Medicare Supplement (Medigap) insurance can help pay some of the health care costs that original Medicare does not cover, like copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles.
Some policies also offer coverage for servies that Original Medicare doesn’t cover, such as medical care when traveling outside the United States. If you currently have existing Medicare, you can then buy a Medicare Supplement Insurance, Medicare will pay its share of the approved expenses for covered health care costs, and then supplemental coverage will then pay its share.
These policies are different than Medicare Advantage Plans. Those plans are ways to get Medicare benefits, while a supplemental policy only supplements your Original Medicare benefits.
Important Things to Know About Medicare Supplement Coverage
- If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan, you can apply for a Medigap policy, but make sure you can leave the Medicare Advantage Plan before your Medigap policy begins.
- You pay the private insurance carrier a monthly premium for your Medigap policy in addition to the monthly Part B premium that you pay to Medicare.
- A Medigap policy covers one person. If you and your spouse both want Medigap coverage, we’ll work with you to setup two separate policies.
- Any standardized Medigap policy is guaranteed renewable even if you have health problems. This means the insurance company can’t cancel your Medigap policy as long as you pay the premium.
