Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan C is one of the five Medigap policies that offer nearly all of the basic coverage possible.
Medigap Plan C Coverage
Medicare Supplement Plan C covers the following Medicare expenses:
- Medicare Part A Coinsurance and Hospital Costs
- Medicare Part B Coinsurance and Copayment
- Blood (First 3 Pints)
- Part A Hospice Care Coinsurance or Copayment
- Skilled Nursing Facility Coinsurance
- Medicare Part A Deductible
- Medicare Part B Deductible
- Foreign Travel Emergency (up to plan limits)
Plan C covers all of the basic Medicare benefits, including Part A hospital coinsurance, the Part B deductible, preventative care coinsurance, and more.
What Medicare Supplement Plan C Does NOT Cover
The only expense that Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan C does not cover is the Medicare Part B excess charges. Medicare Part B excess charges are additional charges to the basic Medicare costs for a procedure. There is a 15% limit to how many excess charges a doctor is allowed to tack onto the original Medicare fee. Although it’s not common for doctors to charge excess, Medicare Supplement Plan C will not cover these charges if your doctor includes them.
