What is Medigap Plan D?

This plan also offers lower premiums than the more comprehensive plans like Plan F. Medicare Supplement Plan D is one of the few Medicare supplement Plans that offers enrollees Preventive Care Coverage.
Medigap Plan D coverage includes the Basic Benefits that include hospital coinsurance, the Medicare coinsurance for Part B, 365 additional days of hospitalization coverage, and blood coverage for the first three pints. Medigap Plan D also includes skilled nursing coinsurance, the deductible for Part A, and Hospice Care coinsurance.
