What’s Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap)?

Posted by:  :  Category: Medicare

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 Supplement Plans

To be eligible to enroll in a Medicare Supplement plan, you must be enrolled in both Medicare Part A and Part B. A good time to enroll in a plan is generally during the Medigap Open Enrollment Period, which begins on the first day of the month that you are both age 65 or older and enrolled in Part B, and lasts for six months. During this period, you have the guaranteed-issue right to join any Medicare Supplement plan available where you live. You may not be denied coverage based on any pre-existing conditions during this enrollment period (although a waiting period may apply). If you miss this enrollment period and attempt to enroll in the future, you may be denied coverage or charged a higher premium based on your medical history. In some states, you may be able to enroll in a Medigap plan before the age of 65.

Medicare Supplement Plans in 2017 – Know Your Options

Your first chance to enroll is during your open enrollment period. The period begins on the first of the month you turn 65—as long as you enroll in Part B. During open enrollment, insurance companies cannot delay your coverage start date, charge you higher premiums, or deny you a policy due to your health. These protections are called “guaranteed issue rights,” and in situations where these rights apply, federal law allows you to buy any Medigap plan that is sold in your state.
