Medigap Changes January 1, 2020: Plan C and F Not Available to New Beneficiaries.

For individuals newly eligible to Medicare, the Part B deductible cannot be covered. Therefore, the Medicare Supplemental Policies Plan C and F will no longer be an option for newly eligible individuals starting January 1, 2020. However, individuals who already have Plans C and F will be able to keep their current versions of the plans (grandfathered) and individuals eligible for Medicare prior to January 1, 2020, can purchase the current version of Plans C and F on or after January 1, 2020.

Medicare Supplement Policy Plan G will be the most similar option to replace Plan F.
