About the Plan

This plan is ideal for folks who want coverage for many coinsurance payments, yet do not foresee using a lot of health care services. It is reliable coverage at a great price – one of the least expensive Medicare Supplement Plans offered.

Hospitalization Medical Expenses Blood Hospice

Part A coinsurance plus coverage for 365 additional days after Medicare benefits end.

Part B coinsurance (generally 20% of Medicare-approved expenses) or copayments for hospital outpatient services.

First three pints of blood each year.

Part A coinsurance

* A benefit period begins on the first day you receive service as an inpatient in a hospital and ends after you have been out of the hospital and have not received skilled care in any other facility for 60 days in a row.

**NOTICE: When your Medicare Part A hospital benefits are exhausted, the Plan stands in the place of Medicare and will pay whatever amount Medicare would have paid for up to an additional 365 days as provided in the policy’s “Core Benefits.” During this time the hospital is prohibited from billing you for the balance based on any difference between its billed charges and the amount Medicare would have paid.
