Why go for Medicare Supplement plans?
Original Medicare is crucial, as it pays for several healthcare services and supplies. However, it does not cover all services and that is when a Supplement Plan comes into picture. Medicare Supplement polices are sold by private insurance companies and they assist in paying certain health care costs not covered under original Medicare, such as deductibles, copayments and coinsurance. These policies are better known as Medigap policies.
When an individual purchases a Medigap policy when having the original Medicare, the Medicare will pay the share of approved amount for health care costs that are covered. The Medigap policy then pays its share, in some cases including those services which are not being covered by original Medicare. One has to pay only the premiums of the Medigap Policy.
