Original Medicare (Part A) pays for hospitalization charges, but only until day 60. Should you need extended hospital care, a Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan can pick up where Original Medicare ends. This plan covers 100 percent of your hospitalization coinsurance from day 61 through day 90 ($370 a day) and the remainder owed after day 90 ($740 a day). This plan also pays the cost for an additional 365 days of hospital care after your Medicare Lifetime Reserve benefits end. With Plan A, the costs for the first three pints of blood and your Medicare copayment/coinsurance for hospice care are covered.
