Medicare Supplement Plan D
People who have Medicare Insurance often choose supplemental Plan D because they don’t feel it’s necessary to have coverage for the Part B Deductible, Preventative Care, and Part B Excess Charges, and they think taking less coverage will save them in premium costs. Before buying Plan D, it’s wise to compare rates offered by other more comprehensive Medicare Supplemental Insurance Plans, including Plan J. The only way to find lower rates is by shopping around for the best deals.
Areas covered by Plan D Basic benefits include:
* Part B Coinsurance (Usually about 20% of outpatient expenses)
* Hospital Coinsurance
* Hospitalization Coverage of an Additional 365 Days
* Blood Deductible Coverage
Coinsurance for Skilled Nursing Care
- Part A Deductible
- Coverage for Travel Abroad
- At-Home Recovery Expenses
Not Covered by Plan D
- Part B Deductible

In only very rare situations is Plan D recommended. Most people are better served with a more fully comprehensive Tennessee Medicare Supplemental Plan, like Plan J.
