Let’s Look Closely at Medicare Supplement Plan L

Medigap Plan L provides a much lower monthly premium with many of the same standard benefits as other Medigap plans.  Plan L covers less of the co-payments and co-insurance than the other supplemental plans and therefore is able to provide this lower premium. There is an annual out-of-pocket maximum that you are covered by which helps limit the amount you are required to pay should you need extra care.

This plan offers more affordability from a premium standpoint yet still offers a reasonable amount of coverage for many services. This plan is similar to Plan K but covers a greater percentage of your costs with a lower annual out-of-pocket amount while the monthly premium is only a bit higher.
