BASIC MEDICARE CAN BE COSTLY WITHOUT A SUPPLEMENTAL INSURANCE PLAN
OBTAIN PEACE OF MIND AND FINANCIAL STABILITY
GET YOUR MEDICARE CO-PAYS AND CO-INSURANCE COVERED THROUGH A MEDICARE SUPPLEMENT (MEDIGAP) INSURANCE PLAN
If you are one of the many millions of baby boomers turning 65 soon, you may be considering a Medicare Supplement plan (Medigap) to help you with Medicare costs. Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) only covers 80% of most Medicare Costs. There are Medicare co- pays and co -insurance, for which you are still responsible. With many procedures costing tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars, 20% can add up fast, and if you are not ready, can wipe out a lot of your retirement savings.
That is where Medicare Supplement (Medigap) comes in. Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) is an important component of your overall health plan because these policies are designed to fill in the gaps in your original Medicare coverage. This protects your nest-egg from unexpected big ticket medical services.

What Medicare Pays For:
Original Medicare Part A is hospital coverage that helps cover:
- Inpatient hospital services
- Skilled nursing facility care (after a hospital stay)

- All but the first 3 pints of blood you receive per calendar year
Original Medicare Part B is medical coverage and helps cover:
- Services from doctors and other health care providers
- Outpatient care
- Home health care
- Clinical laboratory services
- Durable medical equipment and supplies
- Preventive health care including exams, screenings and shots
According to Medicare.gov, there are 10 standard Medicare supplement insurance plans – A, B, C, D, F, G,K, L, M and N and each offers different benefits that are set by the U.S. government.
ALL 10 PLANS OFFER THESE BASIC BENEFITS:
- Part A coinsurance and hospital costs up to an additional 365 days after Medicare benefits are gone
