Medicare Supplement Plans. Compare Quotes Near You.

Medicare certainly does not cover everything. Instead, you may want to consider Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) to help pay for health care costs that Medicare will not address. Private insurance companies provide this type of benefit. They also offer health care coverage not available through traditional Medicare. It is a supplement to Original Medicare (Part A and B), which means you must qualify for Medicare to get this supplement.
One major benefit to Medigap coverage is that once you purchase it for the first time, it is guaranteed to be renewable, even if you have health problems in the future. That means that as long as you pay the premium, your policy cannot be canceled. Medigap coverage is an alternative to a Medicare Advantage Plan; you cannot have both at the same time. These plans also cannot cover prescription drugs, as you have to use Medicare Part D for that particular benefit.

What does Medigap Cover?

Co-Payments
