What is a Medicare Supplement Plan?
Medicare Supplement plans (also called Medigap) are private health insurance
plans that are designed to work with or supplement Medicare. These plans are
sold by private insurance companies.
Why consider buying a Medicare Supplement?
To cover coinsurance, co-payments, and deductibles. To potentially have a
100% of your Medicare-approved health insurance costs covered, depending on
which plan you choose. Each Medicare supplement plan must cover the same
benefits. Only the price, underwriting, and customer service will vary from
company to company.
