Medigap Plan G is a popular option for people who want lower premiums than Plan F. They are willing to pay the once-annual Medicare Part B deductible in exchange for a lower monthly premium. Often when you run the numbers Plan G is actually a better value. Also, Plan G is not being phased out in 2020 like Plan F is for new enrollees.
What Will it Cover?
When you purchase your Medigap Plan G in Texas, you can use it anywhere in the country that accepts Medicare. You can use it to pay for hospital costs, skilled nursing, or even hospice. Along with hospital care, it will also cover outpatient services like doctor visits, lab work, medical supplies, surgeries and much more!
As with any Medigap plan, Medicare will pay first and then your Plan G will cover the rest.
Medigap Rates in Texas
We’ve noticed that Plan G seems to have lower rate increases from year to year than Plan F. This is probably because you cannot get a Plan G under guaranteed issue rules. People must either be in their one-time open enrollment window, or they can apply with underwriting. It therefore attracts a healthier crowd with less medical claims.
