Medigap: Supplemental

A Medigap plan is put in place to help you pay the out-of-pocket costs, like the 20% of costs that exceed your Original Medicare deductible. The best time to buy a Medigap policy is within the six-month period that starts the month you turn 65 and have enrolled in a Part B plan. All Medigap policies offer the same basic benefits. When you are new to Medicare, select a Medigap policy that meets your needs.

If you are a new Medicare enrollee, consider coverage, costs, your doctor and hospital choice, and quality of care when selecting the Medicare plan for you.
