Never Pay a Doctor Copay
The reason Medicare Plan F is so popular is that it will pay for all of the gaps in Original Medicare Part A and Part B, including both your hospital and outpatient deductibles. Plan F even pays the 20% that Part B does not cover. This means you pay zero out-of-pocket at your doctor’s office. It’s easy to see why a lot of people think Plan F is the best. *Plan F also has a high-deductible option. If you choose the high-deductible option on Medicare Supplement Plan F, you have to pay a deductible of $2,240 for 2018 before the plan pays anything. This amount can go up each year. High-deductible policies have lower premiums, but if you become sick, you’ll have higher out-of-pocket costs. This plan isn’t available if you turned 65 on or after January 1, 2020, and to some people under age 65.
