Medicare Supplement

Medicare provides beneficial coverage for health-related expenses, but it does not cover all health care expenses. There are several gaps in Medicare coverage that you either pay for out of pocket or with a private insurance period. A Medicare supplement insurance policy is a health insurance policy also called Medigap sold by private insurance companies to help fill in these gaps.

Although private insurance companies provide Medicare supplement coverage, Medicare supplement insurance plans are strictly regulated by both federal and state governments. Make an informed decision about what is suitable for you. Before you purchase a plan, make sure you understand what your Medicare coverage includes. Then choose a Medicare supplement plan that best fits your needs.
