When can I buy a Medicare Supplement Insurance policy?

Any time after you are enrolled in Medicare Parts A & B. You do not have to wait for the Annual Enrollment Period to buy a policy. You can enroll up to 6 months prior to the date your Medicare begins.

What does Medicare Supplement insurance cover?

Policies help pay for Medicare Part A & B deductibles, co-payments, and co-insurance. Some policies also include coverage for certain health services not covered by Medicare.

What are my plan options?

In most states, there are 10 standardized plan options. Plan F and G are the most popular options.

How are plans priced?

Insurers can charge you different prices based on the type of plan you buy. Your health status may also affect your prices if you are outside of your open enrollment period.

Is Medicare Supplement insurance the same as a Medicare Advantage plan?

No. Medicare Supplement insurance policies help cover Medicare Part A & B out-of-pocket costs. Medicare Advantage Plans are an alternative way to get your Medicare coverage and, in some cases, additional benefits.
