Best Medicare Supplement Plans in Connecticut for 2023

Scene of Connecticut

Medicare Supplement plans in Connecticut, also known as Medigap plans, are designed to help fill the gaps left by Medicare Parts A and B. They can provide coverage for things like co-payments, coinsurance, and deductibles that Medicare does not cover. With nearly 650,000 Medicare-eligible Connecticuters, it’s important to compare different plans to make sure you get the right one for your tailored needs.

In Connecticut, the Best Choice is G or N.

Without context, choosing between Medicare Supplements is like choosing letters from an alphabet soup. In Connecticut, there is Plan A, Plan B, Plan C, Plan D, Plan F, Plan G, Plan K, Plan M, and Plan N. Fortunately, there’s an easy heuristic to decide between them:

All Medicare Supplements with the same plan letter must, by law, offer the same coverage (regardless of carrier or region). This makes them easily comparable. In Connecticut, plans A, B, C, D, K, and M can all be thrown out from consideration because they offer less coverage, and usually cost more than the optimal Plan G or N. Plan F is a unique exception here, which we address below.

Takeaway: Plan G or N offer the most comprehensive coverage for your dollar.

Why Medicare Supplements over Medicare Advantage Plans?

Unlike Medicare Advantage plans, you will be covered by any health provider that accepts Medicare under a Supplement Plan (about 90% of doctors nationwide). So you don’t need to worry about a Carrier network, or getting prior approval for a procedure. The extent of that coverage is the other consideration, and no other Medicare plan covers out-of-pocket expenses as comprehensively as Plan G or N.

What You Need to Know about Plan G in Connecticut:

Again, the benefits of Medicare Supplement Plans are defined by the government, which means the coverage is the same for each plan letter no matter the cost. We recommend you go with the cheapest carrier offering Plan G (which we’ve included below). All you need to worry about paying is your monthly premium and the yearly Part B Deductible of $233 for any Medicare approved medical services.

The average monthly premium in Connecticut for Plan G is $319.26.

If you want the most comprehensive coverage, Plan G is for you. Take a look at what that entails below:

Part A Coinsurance

Part A Hospice Care Coinsurance + Copay

Part A Deductible

Blood (3 Pints)

Part B Coinsurance + Copay

Part B Excess Charge

Part B Deductible

Plan G also offers 80% coverage on foreign travel exchange, which is the highest on Medicare. Since you’ll get this same coverage no matter the monthly premium, we’ve compiled the average cost of Plan G across Connecticut.

Top 5 Cheapest Plan G Options in Connecticut:

  • 1.

    Unitedhealth

    $202.82/month

  • 2.

Should I even consider Plan N in Connecticut?

This depends on your situation. In Connecticut, excess charges are outlawed. That means doctors cannot bill above the Medicare approved rate for a procedure. So if you’re on Plan N, that “gap” in coverage is generally not one you need to worry about. The exception is if you frequently travel or visit another state where they excess charges are legal (in 42 states, they are). We can also help you decide between Plan G and Plan N your specific case.

The average monthly premium for Plan N in Connecticut is $227.25. Same as the other Medicare Supplements, the Plan N we suggest for our clients is the one with the lowest premium, which we’ve included in the Top 5 list below.

If you don’t travel out of state frequently, and premiums in your zip code are lower than those for Plan G, Plan N may be right for you. Take a look at what that entails below:

Part A Coinsurance

Part A Hospice Care Coinsurance + Copay

Part A Deductible

Blood (3 Pints)

Part B Coinsurance + Copay

Part B Excess Charge

Part B Deductible

Top 5 Cheapest Plan N Options in Connecticut:

    Hip Insurance

    $160.00/month

  • 2.

What about Plan F in Connecticut?

Plan F technically offers the most comprehensive coverage of all the Medicare Supplement Plans. However, eligibility for Plan F is closed to people who turned 65 after 2020. If you are eligible, it’s a compelling option, but only if the premium makes sense when comparing against Plan G.

The average monthly premium for Plan F in Connecticut is $381.31.

Here is what Plan F offers:

Part A Coinsurance

Part A Hospice Care Coinsurance + Copay

Part A Deductible

Blood (3 Pints)

Part B Coinsurance + Copay

Part B Excess Charge

Part B Deductible

As you can see, Plan F covers even more potential out-of-pocket expenses than Plan G. Pro Tip: if your Plan F premium is $20 more than your Plan G premium, G becomes the cheaper option because the Part B Deductible is only $226. Plan F also offers 80% coverage on foreign travel exchange, which is the highest on Medicare (same as Plan G). Since you’ll get this same coverage no matter the monthly premium, we’ve compiled the average cost of Plan F across Connecticut.

Top 5 Cheapest Plan F Options in Connecticut:

  • 1.

    Hip Insurance

    $260.00/month

  • 2.

    Unitedhealth

    $272.54/month

  • 3.

    United Serv Automobile Association

    $284.24/month

  • 4.

    Anthem Inc

    $298.39/month

  • 5.

    Globe Life Inc.

    $350.25/month
