Medicare has a number different parts designed to help seniors get the coverage they want. For some seniors, the basic Medicare plan won’t cover them well enough. That Medicare plan contains parts A and B, covering many inpatient and outpatient expenses, like nursing care, hospital stays, medications and doctor’s office visits. But what do other parts of Medicare cover? You might have heard about Medicare Part G, which we will discuss in detail for you here.
This is actually a part of Medicare known as Medicare Plan G. The Part G name is simply a common misconception. So many seniors hear about Plan G and the different parts of Medicare that they can sometimes get them confused with one another.
Plan G is a great health insurance plan, and it is one of the different options for Medicare Supplements, or the Medigap plans. These are complementary health insurance plans that are made to work with the Original Medicare plan and fill in its coverage gaps. Plan G is so popular because it fills in more gaps than any of the other Medicare Supplements.
