A Guide to Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans
Medicare Supplement insurance plans help cover some of the costs not covered by Medicare Parts A and B, such as deductibles and coinsurance, so you have more predictable costs. You can keep the same doctors, you are still in the Medicare program, and you have all of your Medicare rights and protections. It should be noted that Medicare Supplement insurance plans are not managed care.

Basic Benefits of Medicare Supplement Insurance plans
In most states*, policies are standardized into plans labeled A through N. All policies cover basic benefits, but each has additional benefits that vary by plan.** Medicare Supplement insurance plans A through G provide benefits at higher premiums with limited out-of-pocket costs. Plans K through N are cost-sharing plans offering similar benefits at lower premiums with greater out-of-pocket costs. Some companies may offer additional innovative benefits.
Plans A and B
Plan A provides basic coverage for hospitalization, medical expenses, and hospice care. Plan B includes the same basic benefits, plus coverage for your Part A deductible.
