Medigap Plan L covers benefits in a unique manner than most other Medicare supplement plans, similar to plan K.  This plan covers 100% of the Medicare Part A coinsurance and, after Medicare benefits are exhausted, hospital costs up to an additional 365 days.  The insured is responsible for 75% of the Medicare Part A deductible, Medicare Part B coinsurance/copayment, the first 3 pints of blood, the Medicare Part A hospice care coinsurance/copayment, and the skilled nursing facility care coinsurance.  The Part B deductible, Part B excess charges, and foreign travel emergency benefits are not covered under this plan.

After the yearly out-of-pocket limit and Part B deductible has been met, the Medigap plan will pay for 100% of covered services for the rest of the calendar year.

Plan L offers a higher premium than plan K in most areas, but features lower copayments and a lower maximum out-of-pocket limit.
