Medigap Plan B Cost

Medigap Plan B has a lower monthly premium than many other Medicare supplemental insurance plans. It is a great option for those who need basic costs covered without paying for things you may not use.

Your monthly premium for Medigap Plan B depends on the provider you choose. While all companies offer the same coverage, your health, age, and location may adjust costs.

Medigap Plan B Comparison

Compared to other plans, Medigap Plan B offers basic necessary coverage. It has slightly more coverage than Plan A, as it also covers your Medicare Part A deductible. It does not cover:

  • Part B Deductible
  • Skilled Nursing Care Facility Coinsurance
  • Part B Excess Charges
  • Foreign Travel Emergency Care

If you feel you need these costs covered, you may want to consider a different Medigap plan. If you are not concerned about these costs, then Medigap Plan B is a great option for you.
