Basic Benefits for Supplement Plan A

Supplement plans are required to cover a set of standardized basic benefits set by the government. These Supplemental benefits provide additional coverage to what is covered by Original Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) and Part B (medical insurance and doctor visits).

Medicare Part A Hospital Coinsurance or Deductible

  • For hospital stay days 1 - 60, Plan A pays $0 per day
  • For hospital stay days 61 - 90, Plan A pays $335 per day
  • For hospital stay days 91 - 150, Plan A pays $670 per day
  • For an additional 365 days, Plan A pays 100% of approved expenses
  • After the additional 365 days, Plan A pays $0 per day

Medicare Part A Skilled Nursing Facility Coinsurance

  • For nursing facility stay days 1 - 20, Plan A pays $0 per day
  • For nursing facility stay days 21 - 100, Plan A pays $0 per day
  • After 100 days nursing facility stays, Plan A pays $0 per day

Medicare Part B Coinsurance or Copay

  • Plan A pays $0 until you meet your $185 Part B deductible
  • After Part B deductible is met, Plan A typically pays 20% of the coinsurance. Original Medicare Part B covers the other 80%

Blood Coverage

  • For the first 3 pints of blood, Plan A pays 100% of the cost
  • After the first 3 pints of blood, Plan A pays $0 of the cost because Original Medicare covers 100%
