Medicare Supplement Plan B
Medicare Supplemental Insurance Plan B is intended to extend basic benefits covering hospitalization and medical expenses. Outside of the basic coverage, this plan also has slightly enhanced benefits for hospitalization. If you are looking for more coverage than Medicare, especially in terms of hospitalization, at a still reasonable price this plan may be your best choice.
Here is what Supplement Plan B provides coverage in:
- Hospitalization: The Plan covers Part A coinsurance plus an additional 365 days extend from the end of Medicare benefits
- Medical Expenses: The plan covers Part B coinsurance (20 percent of approved Medicare expenses) or copayments on outpatient hospital service
- Blood: The plan covers the first three pints of blood in a year and the Medicare Part A deductible for hospitalization.
