Medicare Plan F High Deductible Option
Because Medigap Plan F offers extensive coverage, it is the most expensive Medicare supplemental insurance plan. Often the monthly premium is more than many people can afford (plan prices will vary depending on each individual’s circumstances). To offset the high cost and encourage Medicare enrollees to purchase Medigap Plan F, many insurance companies offer a high-deductible version of this plan.
High-deductible means that the monthly cost of the Plan F will be much lower than a regular deductible option, but policy holders will be required to pay $2,110 in deductible payments and fees before Medigap Plan F will begin covering the cost of medical services. With a normal deductible plan, coverage starts immediately with no out-of-pocket costs to the policy holder.
