Forethought Life Medicare Supplement Plan C for Arizona is one of the most complete of the ten standardized Medicare Supplements. In fact, only Plan F offers more health insurance coverage. Plan C is similar to Plan F in that it fills the gaps on most of Medicare's approved expenses.
Two things go uncovered by a Plan C policy. The first is Medicare Part B excess charges. These are doctor expenses over what Medicare will pay for a service. When excess charges occur they are charged directly to the patient. The second exclusion is home recovery costs associated with the recovery process after hospitalization.
Plan C covers the following Medicare expenses:
- Medicare Part A hospital coinsurance and hospital costs up to 365 days after Original Medicare benefits are exhausted
- Part A hospice care coinsurance payment or co-payment
- Medicare Part B co-payment or coinsurance payment
- Part B preventive care coinsurance payment
- First three pints of blood for a medical procedure
- Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) care coinsurance
- Medicare Part A deductible costs
- Medicare Part B deductible costs
- Foreign travel emergency coverage (up to plan limits)
Coverage and Costs
Forethought Life Medicare Supplement Plan C is comprehensive in its coverage, and it may be a preferable option for those in need of comprehensive coverage. The cost of Plan C varies by insurance carrier, so we recommend that you shop around to find the policy that best fits your budget.
Even though this Plan C is extensive in its coverage, don't over-look what's not covered when you analyze the costs and benefits. If you visit the doctor frequently, Plan F or Plan G may be a better choice.
