Seniors are satisfied with their Medigap plans according to a survey by American Viewpoint. That revealed nine out of 10 Medigap plan holders are highly satisfied with their coverage. Seventy-nine percent said that they are getting good value for their premium dollars, and 91 percent would recommend Medigap insurance to their relatives and friends.
In 2011 alone, about 9.8 million beneficiaries had supplemented their Medicare coverage with Medigap. According to enrollees, Medigap plans limit out-of-pocket costs. Policyholders did not find limited access to health care providers accepting Medicare or the Medigap plans that work with it.
For doctor services, Medigap plans pick up the remaining 20 percent since Medicare only covers 80 percent of doctor care unless it’s recommended preventive care. In addition, Medigap also covers co-pays and co-insurance and will reimburse for the Part A and Part B deductibles.
