 * There is also a high-deductible version of Plan F where beneficiaries pay a deductible of $2,180 in 2016 before the Medigap plan begins to cover costs.

***Plan N pays 100% of the Medicare Part B coinsurance costs, with the exception of a copayment of up to $20 for some office visits and up to $50 for emergency room visits that don't result in the beneficiary being admitted as an inpatient.
