Plan A

Cost is a major concern for many Texas seniors and Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan A* is a practical solution for getting the basic coverage you deserve at an affordable price. With this plan, you can count on extra days of hospital and skilled nursing care after traditional Medicare benefits end as well as 100 percent of any copays and coinsurance costs for hospice care. You pay a small premium, your Medicare Part A and Part B deductibles and any Part B excess charges.


Original Medicare (Part A) pays for hospitalization charges, but only until day 60. Should you need extended hospital care, a Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan can pick up where Original Medicare ends. Plan A covers 100 percent of your hospitalization coinsurance from day 61 through day 90 ($370 a day) and the remainder owed after day 90 ($740 a day). Plan A also pays the cost for an additional 365 days of hospital care after your Medicare Lifetime Reserve benefits end. With plan A, the costs for the first three pints of blood and your Medicare co-payment/coinsurance for hospice care are covered.
