Medicare Plan G is the most complete Medicare supplement plan available. This Plan specializes in “groups” or groups of coverage options that are not available with other insurance plans.
Medigap Plan G is a combination of the following plans: Medicare Advantage, Medicare Part B, and Medicare Supplement. The differences between Plan G and the other plans are the “blended” solutions to the problems faced by seniors with partial or no Medicare coverage.
Although Medicare Plan G costs more than the other plans, the premiums are much lower than the average Medicare monthly premium. In addition, Medigap Plan G offers special benefits that offset the increased Medicare costs.
Medicare Supplement Plan G gives you everything that Medicare does not cover. This plan provides “category I” Medicare coverage for inpatient hospital expenses, professional fees, in-home health care, and durable medical equipment. However, there are several coverage options available to you. You can get additional benefits or coverage for other “essential” health benefits, prescription drugs, emergency room visits, and home health care services that are not part of the “essential” benefits package.
Medicare Plan G is not available to everyone. Depending on your specific coverage needs, you may be able to find a supplemental plan that provides the coverage you need at a price you can afford. Medicare Part A and Part B must be combined in a single plan. Medicare Plan G does not contain a Medicare Advantage plan. Medicare Part A and Part B must be combined in a single plan
Medicare Plan G can save you money if you qualify for Medicare and already have some coverage. It’s important to remember that all plans have restrictions, exclusions, and limits.

Medicare Part A and Part B are jointly funded by the federal government and each State. Medicare Supplement Plan F is the most expanded plan of any plan. Although the government supplies the funds for Medicare Supplement Plans F and J, the products sold under these plans are sold for private insurance companies.
