Save Money with a Medicare Select† Option
Medicare Select is an option available on most of our Medicare Supplement plans, but is not available for Plan A and High Deductible Plan F. This option helps you save on premiums when you agree to use one of the hospitals in our Medicare Select Network for non-emergency elective admissions. You get the same solid benefits as our “standard” plans, but your premiums will cost less.

*Plans K-N provide for different cost-sharing than plans A-G.
Plans K and L pay 100% of hospitalization and preventive care Basic Benefits. All other Basic Benefits are paid at 50% (Plan K) and 75% (Plan L). Once you reach the annual limit, the plan pays 100% of the Medicare copayments, coinsurance and deductibles for the rest of the calendar year. The out-of-pocket annual limit does NOT include charges from your provider that exceed Medicare-approved amounts, called “excess charges.” You are responsible for paying excess charges.
Plan N covers Basic Benefits after a $20 copay for office visits and a $50 copay for emergency room visits.
**The out-of-pocket annual limit may increase each year for inflation. (2013 limits shown)
