The Need For Medicare Supplements
Original Medicare provides excellent health insurance coverage. However, it’s far from perfect. Looming within your benefits are copayments, coinsurance, and multiple deductibles that leave you exposed to high out-of-pocket medical bills.
Medicare supplemental insurance provides a secondary layer of insurance coverage, which helps to reduce or eliminate your out-of-pocket medical costs. These policies work to protect your health and your bank account.
Don’t Confuse Medigap Plan C with Medicare Part C
Medigap Plan C often get mixed up. Let’s make sure you’re clear about the basics of Medicare.
There are four separate parts of Medicare:
- Medicare Part A – Hospital insurance (inpatient services)
- Medicare Part B – Doctors Insurance (outpatient services)
- Medicare Part C – Medicare Advantage Plans
- Medicare Part D – Prescription Drug Coverage
Supplemental insurance plans are private health insurance plans that work alongside your Original Medicare to ‘supplement’ the financial gaps in Part A & Part B.
Medicare Advantage is an all in one insurance plan that provides comprehensive health insurance coverage. These plans fill the same financial gaps as Medigap policies do; however, they also expand your benefits to include vision, dental, and prescription drugs.
What Does Medicare Supplement Plan C Cover?
There are nine financial gaps that Original Medicare does not cover. Medigap Plan C covers eight of the nine gaps.
- Part A coinsurance
- Part B Coinsurance
- Blood – first 3 pints
- Part A Hospice Care Coinsurance
- Skilled Nursing Coinsurance
- Part A Deductible
- Part B Deductible
- Foreign Travel Exchange 80%
