1 While most Medicare supplement insurance plans do not have an annual out-of-pocket maximum, 2020 Plan K has an out-of-pocket maximum of $5,880 and Plan L has an out-of-pocket maximum of $2,940. Services under Plan K and Plan L that do not count toward out-of-pocket maximums include Part B excess charges and any service not covered by Medicare. After you meet your out-of-pocket yearly limit and your yearly Part B deductible ($198 in 2020), the Medicare Supplement plans pay 100% of covered services for the rest of the calendar year. Exception: Plans K and L will pay 100% of Part B coinsurance for preventive services covered by Medicare.
2 Plan pays Part B coinsurance or copayment except for an insured copay up to $20 for each doctor’s office visit and up to $50 copay for each ER visit that does not result in an inpatient admission.
3 The Excess Charge is limited to 5% in NY. Under OH and PA law, a physician may not charge or collect fees from Medicare patients which exceed the Medicare-approved Part B charge. Plans F and G pay benefits for excess charges when services are rendered in a jurisdiction not having a balance billing law. In TX the Excess Charge is not to exceed 15% over the Medicare-approved amount or any other charge limitation established by the Medicare program or state law. Note that the limiting charge applies only to certain services and does not apply to some supplies and durable medical equipment. VT law generally prohibits a physician from charging more than the Medicare-approved amount. However, there are exceptions and this prohibition may not apply if you receive services out of state.
4 Care needed immediately because of an injury or an illness of sudden and unexpected onset. Benefit is 80% and beneficiaries are responsible for 20% after the $250 annual deductible with a $50,000 lifetime maximum for medically necessary Foreign Travel Emergency Care received outside the U.S that begins during the first 60 days of each trip.
