In a society where health and safety are rapidly changing, having Medicare coverage is of the utmost importance. However, Original Medicare does not account for office visits and prescriptions. That is where a Medicare Supplement Plan, also known as Medigap, comes to your aid.
Since most Medigap plans are standardized and can be used with any medical provider who accepts Medicare, having a Medigap plan gives you all the added benefits while staying with the doctor you feel most comfortable with.
There are three ways in which Medigap plan premiums are calculated: issue-age rated, attained-age rated, and community rated. Understanding your needs and options will help you determine which plan and insurance provider to choose. Still have questions and want more information? Health Plans of America does all the hard work for you by offering information and resources to help you make informed decisions. Don’t wait!
