Many senior citizens have what they call Medicare Supplement Plan F. This Medigap plan is the most comprehensive supplemental Medicare plan, and it is often referred to as the "Cadillac Plan" due to its high level of coverage. This policy is also among the most popular, as it accounts for about 46% of the sales for all Medigap plans.
One of the biggest reasons that senior citizens on Medicare (or disabled individuals) will switch to Medicare supplemental plan f is because of the coverage. Plan F requires no co-pays, no deductibles, and no limited set of doctor's or hospital's to choose from. This makes the plan very appealing.
However, one thing that you must also consider is the pricing of Medicare Supplement Plan F. With its nickname being the "Cadillac Plan", you can also assume that Plan F will be priced like a Cadillac--higher than all the other plans. For people who are not as concerned with the monthly price of insurance, Medigap Plan F can be a great option. However for most people on Medicare, price is a major concern.
That is why we often recommend Medicare supplement plan g. Plan G will offer a very similar level of coverage, although costs about $25-$30 less per month on average. The trade-off is that Plan G requires you to pay a small annual deductible ($140 in 2012). Before you decide to just sign up for the first plan you hear about because it "sounds good", it will pay dividends in the long run to research and truly find the best plan for your individual needs.
The rates and pricing of Medicare supplemental insurance plan f are different between the various companies, so it is also equally important to comparison shop--even if you decide Plan F is right for you. The national prices of the Plan F can range from about $100 per month to well over $500 per month, with the average being in the $150 - $180 monthly range.
