WASHINGTON D.C. MEDICARE PLANS
Medigap or Medicare Supplement, is Medicare Supplement Insurance that helps fill “gaps” in Original Medicare and is sold by private Insurance Companies.
These Policies are Standardized by the US Government.
Most people on Medicare also obtain some sort of supplemental plan like a Medicare Supplement (Medigap) policy to help pay for Medicare Co-Pays.
For instance, Medicare only pays for 80% of the Medicare Approved Amount for most doctor services, outpatient therapy and durable medical equipment, while you typically pay 20%.
A Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policy, can help pay your portion of such remaining health care costs, like such co-payments, co-insurance, and deductibles.
Washington D.C. Medicare Supplement Plans include 10 standardized options, lettered A – N. Each insurance company must offer at least Plan A, but can offer any of the other plans as well.

WASHINGTON D.C. MEDICARE SUPPLEMENTS
One great feature of all Medicare supplements is that you can see any doctor that accepts Medicare. You are not limited to any networks. No matter which company you choose, you can see any doctor that participates in Medicare. Considering that Medicare has over 800,000 providers, you will have great choices for your medical care.
People who enroll in Washington D.C. Medicare supplements can set up a Part D drug plan as well to cover medication needs. This is a standalone pharmacy card that you present to your pharmacist. Part D coverage gives you access to medications at a copay rate instead of at full price.
MEDICARE UNDER 65 IN WASHINGTON D.C.
Senate Bill 42 requires that insurance carriers who offer Medicare supplements to people age 65 and older, must also offer the same policies to people under 65. However, premiums for people under 65 are often much higher than for people age 65 and older. This is because people under 65 have health conditions that qualified them for Medicare. This often causes higher loss ratios for the carrier, and they must raise rates to stay ahead.
