Medicare Supplement Plan D

Not to be confused with Medicare Part D for prescription drug coverage, Medicare supplement or Medigap Plan D used to be a fairly popular plan many years ago.  And while it’s trying to make a comeback due to the recent MACRA legislation, availability is still quite limited.  Plan D may not be the most robust of Medicare supplement plans, but it still offers excellent coverage and is generally one of the more cost-effective plans of choice.  As a matter of fact, Plan D covers most of the same benefits Plan C does, with exception only to the Part B deductible.

As you can see in the chart above, Medicare Supplement Plan D will provide you with cost-effective coverage for the following expenses:

  • Medicare Part A coinsurance for inpatient hospital stays including an additional 365 days after your Medicare benefits are exhausted.
  • Medicare Part B coinsurance for doctors and outpatient medical services.
  • Medicare Part A copayment for hospice services.
  • The first three pints of blood needed for any medical procedure.
  • Medicare copay for skilled nursing facility stays.
  • Part A deductible80% of Foreign Travel Emergency up to a lifetime benefit of $50,000.
