Even though medical debt is reaching overwhelming proportions in the U.S., it’s still possible to get protection against the ever-present threat of major medical bills.
Original Medicare doesn’t pay for 100 percent of either doctor or hospital bills, but Medicare Supplement Insurance can. Need help to pay for the 20 percent of doctor services that Medicare doesn’t cover? There’s a Medigap Plan that does. Want to see a specialist who charges more than Medicare’s pre-determined rate? Medigap Insurance can make up the difference.
What about Medicare’s annual Part B deductible for doctor services? Medigap Plans will reimburse you for that and the much larger Part A deductible for hospital care. In fact, Medicare Supplement Insurance can handle all of the co-insurance and co-pays that Medicare can throw at you.
