There are 12 standardized Medicare Supplement plans “A” through “L”.
The benefits of each plan are different, with the exception that all plans are required to cover the “Basic Benefits” which are identified below. Medicare standardized the plans in 1990 to limit the consumer’s confusion when comparing coverage offered by different insurance companies. With standardization, the consumer can easily compare the benefits and the cost between the different insurance companies offering the plans. The words "Medicare supplement" and MediGap plans are interchangeable and mean exactly the same thing. The descriptions of benefits of each of these plans are in the table below.

How to read the chart: If a check mark appears in the column, this means that the MediGap policy covers that benefit up to 100% of the Medicare-approved amount. If a column lists a percentage, this means the MediGap policy covers that benefit at that percentage rate of the Medicare-approved amount. If no percentage appears or if the column is blank, this means the MediGap policy doesn't cover that benefit. Note: The coverage of coinsurance only begins after you have paid the deductible on plans K & L. This does not apply to the Medicare Part B excess charges in Plan G.

*Medicare Supplement Plans F and J also have a high deductible option. We don't recommend the high deductible plans. If you select the high deductible plans you have to pay the first $2,000 (deductible in 2010) in MediGap-covered costs before the MediGap policy pays anything. You must also pay a separate deductible for foreign travel emergency ($250 per year).

**After you meet your out-of-pocket yearly limit and your $155 yearly Part B deductible, the plan pays 100% of covered services for the rest of the calendar year.
