Why A Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap Policy)
Some Medigap policies also offer coverage for services that Original Medicare doesn't cover, like medical care when you travel outside the U.S. If you have Original Medicare and you buy a Medigap policy, Medicare will pay its share of the Medicare-approved amount for covered health care costs. Then your Medigap policy pays its share. A Medigap policy is different from a Medicare Advantage Plan. Those plans are ways to get Medicare benefits, while a Medigap policy only supplements your Original Medicare benefits.
Medigap policies may offer household discounts on their Medicare supplemental insurance for couples or any 2 people who live together and are over 60 years old. Other discounts may be offered for women, non-smokers, or people who are married; discounts for paying yearly; discounts for paying your premiums using electronic funds transfer; or discounts for multiple policies.
You are not restricted to use a network of healthcare providers. If you move, your coverage goes with you.
Benefits stay the same
You always know what your benefits are with the standardized plan you choose...no surprises or re-evaluations year-after-year. Every Medigap policy must follow Federal and State laws designed to protect you, and it must be clearly identified as "Medicare Supplement Insurance." Insurance companies can sell you only a "standardized" policy identified in most states by letters A-N. All policies offer the same basic benefits but some offer additional benefits, so you can choose which one meets your needs. In Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, Medigap policies are standardized in a different way.
Freedom to choose your doctors
You can use any doctor who accepts Medicare. This includes specialists and specialty hospitals. There are no provider networks or referrals required. So, you can go to the doctors you know and trust. With automatic claims filing by most providers, you have less things to worry about.
Guarantee renewable policy for life
Your policy is guaranteed to be renewed if premiums are paid on time. You cannot be singled out for a rate increase based on your health, no matter if your health changes. Premiums may change if the premiums for all policies like yours in the state where your policy was issued change or if coverage under Medicare changes.
