Plan N offers the same coverage as Plan G except the policy does not cover the following:
- Part B deductible of $203 in 2021

Transamerica Medigap Plan G or Plan N
When choosing between Medicare supplement Plan G or Plan F, you need to look at your long-term plan and short-term plan. Although Plan N may seem like the more affordable choice, saving you money each month, it can leave some gaps in your coverage such as copays and Part B excess charges. With Plan N, you’ll have to pay for doctor’s visits and emergency room copays. With Plan G, all of that is covered.
If you are expected to need more medical care in the future, then Plan G’s comprehensive Medicare supplement plan is best for you. However, if you don’t frequent the doctors or specialist, a good short term plan would be to sign up for Plan N.
