    Medicare Supplement Insurance

    What Is Medicare Supplement Insurance (a.k.a. Medigap)?

    When Americans turn 65 years old, they have the option to enroll in Medicare. (People also may qualify for Medicare before 65 if they have certain disabilities.)

    Basic Medicare includes Part A, which covers most of your basic inpatient hospital expenses, and Part B, which covers most of your basic medical expenses. Unfortunately, “most” does not mean “all.” The expenses that Medicare does not cover — sometimes referred to as “gaps” in coverage — are what Medicare Supplement Insurance, or Medigap policies, can help you with. Medigap is a private insurance plan designed to help cover medical expenses that Original Medicare does not cover, such as copayments, coinsurance and deductibles.

    When Can You Sign up for Medicare Supplement Insurance?

    You can sign up for Medigap insurance at any time. However, there are certain times when you’re guaranteed the right to buy a Medigap policy from any insurance company that is licensed in your state, regardless of your current level of health:
