Equitable Medicare Supplement Plan G
Plan G is the most popular plan that Equitable offers. We recommend Plan G because it provides the most value vs Plan F, for reasons explained here. On average, Plan G offers more rate stability than Plan F.
The only benefit difference between F and G is an annual deductible of $198 per year on Plan G. This is the Part B deductible and is associated with doctor visits and outpatient services. The premium difference between Plan F and G is often $300+ per year. For example; $300 – $198 = $117 in net savings on Plan G, plus better long-term rate stability.
Equitable Medicare Supplement Plan N
Plan N is the third most popular plan offered by Equitable Life and Casualty. Plan N comes with more out-of-pocket costs than Plan F and G. This can be a more affordable solution for those looking to save money on premiums. The out-of-pocket costs associated with Plan N are:
- $0-$20 co-pay at an office visit
- $198 annual deductible in 2020
- Part B excess charges not covered
- $50 copay at the E.R. (waived if admitted)
