Insurance buyers may find it hard to pick which Medicare Supplement Insurance to get because of the wide array of options available in most states. This supplement insurance type known as Medigap is regulated by the federal government. No matter which provider you choose from. The coverage is the same among plans or policies regardless of your chosen provider. Below is a list of Medigap plans that could help you decide which one is best for you:
Plan F – Best for Coverage
The only Medigap plan to offer coverage in each of the benefit areas included by this type of insurance. Plan F members shell out a very minimal amount of expenses. Their Medigap plan covers nearly all healthcare costs not paid by the original Medicare (A & B). As per regulations, it's only available for those eligible before January 1, 2020.
Plan G – Best for New Enrollees
This is similar to Plan F. But it doesn't pay for the Part B deductible of Medicare. The $203 annual payment for 2021 is a small expense compared to other deductibles. Also, Plan G's monthly premiums are lower than those of Plan F.
Plan B – Best for Basic Benefits
It covers three types of out-of-pocket Medicare costs such as:
Covering these three means you may avoid some potential charges.
Plan N – Best for Cost
This plan is best if you want lower monthly premiums. As it pays for most out-of-pocket Medicare costs. That includes all Medicare Part B coinsurance costs. The caveat is that you have to co-pay up to $20 for medical check-ups and up to $50 for emergency room visits.
Plan M and N – Best for Travelers
It covers emergency care available outside U.S. territories. Plan M and N offer the lowest monthly premiums. Compared to other Medigap with foreign travel emergency care coverage. They cover excess charges for Medicare Part B.
Plan K and L – Best for Budgeters
These provide beneficiaries with an extra layer of protection by having annual out-of-pocket limits built into them. Once a member spends the amount of coverage, the plan pays for all covered services—also items for the rest of the year.
The Medigap insurance best for you depends on your health care needs. As well as your spending capacity. Always research first what is appropriate for your situation. Then work with a licensed insurance agent to assess what suits best to your needs.

I never knew that having a medicare supplement plan allows you to cover the things not included in your original insurance plan. My boss is thinking about his retirement and how to deal with his healthcare needs in the future. Maybe we should consult an insurance agent that could set this up for him!
