Medicare supplement insurance
Sometimes called Medigap or Med Supp, is private health insurance that helps cover some of the gaps in Medicare coverage.
Medicare is the federal program of hospital and medical insurance primarily for people age 65 and over who are not covered by an employer’s plan. But Medicare doesn’t cover all medical expenses. That’s where Med Supp comes in.
All Medicare supplement policies must cover certain expenses. There are government designed standard Medicare supplement policies, designated by the letters A through N. With these standardized policies, it is much easier to compare the costs of policies issued by different insurers. While all standard policies may not be available to you, Plan A must be made available to Medicare recipients everywhere.
Insurers are not permitted to sell policies that duplicate benefits you already receive under Medicare or other health insurance policies. If you decide to replace an existing Medicare supplement policy – and you should do so only after careful evaluation – you must sign a statement that you intend to replace your current policy and that you will not keep both policies in force.
People who are 65 or older can buy Medicare supplement insurance without having to worry about being rejected for existing medical problems, so long as they apply within six months after enrolling in Medicare.
The Prescription part of Medicare is also known as Part D. We offer a variety of options as far as these plans go because it will truly depend on how many Rx you are on to find the correct plan for you.
