Since Medicare Supplement Plans all work with the national Medicare program, it’s natural to assume the plans are all on an even playing field. However, this really is not the case because rates are not standardized, even though the actual coverage is.
It does pay to shop around for the best way to meet your health care needs, and that’s true whether you’re looking at Medigap Plans or Medicare Advantage Plans. It doesn’t have to be confusing or time-consuming, though. It’s easy to request instant quotes to see what’s available in your area and what the prices run.
Medicare Supplement Insurance does just what it says: it adds benefits to make your Medicare coverage complete. For example, if you need a doctor who charges more than Medicare’s pre-determined rate, you’ll be stuck paying for the difference without a Medigap Plan to cover those excess charges.
