If you’re enrolled in Part A and B of Medicare, Medicare Supplement Insurance is available to help pay for the medical costs that Medicare does not cover. For the first six months after you turn 65, an open enrollment period means you do not need to qualify or answer any questions about your medical history to apply.
The additional help of Medicare Supplement Insurance (also called Medigap Insurance) can do much more than reduce your out-of-pocket healthcare costs. Seniors with Medigap or Medicare Advantage coverage have shown fewer hospital admissions, fewer days spent in the hospital, and fewer hospital readmissions.
In addition, they have fewer emergency room visits, and fewer hospital admissions for potentially avoidable problems. It appears that the additional coverage helps seniors catch health problems early on with more doctor office visits, so problems just don’t reach the stage requiring hospital admissions compared to people with only traditional Medicare.
If you’d like to understand Medigap policies and Medicare Advantage Plans better, you can learn all about this coverage at MediGap Advisors. You can also call us at 866-323-1441 or email us at info@MedigapAdvisors.com to schedule an appointment to discuss your health care needs with licensed insurance agents for absolutely NO COST. You’ll be assigned your own Personal Advisor who can answer your questions, share years of experience with these plans, and help you compare the different plans available. We’re here to help you get the information you need to make the best decision to protect your health and your healthcare dollars.
