Medicare Supplemental Plan C

Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan C covers every penny of what Medicare Insurance approves, up to the payment amount Medicare Insurance approves.

In other words, there are only two instances in which Medicare Supplement Plan C will not cover what is left of your charges after Medicare Insurance pays.

  1. When Medicare doesn’t approve the charge at all.

  2. When your provider charges more than the Medicare Insurance Approved amount. This is because Medicare Supplement Plan C does not cover Part B Excess Charges as shown below.

Medigap Plan C is a good Medicare Supplement Plan to have and many find it to contain complete coverage when their physicians accept Medicare assignment and all their procedures are approved by Medicare Insurance. Before purchasing Medicare Supplemental Plan C, however, Compare the premiums to Plan F and Plan J through multiple Medicare Supplemental Insurance Companies to see if you can get additional benefits for a similar or even lower premium.
