Medicare Supplement insurance works differently in Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, which standardize their plans differently from the rest of the country. Insurance companies that sell Medicare Supplement insurance aren’t required to offer all plan types. However, any insurance company that sells Medigap insurance is required by law to offer Medigap Plan A. If an insurance company wants to offer other Medigap plans, it must sell either Plan C or Plan F in addition to any other plans it would like to sell.

Every person is different, so you’ll want to carefully research Medicare Advantage plan options in light of your specific health needs and budget. Keep in mind that plan costs, benefits, service areas, and provider networks may all change from year to year, so it’s a good idea to review your coverage every year and make sure it’s still a good fit for your situation. Taking the time to shop around and compare Medicare Advantage plan options in your area could save you money on out-of-pocket costs.

Now this is where it gets confusing for many Medicare subscribers. Some believe that if you pay less for a supplemental coverage plan, you will get less coverage. But that is not true at all. In fact, the coverage on each plan is guaranteed and regulated by Medicare. Medicare makes sure that all the companies that offer its plans do so while abiding under its coverage guidelines for each plan. So Plan F from one insurance company is actually the same plan with all the same coverage as Plan F from a different insurance company. And the price you pay for both versions of the plan will probably differ, but the coverage stays the same.

How to compare Medigap policies
Compare Medicare Supplement Plans
Even though Medigap plans are run by private companies such as Blue Cross, United Healthcare, or Humana, every Medigap policy must be standardized and must follow Federal and state laws.There are multiple “F” plans offered by multiple companies, but they’re all exactly the same plan by Medicare rule. This makes it easy to compare “F” plans between two companies, since they are the exact same coverage but not necessarily the same price. To clarify further still, that means that each private company that offers a certain plan has to offer the exact same benefits as their competition. The same can be said for the “N” plans, the “C” plans, and so on.
