Who Needs Medicare Plan G?

Medicare Plan G is a plan that is specifically tailored to meet the needs of senior citizens who need Medicare benefits.  Often, people are unaware that they qualify for this specific plan because it’s not publicized as much and it is not automatically offered if you were born between 1957-1965. You may have qualified for Medicare Plan G if you are a senior citizen who has limited income, qualifies for Medicaid, or qualifies for certain government programs like SSI.

You should enroll in Medicare Plan G if you:

1) Have limited income and resources;

2) Qualify for Medicaid;

3) Qualify for certain government programs (e.g., SSI);

4) Live in a nursing home and want to stay there after receiving care; or

5) Have been discharged from the hospital and want to receive skilled nursing at home.

How Do You Enroll in Medicare Plan G?


If you’re 65 years old or older and have been receiving Social Security benefits for at least 10 years, then your Medicare eligibility will be automatic. You will receive a letter from the Social Security Administration stating that your Medicare coverage is ready to begin.

In order to enroll in Medicare Supplement Plan G, you must first determine if you are eligible for the plan. If you are covered by another health insurance plan like an employer’s group plan, this means that you are not eligible for Medicare Plan G. The only exception to this is if your other health insurance plan does not cover all of the services that Medicare Plan G covers.
