How To Navigate Through AARP Plan G

Planning for healthcare coverage is complicated, considering that different options are available. Among the many Medicare Supplement plans, AARP’s Plan G is popular for its comprehensive coverage and benefits. The plan offers similar coverage to Plan F, but you are expected to pay the Medicare Plan B annual deductions before Plan G starts paying the Plan B costs. It is ideal for anyone interested in low premiums and can pay Plan B when needed.

Understanding AARP Medicare Supplement Plan G

The AARP Medicare Supplement plan G provides extensive coverage, including co-payments, deductibles, and excess charges that Medicare Part A and B do not cover.

Here’s a breakdown of what AARP Plan G covers:

  • Medicare Part A coinsurance and hospital costs: Plan G covers the coinsurance and hospital expenses not covered by Medicare Part A after the initial deductible.

  • Blood transfusions
  • Skilled nursing facility care coinsurance
  • Hospice care coinsurance or copayment
