Central States Medicare Supplement Plan F vs. Competition
The following table shows how Central States's Medicare Supplement Plan F stacks up with the competition.
Coverage and Costs
Central States Medicare Supplement Plan F may offer expansive coverage, but it does not cover everything. Beneficiaries are still required to pay their Medicare Part B premium payments each month, and you may have a Part A premium if you did not pay Social Security taxes for at least 40 calendar quarters (10 years).
Like all other Plan F supplements, this policy covers the gaps in your major medical expenses, but it does not pay for prescriptions, hearing, vision, dental and other healthcare needs not covered by Original Medicare.
