Medicare Costs at a Glance
In general, Medicare Parts A & B pays 80% coinsurance of your hospital & medical bills; You’ll pay the remaining 20% coinsurance of the bills plus deductibles and copays which vary depending on the Medicare approved service.
Most people choose to add a Medicare Supplement Plan (Medigap) to help pay for ALL or SOME of your out-of-pocket costs for Medicare approved services.
If you choose to “REPLACE” Medicare Parts A & B with alternative coverage called an Advantage Plan then you must follow the insurance company’s specific plan out-of-pocket cost structure.
