When it comes to completing your Medicare coverage, you have an array of Medicare Supplement insurance choices. Medicare Supplement Plans come in 10 standardized policies and each has different benefits. These plans are usually available on a statewide basis and many states offer the exact same plans.
Massachusetts, Minnesota and Wisconsin have slightly different Medigap plans from which to choose. That’s true on a statewide basis, too. If you live in one of these states, you’ll be able to get some benefits available in other states, but you may have additional options, too.
Medicare Advantage Plans are an entirely different way to supplement your Medicare coverage. These plans offer the same coverage as Original Medicare, but often provide additional benefits. They are not available on a statewide basis and there may be locations with no Medicare Advantage Plan choices.
Depending on your individual situation, you may want to combine Original Medicare with a Medigap Plan and a Prescription Drug Plan. In some areas, it may cost less to enroll in one of the Medicare Advantage Plans that combine Medicare’s Part A, B and D benefits. With so many choices, you can save a lot a time and money by consulting professionals who understand how Medicare Supplement Plans work and what’s available where you live.
