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.

Shopping For Medicare Supplemental Insurance

Health insurance from an employer, professional organization, government or military retiree plans. If you remain employed after your 65th birthday, you may be able to continue your group health insurance with your employer and may not need a Medicare Supplement insurance policy. Likewise, if you become eligible for Medicare but are covered by your working spouse’s health insurance, you may not need a Medicare Supplement Insurance policy. Retirees with group health plans from their employers may consider switching to individual Medicare Supplement insurance policies. If you are in this situation, it is important to review each option before making a decision.  Group retiree plans may not cost anything, or the cost may be lower than buying an individual Medicare Supplement insurance policy.

Medicare Supplemental Insurance — Which policy is best?

Our recommendation: After picking the benefit combination (Plan A through L) that best suits your needs, buy the issue-age or community-rated Medigap policy with the lowest premium. Even though they are a bit more expensive at the start, your premiums won’t go up every year just because you get older. (AARP’s Medigap plans use a combination of issue-age and community-rated methods; their premiums don’t increase as you get older, but their younger retirees do receive a discount.)
