Medicare Supplement plans are offered through private insurance companies and are sometimes referred to as “Medigap” plans because they help to fill in some or all of the gaps that Original Medicare Parts A & B do not cover – like deductibles, co-payments, and co-insurance.
Medicare Supplement plans are secondary to Original Medicare Parts A & B, meaning you can add a Medicare Supplement plan to Original Medicare to help pay for costs not covered.
Medicare Supplement plans have monthly premiums, which vary by plan. You must always continue to pay your monthly Part B premium.
To be eligible for Medicare Supplement, you must:
- be enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B
- permanently live in the state in which you are applying for coverage
- you may or may not have to answer health questions, depending on when you apply for coverage
