Medigap Plan L
Medigap Plan L may be a low-cost option for those with low out-of-pocket medical expenses, but are still looking for comprehensive coverage.
Medicare Plan L pays the Part A Hospital coinsurance along with 365 days of additional Hospital coverage after Medicare days are used.
Plan L will cover 75% of Skilled Nursing facility costs up to 100 days.
Medicare Plan L will NOT pay the Medicare Part B annual deductible or excess charges, but it will pay 75% of Part B coinsurance.
There is an out-of-pocket maximum limit of $2,620 in 2018, to minimize the most you will pay out of pocket with a Plan L.
Because Plan L is not as popular as some of the other plans, we find that there may only be a small number of insurance companies offering a Plan L in most states.
Medigap Plan L - Consider this Example:
Barbara has been healthy most of her life and decided to purchase a Plan L Supplemental Policy. She had outpatient surgery to remove skin cell basil melanoma. If Medicare’s approved amount for this procedure is $1,000, then her Medigap Plan L will pay $750, and Barbara is responsible for the remaining $250.
The amount Barbara has paid is considered her out-of-pocket expense. With a Medicare Supplement Plan L, once Barbara’s out-of-pocket expenses reach a maximum of $2,620 in the calendar year, she will no longer share in the expenses, and her Plan L will pay all additional costs.
If your relatively healthy and your living on a fixed income, where “every penny count’s”, Medigap Plan L may be a good option for you.

* Plan F is also offered as a high-
dedutible plan by some issuers in
some states. If you choose this
option, this means you must pay for
Medicare-covered costs (coinsurance,
copayments, deductibles) up to the
deductible amount of $2340 in 2020
before your policy pays anything. Plan C and plan F are only available to those who are not new to Medicare.
** Plan N pays 100% of the Part B coinsurance, except for a copayment of up to $20 for some office visits and up to a $50 copayment for emergency room visits that don't result in an inpatient admission.
*** For Plans K and L, after you meet your out-of-pocket yearly limits and your yearly Part B deductible ($198 for 2020), the Medigap plan pays 100% of covered services for the rest of the calendar year.
