Looking for Affordable Medicare Supplement Plans 2019

It is common knowledge that the Original Medicare – Parts A and B pays for health care services and supplies but they cannot pay for everything which is why for those parts that are left, you may want to consider getting a supplemental insurance policy like Medigap. Medigap can be bought from private insurance companies and as long as they are licensed, they can sell you the policy. Among the things that a Medigap policy covers are copayments, coinsurance and deductibles. They also cover your health care needs for when you travel outside the United States.

Let us take a closer look as to how it all works, how to acquire a policy and their coverage.

• Working with Medicare- Supplemental Medicare Supplement Plans 2019 like Medigap are here to co-exist with your original Medicare coverage. They cannot be on their own and so you need to stay enrolled with the original policy.

• Eligibility to Medicare Supplement coverage varies per state. In some states, you may not be able to get coverage if you are under 65 and you have a Medicare plan due to disability, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and end-stage renal disease.

• The coverage of Medigap does not include prescription drugs so if this is something that you want covered, you would have to enroll in a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan. Medigap is here to cover the leftover costs that an Original Medicare will not.

• The way it works is this – the Original Medicare will pay for the cost first and then whatever is left, Medigap will come in to help you with that and fill the gap in costs.
Coverage with every Medicare Supplement Plans 2019 vary so it is also good to understand that there are things that Medigap policies do not cover like:
• Long-term care (care in a nursing home)
• Routine vision or dental care
• Hearing aids
• Eyeglasses
