Medicare Part A and Part B (Original Medicare) can cover much of your doctor and hospital bills, but these plans won’t cover everything. Medicare Supplement Plan L is one of several Medicare Supplement Plans (also called Medigap), purchased through private insurance companies that helps pay for some of the expenses that your Original Medicare plan doesn’t cover.
It’s worth noting, Medicare Supplement Plan L and Plan K are the only two plans that cap healthcare expenses.
What Does Medicare Supplement Plan L Offer?
Medicare Supplement Plan L covers several different things that are not covered by Original Medicare. These include:*
- Medicare Part A coinsurance
- 75% of Medicare Part A deductible
- Medicare Part A hospital costs up to an additional 365 days after Medicare benefits are used up
- 75% of Medicare Part B coinsurance or copayment
- 75% of the first three pints of blood for a medical procedure
- 75% of hospice care coinsurance or copayment
- 75% of skilled nursing facility care coinsurance
Plan L does not cover the Part B deductible or excess charge, and it also does not include foreign travel exchange. After you meet the 2021 out-of-pocket yearly limit of $3,110 (the most you’ll have to pay for covered services during a plan year) and your annual Part B deductible of $203, Medicare Supplement Plan L will pay 100% of covered services for the rest of the calendar year.1,2
