What is Medigap Insurance?

A Medigap Insurance policy (also called “Medicare Supplement Insurance”) is a private Medicare health insurance plan that is designed to supplement Original Medicare. Meaning it helps pay some of the health care costs (“gaps”) that Original Medicare doesn’t cover (like copayments, coinsurance and deductibles).If you are in Original Medicare and you have a Medigap policy, Medicare will pay its share of the Medicare approved amounts for covered health care costs. Then your Medigap Insurance plan pays its share.(Note: Medicare doesn’t pay any of the cost for you to get a Medigap Insurance policy.)

All Medigap Insurance policies must follow federal and state laws designed to protect you and it must be clearly identified as “Medicare Supplement Insurance.” Medigap companies can only sell you a “standardized” Medigap Insurance policy identified by letters A thru N. Each standardized Medigap Insurance policy must offer the basic benefits, no matter what insurance company sells it.

The plans are all labeled with one of the following letters; Plan A, B, C, D, F, G, K, L, M, N or high deductible F.
