That may sound like overkill, but not everyone’s situation is the same. Some people never venture out of the country, while others have been planning a European tour for years. With ten different Medicare Supplement plans, you can take or leave coverage in foreign countries.
Medicare has $0 coverage if you’re hurt when traveling in New Zealand, but six of the Medigap Insurance plans pay for 80 percent of emergency medical care during the first 60 days of a trip abroad after you meet a $250 deductible.
Medigap plans also offer you a choice of 50 percent, 75 percent or 100 percent coverage for several other benefits. That’s true for coverage of Medicare’s Part B co-insurance and co-pay charges and Medicare’s Part A deductible.
You can also tailor your Medigap coverage with different percentages of coverage for the first three pints of blood transfusions, Medicare’s Part A hospice care co-insurance and co-pay charges and co-insurance charges on skilled nursing facility care. It’s easy to see the differences between the Medigap plans on our website and our expert advisors discuss Medigap policies during a free teleseminar on the first Tuesday of the month. You can sign up right here on our website, too.
