Medicare doesn’t cover your healthcare in full; there are gaps. By knowing the top three Medicare Supplement plans for 2021, you ensure you’re getting the best coverage. The term “Medigap” describes a Medicare Supplement policy. A Medigap plan helps cover copays, coinsurance, deductibles, and extended hospital visits. You want Medigap because Medicare isn’t free.
Top 3 Medicare Supplement Plans for 2021

Plan F is the most comprehensive policy you can purchase. It’s the only plan with 100% coverage outside your monthly premium.
This plan is an excellent choice for those who:
Frequent doctors’ offices and hospitals
Live in a state that allows excess charges (if your state allows excess charges, it doesn’t mean your doctor charges them)
Often travels outside the U.S.
For those eligible, there is a value-added version of this plan. Plan F also comes with a high-deductible version.
High Deductible Plan F
High deductible Plan F has the same benefits as standard Plan F. But, there’s a $2,340 deductible that you must meet before all your coverage kicks in. This deductible makes the monthly premium significantly lower than the standard Plan F premium.
High Deductible Plan F is the best choice for those who:
Are looking for a lower premium
Want comprehensive coverage
Want peace of mind when it comes to medical expenses
Plan G replicates Plan F. The only difference is that it does not cover the Part B deductible.
Plan G is a wise choice for those who:
Don’t want surprise out-of-pocket hospital costs
Want rate increases that don’t catch them by surprise
Like to travel outside of the United States
Live in a state that allows excess charges
High-Deductible Plan G
High Deductible Plan G is a newer plan that was recently introduced. It covers the same exact benefits as the standard Plan G but comes with the same high deductible as High Deductible Plan F.
High Deductible Plan G is a more affordable option for those who:
Are not thrilled about Plan G’s premium
Are looking for the same benefits under Plan G listed above
Plan N has the lowest premium out of the top 3 Medicare Supplement plans in 2021.
Plan N is a top choice for those who:
Are looking for a relatively low monthly premium
Are okay with small copayments
Are not concerned about excess charges
This plan requires you to pay small copayments when you receive certain services, such as $20 at the doctor and $50 for an emergency visit. However, if you visit one of your local urgent care facilities, you won’t have any copays. This particular plan doesn’t cover the excess charges. However, Part B excess charges are prohibited in the following states: Connecticut, New York, Ohio, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Vermont, Rhode Island, and Pennsylvania. If you’re comfortable with a few copayments in exchange for a lower premium, this could be the plan for you.
The Secret to a Lower Medigap Premium
The secret to getting the lowest Medigap premium is to enroll as soon as your Part B becomes active. When you first become eligible for Medicare, you qualify for a Guaranteed Issue. With Guaranteed Issue Rights, you get the best premium, and you’re not charged based on health conditions. If you decide to change your Medigap plan in the future, you could incur a higher rate based on pre-existing conditions.
