If you’re looking for a plan that covers most of your Medicare-approved expenses, Medicare Supplement Plan C might be right for you. Only Medicare Supplement Plan F offers more coverage. Medicare Supplement Plan C includes:

  • The benefits offered with Medicare Supplement Plan A
    • Hospitalization copayments and coinsurance
    • 365 additional days of hospitalization after Original Medicare benefits end
    • Care in a hospice facility
    • Up to three pints of blood from a blood bank annually
    • Other medical expenses for Medicare-approved services/supplies
  • Skilled nursing facility coverage for up to 100 days
  • Emergency medical care benefits while traveling outside the United States.
  • Medicare Part A and Part B deductible coverage

Coverage for Skilled Nursing Facility Care

Original Medicare covers skilled nursing facility care if you have been in a hospital for at least three days and enter a Medicare-approved facility within 30 days of your hospital discharge. Here’s an example of how Original Medicare and Medicare Supplement Plan C work together to pay for skilled nursing facility care:

  • First 20 days of skilled nursing care – Original Medicare covers all approved amounts
  • Day 21 through 100 – Medicare covers your costs except for $167.50 a day. Plan C covers the $167.50 a day.
  • Day 101 and beyond – Original Medicare and Medicare Supplement Plan C don’t cover these expenses. You will be responsible for paying 100 percent of the costs.

Foreign Travel Emergency Medical Care Benefits

Medicare Supplement Plan C helps pay for medically-necessary emergency care services during the first 60 days of each trip outside the United States.

Original Medicare does not cover any of these costs. Plan C covers 80 percent of these costs (up to $50,000 over your lifetime) after you pay your $250 deductible.
