What is a Medigap Insurance Coverage Plan?
A Medigap Insurance Coverage Plan is extra health insurance you purchase from a major insurance company that pays your health costs that are not covered by Medicare. These plans cover deductibles, co-payments, co-insurance and even health care you may receive while traveling outside of the United States. Some Medigap supplement plans even cover certain health services that traditional Medicare does not.
What are my plan options?
In most states, there are 10 standardized plan options. Plan F is the most popular option and is the only one that includes all 9 Medigap benefits.
How are plans priced?
Insurers can charge you different prices based on the type of plan you buy. Your health status may also affect your prices if you are outside of your open enrollment period.
Is Medigap Supplement Insurance the same as a Medicare Advantage plan?
No. Medigap Supplement Insurance Policies help cover Medicare Part A & B out-of-pocket costs. Medicare Advantage Plans are an alternative way to get your Medicare coverage and, in some cases, additional benefits.
When can I buy a Medigap Supplement Insurance Policy?
Any time after you are enrolled in Medicare Parts A & B. You do not have to wait for Open Enrollment to buy a policy. The best time to buy is in the first 6 months after you are both 65 years old and enrolled in Medicare Parts A & B.
