What do Medicare Supplements cover?
Each plan covers a different percentage of:
- Medicare Part A coinsurance/copayments
- Medicare Part B coinsurance/copayments
- First three pints of a blood transfusion
- Part A hospice care coinsurance/copayments
- Skilled nursing facility coinsurance
- Medicare Part A deductible
- Medicare Part B deductible*
- Medicare Part B excess charges
- Foreign travel emergency (up to plan limits)
How Does Coverage Work?
After you visit a doctor or hospital, the bill goes to Medicare.
Medicare will pay its portion and then send the rest to your Medicare Supplement plan provider.
Your plan will pay based on the plan’s terms.
If anything is left, you will be responsible for covering it.
When are the enrollment periods for Medicare Supplements?
You can enroll once your Medicare Part B plan is effective.
You’ll have six months of guaranteed issue rights at that time to enroll in a Medicare Supplement plan. This is a one-time open enrollment in which you cannot be turned down for a plan or be charged an additional premium for health reasons. Afterwards, you may not be able to get a plan and premiums will be subject to medical underwriting.
