Medicare Supplement Coverage

Medicare Supplement Insurance

Medicare supplement insurance helps fill gaps in Original Medicare (parts A & B) and is sold by private insurance companies.  

Things to know about Medicare Supplements:

  • You must have Medicare parts A & B to enroll.
  • Medicare Supplement plans and Medicare Advantage plans are different.

  • All Supplement carriers must be licensed and approved by the federal government.
  • Supplement policies are guaranteed renewable even if you have health problems.  (this doesn’t mean that prices will not increase)
