Costs and Coverage
Q: What kind of out-of-pocket costs do Medicare supplement plans cover?
A: Medicare supplement plans differ from plan to plan, but they all offer the same basic benefits. For example, they provide coinsurance for Medicare Part A hospitalization costs and generally cover about 20 percent of Medicare Part B expenses. Basic benefits under most plans also pay for the first three pints of blood each year, in addition to providing Part A coinsurance for hospice care.
Q: Are prescription drugs covered under Medicare supplement plans?
A: By law, Medicare supplement insurance plans no longer cover prescription drugs. Prescription drug coverage, also known as Medicare Part D, is available separately through private insurance companies approved by Medicare. There is a choice of plans available, and plans vary from insurer to insurer.
