With Medicare Supplement Plans, you are assured that there will be no unpaid doctor bills. Medicare Supplement insurance takes care of the 20 percent of every doctor bill that’s left after Medicare has paid.
Medicare Supplement insurance helps even more when you need hospital care. Medicare has a large Part A deductible that you’ll have to meet before Medicare will cover hospital bills, but that’s not the only gap in benefits you may face.
If you are the type of person who loves to travel outside of the U.S., be aware that Medicare only works inside of the country. Unless you expand on Medicare’s benefits by adding Medicare Supplement insurance, you’ll be on your own if you need emergency medical care while travelling outside of the U.S.
