If you agree to share some of the costs of your healthcare, Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan N* from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas, A Division of Health Care Service Corporation is a practical choice. With 100 percent coverage for your Part A deductible, hospitalization coinsurance, foreign travel emergency care, skilled nursing co-payment, and more. This plan provides a workable solution for adding to your Original Medicare benefits. Here is a more detailed description of the benefits and costs you can expect.


As a senior looking for dependable health care at a moderate price, Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan N may be the right choice. Provides full coverage for your Part A deductible ($1,600) and 100 percent of any hospitalization coinsurance after Medicare benefits end. That means on day 61 when Medicare stops paying.
