Plan N is the last of the 10 standard plan designs for Medicare Supplement insurance (also known as Medigap insurance). Plan N covers many of the cost- sharing (i.e. out-of-pocket expenses) for Medicare services. It is important to note that for Part B medical services some types of doctor visits can result in a charge up to $20 and some emergency room visits can result in a charge up to $50. Other Part B medical services have the out-of-pocket costs fully paid for by Plan N.
