SHIIP :: Supplemental Insurance

Buying Medicare supplement insurance is a way to protect yourself from some of the costs not covered by Medicare. It is also called “Medigap” or “Med Supp” insurance. There are 10 standardized Medicare supplement plans identified by the letters “A” through “N.” Plan F is also available as a high deductible plan. The benefits in each plan are identical from company to company. SHIIP has a free guide that explains Medicare supplement insurance— “Iowa Medicare Supplement & Premium Comparison Guide”. This resource can be found on the left side of this page under “Resources”.

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.
