Medicare Supplement Plan A helps cover a few of the out of pocket costs that Original Medicare doesn’t pay for. Of all Medigap plans, Medigap Plan A covers the least amount of benefits. However, one of the benefits it does cover is one that could cost you the most out of pocket.
Medicare Supplement Plan A – Core Policy Benefits
Medicare Plan A has the least amount of benefits, it only covers what is considered the core policy benefits. Core policy benefits are covered under all Medicare Supplement plans. Meaning, there are more benefits Plan A doesn’t cover, then there are benefits that it does cover.
What Doesn’t Medicare Plan A Cover?
Some benefits Plan A doesn’t cover, that other Medigap plans do, include the Part A deductible, Part B deductible, Skilled Nursing Care coinsurance, excess charges, and foreign travel emergency coverage.
Who Plan A is Ideal For
Those looking for a lower monthly premium
People who aren’t concerned about out of pocket hospital costs
Those who do not travel outside the United States

Plan A for Those Under 65
If you’re on Medicare due to a disability, you may find that Plan A is one of the few Medigap plans available to you in your state. However, you’ll find that in most cases, the premium for Plan A to those under 65 will be at least double, if not triple, what it would be for someone over 65.
This is due to most beneficiaries on disability having higher medical costs than someone who ages into Medicare at 65.
Are Medigap Plan A & Medicare Part A the Same Thing?
No, Plan A & Part A are not the same. When it comes to Medicare, any time you’re talking about a Part, you’re referring to Original Medicare. When you’re talking about a Plan, you’re referring to a supplement plan.
Medicare Part A is your inpatient Medicare coverage, Medigap Plan A is supplemental coverage that will pay for some out of pocket expenses your Part A doesn’t cover.
In which Medicare Supplemental policies are the core benefits found?
All Medicare supplemental policies cover the core policy benefits, including Plan A. In fact, Plan A ONLY covers the core policy benefits.
How many pints of blood will be paid for by Medicare Supplement core benefits?
Medicare Supplement core policy benefits will pay for the first 3 pints of blood.
