You may have heard that standardized Medicare Supplement Plans can fill in the gaps in your Medicare coverage, but what does “standardized” mean for you? It definitely doesn’t mean that Medicare Supplement Insurance comes in “one size fits all” policies.
Standarized means that whether you buy Medigap Plan F from an insurance company you know or a brand new company, your Medigap coverage will include the same benefits. That does not mean that you don’t need to “shop around” before you invest your hard-earned money.
While you would get the same coverage with a Medigap Plan F from any insurance company, you could pay hundreds of dollars more than you need to unless you compare prices. That’s right – insurance companies are not regulated on how much they charge you for the exact same Medigap insurance.
To get the best value for your money, take advantage of free services that can help you compare the 10 different forms of Medicare Supplement Plans and what various companies are charging for them. You can take a look at all your Medicare Supplement Insurance options on our website.
