What’s Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap)?

Some Medigap policies also offer coverage for services that Original Medicare doesn’t cover, like medical care when you travel outside the U.S. If you have Original Medicare and you buy a Medigap policy, Medicare will pay its share of the Medicare-approved amount for covered health care costs. Then your Medigap policy pays its share.

Medicare Supplemental Insurance

Why do I need a Medicare supplement? Even though Medicare will cover a large portion of your Medical expenses there are many gaps left for you to pay. These gaps can easily deplete a person’s financial resources when they are on a set budget. A Medicare supplemental insurance policy can cover most or all of the Medicare costs left unpaid and the policies are affordable for most people. A majority of people turning 65 can find insurance in the $95 to $150 price range that will cover all the deductibles and co-payments.  When turning 65 there is no underwriting and all Medicare supplement policies are guaranteed renewable.  Because insurance premiums can vary wildly by location, age, insurance company, and other criteria it is important to request quotes from and independent agent before purchasing a Medigap plan.

Medigap (Medicare Supplement Health Insurance)

A Medigap policy is health insurance sold by private insurance companies to fill the “gaps” in Original Medicare Plan coverage. Medigap policies help pay some of the health care costs that the Original Medicare Plan doesn’t cover. If you are in the Original Medicare Plan and have a Medigap policy, then Medicare and your Medigap policy will each pay its share of covered health care costs. Generally, when you buy a Medigap policy you must have Medicare Part A and Part B. You will have to pay the monthly Medicare Part B premium ($96.40 in 2011 for most beneficiaries). In addition, you will have to pay a premium to the Medigap insurance company. As long as you pay your premium, your Medigap policy is guaranteed renewable. This means it is automatically renewed each year. Your coverage will continue year after year as long as you pay your premium. In some states, insurance companies may refuse to renew a Medigap policy bought before 1992. Insurance companies can only sell you a “standardized” Medigap policy. Medigap policies must follow Federal and state laws. These laws protect you. The front of a Medigap policy must clearly identify it as “Medicare Supplement Insurance.” It’s important to compare Medigap policies, because costs can vary. The standardized Medigap policies that insurance companies offer must provide the same benefits. Generally, the only difference between Medigap policies sold by different insurance companies is the cost. You and your spouse must buy separate Medigap policies.Your Medigap policy won’t cover any health care costs for your spouse. Some Medigap policies also cover other extra benefits that aren’t covered by Medicare. You are guaranteed the right to buy a Medigap policy under certain circumstances. For more information on Medigap policies, you may call 1-800-633-4227 and ask for a free copy of the publication “Choosing a Medigap Policy: A Guide to Health Insurance for People With Medicare.” You may also call your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP) and your State Insurance Department. Phone numbers for these Departments and Programs in each State can be found in that publication.

Most existing beneficiaries will be "held harmless" and will pay $104.90 in 2016. Beneficiaries not subject to the “hold harmless” provision will pay $121.80, as calculated reflecting the provisions of the Bipartisan Budget Act signed into law by President Obama last week. Medicare Part B beneficiaries not subject to the “hold-harmless” provision are those not collecting Social Security benefits, those who will enroll in Part B for the first time in 2016, dual eligible beneficiaries who have their premiums paid by Medicaid, and beneficiaries who pay an additional income-related premium. These groups account for about 30 percent of the 52 million Americans expected to be enrolled in Medicare Part B in 2016.

How Much Does Medicare Cost Per Month?

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

Medicare Part A is free for most people. If you’re 65 or over and eligible for Social Security, Railroad Retirement or civil service retirement, or dependents or survivors benefits, you’re also eligible for Medicare Part A without paying any premium. If you’re under 65 and have received Social Security disability benefits for 24 months, you’re also eligible for free Part A coverage. If you aren’t eligible for free Part A coverage, you can buy it for a monthly premium. With 30 to 39 Social Security or civil service work credits, you’d pay $233 a month; if you have fewer than 30 work credits, Part A costs you $423 a month. You can find out how many credits you have by checking the annual earnings record Social Security sends you or by going online at the Social Security website[ssa.gov].
