Plan G is among the Medigap Plans with the broadest benefits. Only Plan F offers more standard benefits. Plan G’s only major area where it lacks coverage is the Medicare Part B deductible. Plan G enrollees are still obligated to pay this deductible on their own.
Plan G includes coverage of excess charges - amounts charged by doctors above the Medicare-approved rate for a medical service. Plan G is one of only two plans that includes coverage of excess charges.

|Medicare Part A Deductible||100% coverage|
|Medicare Part B Deductible||No coverage|
