Medigap Plan K Benefits

Lower Premiums but Fewer Benefits

Medigap Plan K has fewer benefits for a lower monthly premium. Medigap Supplement Plan K gives you the same Part A coinsurance and additional years of hospital coverage as other Medigap plans. Still, you are responsible for 50% of the Part A Hospice care coinsurance and 50% of the Medicare Part A Deductible.

Medigap Plan K coverage splits your medical obligations’ costs with you—50% of the Part A deductible and 50% of your first 3 pints of blood product. Medicare Supplement Plan K covers 50% of your Part B coinsurance or co-payments. Plan K does not cover your Medicare Part B deductible or any excess charges you may incur. Medigap Plan K does not cover any Foreign Emergency Travel expenses either.

Out-of-Pocket Expenses Maximum

Medigap Plan K also has an Out of Pocket Expenses Maximum. In 2021 the out-of-pocket maximum was $6,940, which would be your total out-of-pocket spent – similar to an employer health plan you may have experienced. If you spend more than the out-of-pocket maximum, the insurance policy is required to cover all of your medical expenses for the year. This is a benefit that could certainly come in handy in case of a catastrophic medical event!
