Medicare supplements plans are for medicare beneficiaries who want flexibility and fixed costs for their health plan.  A Medicare Supplement isnurance policy helps you manage and budget your health care expenses.

Filling in the gaps

Medicare provides beneifical cover for health related expenses, but it does not cover all health care expenses.  There are a number of gaps in Medicare coverage that you either pay for out of pocket or with private insurance.  A Medicare Supplement insurance policy is a health insurance policy (also called Medigap) sold by a private insurance company to help fill in those gaps.

Although private insurance companies provide Medicare Supplement coverage, Medicare Supplement insurance plans are strictly regulated by both federal and state government.  Make an informed choice about what is right for you.  Before you purchase a plan, make sure you understand what your Medicare coverage includes, then choose a Medicare Supplement plan that best fits your needs.
