Compare Medicare Advantage & Supplemental Plans
Medicare supplement plans offer benefits in addition to the benefits offered by Medicare Parts A and B, and they are offered by private insurance companies. There are several different types of Medicare supplement plans available, including Plan A, Plan C, Plan F, Plan M and Plan N. Medicare supplement plans and Medicare Advantage plans are not complementary, so it is important to understand which type of policy makes the most sense for you. Our licensed sales agents are standing by to walk you through a comparison of the costs and benefits of each type of plan, and to help you choose a Medicare supplement plan that best meets your needs.

Medicare Information and Plan Comparisons
While health care was not central to the 2016 Presidential campaign, the election’s outcome will be a major determining factor in the country’s future health care policy. A number of issues have garnered media attention, including the future of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), rising prescription drug costs, and the opioid epidemic.
Which insurance pays first
Once you become eligible for Medicare because of permanent kidney failure (usually the fourth month of dialysis), there will still be a period of time called a “coordination period.” During this time (30 months), your employer or union group health plan will continue to pay first on your health care bills, and Medicare will pay second. If you take a course in home-dialysis training or get a kidney transplant during the 3-month waiting period, the 30-month coordination period will start earlier.
