*Note – Plan C has been discontinued as of Jan 1, 2020. Those individuals currently enrolled in Plan C as of Jan 1, 2020 will be able to keep their plan. If you were eligible for Medicare before January 1st, 2020, but not yet enrolled, you may still be able to buy this plan.
Supplement Plan C covers more than most of the other Colorado Supplement Plans do, making it an attractive option for those who want peace of mind that most all costs will be covered under their Medicare Supplement Plan. However, when looking at Supplement Plan C, be aware that it still leaves gaps in what costs it covers.
Medicare Supplement Plan C includes the following benefits:
- Medicare Part A coinsurance for hospitalization in addition to coverage for one additional year after Medicare benefits end
- Medicare Part B coinsurance for medical expenses — usually 20% of Medicare-approved expenses — or co-payments for outpatient services
- The first three pints of blood you receive as a hospital inpatient or outpatient (whereas original Medicare typically covers any pints of blood you receive after the first three)
