Health Net Medicare Supplement Plan N

Health Net now has a Medicare Supplement Plan N in California.  Plan N like all of the other Medicare Supplement plans provide very comprehensive medical coverage, along with freedom of choice with all doctor nationwide who accept Medicare. That is nearly 95% of all doctors.

The Most Popular Plans:  F, G, N

  • Plan F = 100% hospital coverage – 100% outpatient.  No deductibles, copays or percentages.
  • Plan G = 100% hospital coverage – $226 annual outpatient deductible then 100% coverage.
  • Plan N = 100% hospital – $226 outpatient deductible then $20 copay per outpatient visit.

Medicare Part D Rx coverage – Medicare Supplement policies do not include Rx coverage, so you will need to add a Medicare Part D Rx plan to help pay for your prescription costs.  There are typically 30 plans in each county.  Please feel free to contact me and I can run the comparison for you to see which plan provides the best overall coverage for your medication list.

The plan N deductible is actually the Medicare Part B deductible which is not covered by Plan N.  Since Plan N does not pay for the Medicare Part B deductible, the deductible amount may change from time to time.  Next year may stay the same or possible go up.  Regardless of possible changes in the future, Plan N is still a very good value.  Hospital coverage is payed at 100% and the 20% outpatient charges are also covered by Plan N.

BIRTHDAY RULE  –  Remember, the easiest time to switch Medicare Supplement companies is from your birthday and moving forward 30 days.  In California this is called the Birthday Rule.  Switch to a Health Net plan during this time, it’s guaranteed.  If you are a current medicare supplement member with another company you can switch to one of the Health Net plans regardless of your current health status.  Move to a plan with the same benefits or to one with a lower level of coverage.

No Cost Help … there is no charge for my services.  The insurance companies provide a fee for me to help with coverage options, enrollment and service.
