What is Medicare Supplemental Insurance (Medigap)?
Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policies are sold by private companies and can help bridge the gap between some of the healthcare costs that original Medicare doesn’t cover. Medigap covers items such as copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles. If you have Medicare insurance and purchase a Medigap policy, Medicare will pay its share of the Medicare-approved amount for covered health care costs. Your Medigap policy then pays its share.
Some Medigap policies also provide coverage for services that original Medicare doesn’t cover, such as coverage when you travel outside of the United States. Each policy offers a variety of options. The licensed insurance agents at Gullborg Insurance, Inc. would be happy to consult with you to assist you with determining which Medigap policy will best meet your needs.
Learn the Difference: Medigap Versus Medicare Advantage Plans
It is important to learn the difference between Medigap policies and Medicare Advantage Plans. While a Medigap policy only supplements your original Medicare coverage, a Medicare Advantage Plan is a way of receiving all of your Medicare benefits. Medicare Advantage Plans are offered by private insurance companies that contract with Medicare to provide you with all of your Medicare Part A and Part B benefits. Medicare Advantage Plans include:
- Health Maintenance Organizations (HMOs)
- Preferred Provider Organizations (PPOs)
- Private Fee-for-Service Plans
- Special Needs Plans
- Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans
If you are enrolled in a Medicare Advantage Plan, most Medicare services are covered through the plan and aren’t paid for under original Medicare. Most Medicare Advantage Plans also offer prescription drug coverage.
