Florida Blue Medicare Supplement Plan Benefits
Sometimes Medicare Supplement plans are referred to as Medigap plans. This is because they fill in “gaps” for things that are not covered by original Medicare. They work with parts A and B of original Medicare. This is different than Medicare Advantage plans that replace original Medicare. Also, Blue prescription drug plans must be purchased separately with supplemental insurance but might come bundled with Medicare Advantage.
These are some reasons to consider Florida Blue Medicare Supplements over Medicare Advantage plans:
- Benefits tend to stay the same every year.
- Supplements don’t use HMO or PPO networks, so seniors may enjoy better access to specialists and other doctors who choose not to join Medicare Advantage plans.
- Some robust Medicare Supplements can reduce or even eliminate the chance of out-of-pocket costs for covered health services.
All supplements in Florida have to offer the standard benefits that Medicare has devised.
Florida Blue Medicare Supplement Plan levels:
- Florida Blue Plan F
- Florida Blue Plan G
Florida Blue might not offer each of these plan levels in every service area. At the least, they must offer Plan A wherever they do business. They also need to provide either Medicare Supplement plan F or Medicare Supplement plan g, and usually, offer both. As a note, plan F and plan C are the most popular choices in the United States.
As a quick reference, plan A and plan B are usually considered the basic plans that include basic coverage for the most expensive gaps in Medicare. On the other end of the scale, Medigap plan g and Medigap Plan F are considered full options. Plans K through N offers a good selection of benefits but impose some cost-sharing to keep premiums relatively low. There is also a high-deductible version of Florida Blue Medicare Supplement plan F for people who want to maintain premiums low and don’t mind paying a deductible when they need medical services.
Of course, Florida Blue Medicare Supplement plan premiums increase for plan levels that provide more coverage. Medicare Supplement plan g and Medigap Plan F are usually the most expensive. High-deductible plan F is the cheapest. However, many Medicare beneficiaries find that broader coverage helps them save money on medical bills and gives them more doctors and specialists to choose from.
