What Is Medicare Supplement Coverage?

Medicare won’t cover all of the costs associated with your health care. Medicare supplement coverage, also known as Medigap, can help cover any gaps in your Original Medicare health care coverage. A Medigap plan can help cover those out-of-pocket costs to help make your health care expenses even more affordable.

What Is Covered By A Medicare Supplement Plan? 

Medigap covers the additional costs not covered by your Original Medicare, which includes Part A and Part B coverage. Costs covered include:  

  • Copayments 

  • Coinsurance 

  • Deductibles 

How Do I Enroll? 
In order to be eligible for Medicare supplement enrollment, you must be enrolled in Medicare Part A and Part B. Your qualifications for a Medigap plan may depend on factors such as your age, health, location and financial status. The best time to enroll is during the Medigap open enrollment period, which is six months long and begins on the first day of the month that you turn age 65 or older and the first month that you have Medicare Part B.   

If you do not have Part B coverage, you will first have to enroll for that coverage. After enrolling, you will have six months to obtain Medigap coverage.  

How Much Do Medicare Supplemental Plans Cost? 
The cost of your Medigap plan will depend on a variety of factors, including:  

  • The plans coverage 

  • The plan’s service area 

  • The age you enrolled in Medicare 

  • The age you currently are when enrolling in a Medicare supplement plan
