What Type of Coverage?
The short answer, it depends. If you’re on Medicare and want to protect yourself from costly medical bills, you should consider additional Medicare coverage.

What is Medigap Insurance?
The Medicare Gap
Medicare alone leaves you at risk.
Did you know? Original Medicare usually only pays for 80% of your costs, after deductibles and copays. By purchasing a Medicare Supplement (Medigap) plan, you can cover the additional portion that you’d be responsible for.
When you start to really think about it, those costs can add up quickly. Medigap plans are available with varying levels of coverage so that you can choose one based on your needs and preferences.
Do you need coverage on your prescriptions?
Medicare Part D is prescription drug coverage. Medicare Part A and Part B (Original Medicare) coverage does not include Medicare Part D. If you’re on Medicare and want coverage for your prescription drug costs, you may want to learn about Medicare Part D.
You can get Medicare Part D benefits:
- If you sign up for a stand-alone Medicare Part D prescription drug plan
- If you sign up for a Medicare Advantage prescription drug plan

What type of doctors does Medicare accept?
One of the most important things you can do to keep down costs is to find doctors who take Medicare. That is, you’ll want to find Medicare providers who “accept Medicare assignment.”
This simply means that your doctor has signed an agreement with the Medicare program to accept a certain approved amount as payment in full. You’ll still be responsible for your share of costs, such as deductibles, copayments, or coinsurance.

“Medicare pays for much – but not all – of the costs for covered health care services and supplies. A Medigap policy can help pay the remaining health care costs like Copayments, Coinsurance, and Deductibles.”
