This plan offers a basic amount of additional coverage for costs not covered by Original Medicare. Where Plan F provides the highest level of coverage, Plan A provides the lowest.

You pay both the Part A (Hospital) and Part B (Medical) deductibles. After that, Medicare Supplement Plan A will kick in to cover remaining costs for hospital and medical expenses, including up to 3 pints of blood and copays and coinsurance related to hospice care.

If you anticipate having adequate coverage with Original Medicare Parts A and B, but want just a little extra protection, then this plan may be a good fit.

Review the chart below for all the details of Plan A coverage or explore other Medicare Supplement plans.
