Welcome to today’s Cardinal lesson where we delve into the world of Original Medicare and the Medigap Plan G. While this might seem like familiar territory for our regular viewers, our aim today is to provide a more in-depth explanation of what we offer and how it pertains to your Medicare experience.

Understanding Medicare Enrollment:

The first step in your Medicare journey involves enrolling in Part A and Part B. These are foundational components of Medicare, provided by the government, and are prerequisites for further healthcare plans. We have a variety of resources, including shows and videos, to guide you through this process.

The Significance of Medigap Plan G:

Among the ten supplemental plans available post-enrollment in Original Medicare, Plan G stands out due to its comprehensive benefits. Standardized by the government about 30 years ago, these plans are categorized from A to D and beyond, with Plan G being the most beneficial and popular among our clients. It’s noteworthy that Massachusetts, Wisconsin, and Minnesota have unique plans akin to Plan G, but we are equipped to assist you in these states as well.

Why Choose Plan G?

The reason behind the popularity of Plan G is simple: it offers the highest benefits. Especially for clients dealing with IRMAA and other similar expenses, Plan G is a highly recommended option. Hans and Tom, in the video, elaborate further on the distinct advantages of this plan.

Pricing and Comparisons:

One of the key aspects of choosing a plan is understanding its cost, which can vary based on location and age. The pricing is not one-size-fits-all, and on our website, you can run comparisons specific to your demographic details without the need to disclose personal information. This transparency allows for an informed decision-making process.

Covering the Basics of Medicare:

It’s crucial to grasp the core elements of Medicare Parts A and B. For instance, without supplemental insurance, a hospital stay under Medicare could leave you with significant out-of-pocket expenses. This is where the supplemental insurance, or Medigap, comes into play, covering costs that Medicare doesn’t, thereby reducing your financial burden.

The High Deductible Plan G Option:

For those looking for lower premiums, the High Deductible Plan G is an excellent alternative. It operates similarly to the standard Plan G but with a higher deductible, making it a cost-effective choice for many. This option particularly benefits those accustomed to high deductible plans before Medicare.

Healthcare Freedom with Original Medicare and Plan G:

Choosing Original Medicare and Plan G means you have the freedom to select any doctor or hospital across the United States that accepts Medicare. This flexibility is especially valuable for those who prioritize having a wide range of choices in their healthcare providers and treatments. Unlike Medicare Advantage plans, which often have network restrictions, Original Medicare paired with Plan G offers unparalleled access to healthcare services, including renowned research hospitals and specialized treatment centers.

Comparative Pricing Across States:

Pricing for Medigap plans, including Plan G, can vary significantly across different states. Our comprehensive guide provides an overview of these variations, helping you understand the financial implications of your choice. For instance, while North Carolina offers more affordable rates, New York and California have higher premiums. However, irrespective of the state, the coverage offered by Plan G remains consistent, ensuring you get the same level of care and benefits regardless of the price.

Making an Informed Decision:

The decision to choose a Medigap plan like Plan G should be based on a thorough understanding of your personal health needs, financial situation, and the specific benefits each plan offers. Our experts are dedicated to providing you with all the necessary information and support, enabling you to make a well-informed decision about your Medicare coverage.


Our discussion today primarily focused on Medicare and Medigap supplements, particularly Plan G. This is often the starting point for many of our clients who seek our expertise in financial planning and retirement. Remember, choosing the right Medicare plan is a crucial step in securing your healthcare needs during retirement.
