Medigap Plan L

Medicare Supplement Plan L

Medigap Plan L not only covers a percentage of your out-of-pocket expenses left over by Original Medicare, but it also features an annual out-of-pocket maximum limit of $2,780 (in 2019).

Plan L is only one of two Medicare Supplement insurance policies that feature this out-of-pocket limit. Because of this popular feature and lower premiums, it may be worth the extra cost-sharing for Medicare beneficiaries.

What does Medigap Plan L cover?
Along with the out-of-pocket maximum ($2,780 in 2019), Medicare Supplement Plan L also features 75% coverage of these benefits:
  • Medicare Part B coinsurance or copayment
  • Part A hospice care coinsurance or copayment
  • Medicare Part A deductible
  • First three pints of blood used in a medical procedure
  • Skilled nursing facility care coinsurance
It also covers 100% of Medicare Part A coinsurance and hospital costs up to one year after Original Medicare benefits are used up. Because of the portion of cost-sharing, Medigap Plan L policies have lower premiums than other supplement plans, like Plan F, that cover all leftover costs by Original Medicare.
