Medicare and You 2019 - Everything you want to know

Medi-gap Plans C and F will no longer be available  to newly eligible Medicare beneficiaries beginning in 2020.  This is because CMS-Medicare decided they want those on Medicare to have more skin in the game, thus they no longer allow the Part B Deductible to be covered.   Those who purchase Plan F, Innovative F, High F or F Extra can keep their plan!

For new enrollees, Plan G has same comprehensive benefits as Medicare Supplement Plan F, but Plan G does not cover the Part B deductible amount. Members are responsible to pay the Part B deductible.

Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act of 2015 (MACRA),
(H.R. 2, Pub.L. 114–10) commonly called the Permanent Doc Fix,

establishes a new way to pay doctors who treat Medicare patients, revising the Balanced Budget Act of 1997. The reform is the largest in scale on the American health care system since the Affordable Care Act in 2010. It fixes the way Medicare doctors are reimbursed, fills in a funding gap and extends a popular children’s insurance program, CHIP.[1]

There MACRA related regulations also address incentives for use of health IT by physicians. Wikipedia
