  1. We’re in Plan F now.

    What’s the difference between F and G extra?

    We tried to get F Extra and were turned down

    • Please review our webpage above and our webpage on Plan F Extra. The main difference in Extra or Innovative is the Hearing Aids, Vision, Teledoc, Over the Counter Medications and Help, I can’t get up. See the link above for the summary of benefits for more detail.

      Right now, Blue Shield is having a “special” and you can get into their Extra Plans, from any other Medi Gap carrier. Email us for details.

      Next year, under the Birthday rule, Extra and Innovative will be considered the same and not better. So, one would be able to switch.

      (M) New or innovative benefits, as described in subdivision (f) of Section 1358.9 and subdivision (f) of Section 1358.91, shall not be included when determining whether benefits are equal to or lesser than those provided by the previous coverage.

      Why are Medi Gap companies offered more benefits?

      One reason is a new buzz word, Social Determinants of Health. Click on the link and check it out.
