With all the choices you have for your health care coverage, it's important to understand how each one works, its benefits and your share of the costs. Here's a brief look at how Medicare supplement insurance differs from other coverage.
5 Reasons to choose a Medicare Supplement Insurance policy
#1 Low or no out-of-pocket costs
Every year, your medicare supplement insurance policy benefits coordinate with your Medicare benefits to help you meet eligible health care expenses, depending on the plan you choose.
#2 Choose your doctors and hospitals
#3 Coverage is guaranteed renewable
#4 Providers accept patients with Medicare Supplements Insurance
Your medicare supplement policy enables you to see any doctor or provider who accepts medicare.
#5 Your coverage goes with you
Just like Medicare, you Medicare supplement covers your health care needs anywhere in the United States. Some Medicare supplement plans even provide care outside the country. That way, you can confidently travel or live part of the year anywhere you choose.
Guaranteed Issue Coverage
Your employer discontinues its group retiree health coverage.
You leave a Medicare Advantage plan within a year of joining and return to Medicare.
Medicare pays a portion of your health care cost for hospitalization, skilled nursing facility care and physician's services and supplies. However, it does not pay all of your expenses and requires you to pay deductibles and coinsurance for many services.
A Medicare supplement insurance policy may help pay some of the charges Medicare doesn't cover. For plan details, ask your insurance agent.
What is a Medicare advantage Plan (Part C)?
These plans pay for the doctor's visits, hospital costs and, in many cases, prescription drug coverage. They may also include benefits like vision, hearing, dental and/or health and wellness programs. Some plans allow you to visit any Medicare-eligible provider, while others have a network of doctors and hospitals.
A Medicare Advantage Plan may be right choice for you if any of these fit your description:
Some plans have a $0 monthly plan premium. You must continue to pay your Part B premium and your Part A premium if you have one.
What is the Medicare (Part D)
