If you’re thinking about getting Medicare supplement insurance, you’ll want to know what it is and what it covers. You may be wondering if this coverage will cost you more than traditional Medicare, or whether or not it’s even worth the cost. In this guide, we’ll cover everything from eligibility requirements and how much a Medigap plan will cost to financial assistance programs that could help pay for your insurance.
What Is Medicare Supplement Insurance?
Medicare supplement insurance is a type of insurance that helps pay for some of the things Medicare doesn’t cover. The most common areas covered include:
- Hospital expenses, including surgical procedures and inpatient stays
- Out-of-pocket costs (such as deductibles, co-pays and coinsurance)
Medicare supplement plans also have other benefits like discounts on brand name prescriptions or free gym memberships.
Who Qualifies For Medicare Supplement Insurance?
If you have Medicare Part B, and paid the premium for at least six months, you qualify for Medicare supplement insurance.
If you’re not enrolled in Medicare but are over the age of 65 or have other conditions that prevent you from working and paying premiums for Part A and Part B (for example: blindness), then this could be an option for you.
Do I Really Need A Medicare Supplement Plan?
Medicare supplement insurance is a type of insurance that helps you pay for the costs that Medicare doesn’t cover. Medigap plans are standardized and are offered by private insurance companies.
Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans: It’s not unusual for people to think they don’t need a Medicare supplement plan, but if you’re over 65 or have an illness or disability (like cancer), then it might be worth considering getting one.
Are There Any Other Types Of Coverage My Employer Offers That I Should Know About?
You may also be covered by your employer’s health insurance or an employee group plan. If you are covered under one of these plans, you will receive the same benefits as if you were enrolled in Medicare Supplement Insurance. If not, please see our page on enrolling in Medicare Supplement Insurance for more information about how to do so.
Do I Qualify For Financial Assistance To Help Pay For It?
Medicare supplement insurance is not free, and it isn’t part of Medicare. Medicare Supplement Insurance (MSP) is a private policy that you buy on your own and can be used to cover the cost of medical expenses not covered by your Original Medicare coverage.
Medicare Supplements are available in all 50 states, but they may vary by state subject to certain limitations depending on where you live.
How Much Does A Medicare Supplement Plan Cost?
The average cost of a Medicare supplement policy is about $200 per month. You can find out how much your policy will cost by comparing plans online or calling a licensed insurance agent to help you find the right plan.
