare Supplement Plan F will no longer be available to new enrollment as of 2020.
**The Medicare Supplement Plan F High deductible plan will not be changed in 2020.
Ohio’s Medicare Supplement Plan F is currently only one of two Medicare Supplement plans that will cover up to 100% of Medicare Part B excess charges, however, this will not be an issue for you in the state of Ohio. Ohio Medicare Supplement Plan F provides coverage for the following:
- Hospitalization – the Supplement Plan F takes care of the coinsurance for Medicare Part A and adds an additional 365 days of coverage after Medicare Part A coverage is exhausted.
- Medical Expenses – The Ohio Medicare Supplement Plan F will cover the Medicare Part B coinsurance (typically 20%) or copayments for hospital outpatient services.
- Blood – Medicare Supplement Plan F covers the first three pints of blood each year not covered under Medicare Part A.
- Hospice – Medicare Supplement Plan F will pay for the coinsurance required under Medicare Part A for hospice care.
Ohio Medicare Supplement Plan F will also provide the following coverages in addition to the basic benefits found in Plan A, B, and C:
- Excess Charges – Medicare Supplement Plan F will pay for any excess charges that your physician charges over and above what is approved by Medicare.
- Skilled Nursing – Medicare Plan F pays for skilled nursing facility care that is not covered by Original Medicare Part A and Part B.
- Deductibles – Ohio Medicare Supplement Plan F will cover the deductibles found under Original Medicare Part A and Part B.
Ohio Medicare Supplement Plan G
The Medicare Supplement Plan Ohio that offer's the most coverage for the lowest premium is the Medigap Plan G. The Medicare Supplement Plan G is offers the exact same benefits of the Plan F except that you will pay the Part B deductible. The Part B deductible is set by Medicare and can change, but at this time it is $183.00 per year.
The Ohio Medicare Supplement Plan G is normally $300.00 to $400.00 per year less in premium than the Plan F and historically has much lower rate increases.
Once the Part B deductible ($183.00 for 2018) is paid, your benefits will be identical to the Medicare Supplement Plan F. Why would anyone want to pay an insurance company $300.00 to $400.00 a year more to just to pay a $183.00 deductible.

Ohio Medicare Supplement Plan N
Medicare Supplement Plan N is one of the lowest cost Medicare Supplement Plans, but you will take on a little more risk and out-of-pocket costs. With a Medigap Plan N you will have copay's of $20.00 for the doctor visits and a $50.00 for an emergency room visit.
Paying a copay is something that most people are used to, and does add some cost if and when you go to the doctor, but there is another fact of the Plan N that you need to be aware of.
The Plan N does not cover Medicare Part B excess charges, now this could be a big deal or nothing at all. If a doctor accepts Medicare but is not assigned by Medicare he can legally charge you 15% over the Medicare approved amount. **You would then be responsible for that extra cost.

Medicare Assignment means that your doctor, provider, or supplier agrees (or is required by law) to accept the Medicare-approved amount as full payment for covered services.
**Ohio, is one of the the states that do not allow any Part B excess charges. This law is known as the M.O.M law (Medicare Overcharge Measure). This means that doctors must accept Medicare Payment in full according to the Medicare approved payment schedule. With this fact, the Ohio Medicare Supplement Plan N could be a very good fit.
