Medigap Plan N
Medigap Plan N Overview
Medigap Plan N is deemed one of the most comprehensive coverage plans available amongst the Medigap policies. It is often compared to Medicare Supplement Plan G since the two share similar coverage plans, including Part A coinsurance, deductibles, and hospital costs. Even though the plans are similar, there are a few things that Plan N doesn’t cover that might be important to you. This includes excess charges and copayments.
While it isn’t common to be charged excess for medical services, it still happens throughout the country. Providers who accept Medicare are allowed to charge an additional 15% of the original cost of services if they wish too. If they decide to tack on this extra fee, then you will be responsible for paying. Regarding copayments, the costs are still lower than what they would be without Plan N as many patients have to pay $20 for doctor office visits and up to $50 for emergency room visits.
Since Medigap Plan N does have less coverage options than Plan G, enrolling and monthly premiums tend to be lower. Typically, it is recommended that Plan N is best for somebody who is relatively healthy, doesn’t visit the doctor often, and wants to pay a lower monthly premium.

Medigap Plan N is a great option to provide additional coverage to anyone with an Original Medicare plan.
