If you’re approaching 65 and retirement’s around the corner, you’re likely looking at healthcare options and planning
Medicare Supplement Insurance, also known as Medigap policies, is meant to help cover most of your medical costs, if not all, that Original Medicare does not cover. If you are already enrolled in Original Medicare Parts A and B and choose to buy Medicare Supplement Insurance, know that Medicare will pay its portion of the approved amount set by Medicare itself to cover a certain amount of the costs. Once that portion is paid, the Medicare Supplement plan that you chose to buy will cover its share.
Depending on the plan you go with, you will either pay a higher premium for no out-of-pocket costs and more benefits or pay a smaller premium with no additional benefits. The choice is entirely up to you and what you feel fits you best, but don’t feel like you need to settle with the first plan you see!
