What is Medicare Supplement Insurance?
Medicare is a federal health insurance program aimed at retirement-age Americans. It helps make health coverage more affordable and less costly than private health insurance. Many people even get part of it premium-free. However, Medicare beneficiaries still have to pay for some costs of health care — like deductibles and coinsurance — on their own. Medicare Supplement Insurance, also known as a Medigap plan, can help cover these expenses.
Medicare Supplement Insurance plans help people enrolled in Original Medicare pay out-of-pocket health insurance expenses, like copays, coinsurance, and deductibles. Original Medicare is comprised of Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B.
Part A is insurance for hospital care and Part B covers doctor and outpatient insurance. If you are enrolled in Medicare Part C, a private alternative to Original Medicare, then you cannot get a Medicare Supplement policy.
Your specific coverage varies depending on what Medicare supplement plan you buy. There are ten standardized Medigap plans, identified in most states by letters: A, B, C, D, F, G, K, L, M and N. (Massachusetts, Minnesota and Wisconsin standardize their Medicare Supplement plans differently.)
Why is Medicare Supplement Insurance important?
With most Medicare supplement plans, you can go to any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare. You’ll give them your Medicare card and your supplement plan ID card.
Original Medicare will pay its share. Your supplement plan will pay your share of the costs, depending on what the plan covers. It may also coordinate payment with Medicare and your health care providers. That means you won’t have to bother with claim filing or paperwork.
Medicare and the options around it can get confusing. Connect with us today if you have any questions about Medicare and Medicare Supplement Insurance.
