Medicare Supplemental Plan B

Standardized Medicare Supplement Plan B is available in most states. It covers Basic Benefits as described below and Skilled Nursing Co-Insurance but nothing else. In some rare cases, the premium for a Medicare Supplemental Plan B may make it worth taking on the risk of those things not covered. However, most people find a better alternative than Medigap Plan B by choosing Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans D, G, H or I at a similar price when they shop around for Medicare Supplement Insurance.

An even better option is to Compare Rates on Medicare Supplement Plans F and J as they offer the most comprehensive coverage and often at prices similar or even less than the above mentioned plans.

Basic Benefits:

  • Part B Coinsurance (Generally 20% of outpatient expenses)
