Medicare Supplemental Insurance (Medigap)
For individuals over 65 and others who qualify, the cost of healthcare can be greatly reduced through access to Medicare insurance. However, Medicare does not normally cover every cost you may incur when receiving health care services—and for individuals in retirement or on fixed incomes, unexpected health care costs can be debilitating.
Luckily, for individuals who have Medicare insurance but experience gaps in their coverage, Medicare supplemental insurance is an option to help fill those gaps. Medicare supplemental insurance plans, aka Medigap plans, are structured to cover costs that Medicare normally would not.
