What is a Medicare Supplement? Also called “Medigap insurance,” this type of plan helps pay for what Original Medicare does not pay for. It pays the in-between so you don’t have to pay out-of-pocket for insurance. If you have Original Medicare and have a Medigap policy, Original Medicare will pay for MOST of your medical expenses, and Medigap will pay for the rest.
Pricing differs depending on your plan and what state you live in. You can buy a Medigap policy from any insurance company who are licensed to sell one. It is illegal, however, for a company to sell you a plan if you already have a Medicare Advantage Plan. Private insurance companies are required to sell you a general benefits package, but each company can change their premium price. So, it’s best to shop around for the best price.

Medigap does not cover everything. These policies do not cover dental care, vision care, hearing aids, or long-term care. The best time to apply for insurance is at the beginning of the month during the enrollment period. If you are 65 or older and enrolled in Part B for six months, you are eligible for apply for Medigap insurance.
