Supplement Plan Comparison
Medicare Supplement plans, also known as Medigap, are provided by private insurance companies and they help to offset the out-of-pocket costs associated with Original Medicare, such as copayments, coinsurance, and emergency care costs outside the country.
When you buy a Medicare Supplement plan, you can get extra help with Medicare Part A and Part B deductibles, copayments, and coinsurance costs. Supplement plans are standardized in every state where they’re available and are labeled from Plan A to Plan N. Medigap policies offer various benefits and have different plan premiums. In this article, we’ll make a comparison of the ten Medicare Supplement plans.
