What are Medicare Supplements and Why You Need Them
With Original Medicare Part A & Part B, many consumers do not understand that Part A and Part B does not cover all medical expenses. Deductibles, co-pays and co-insurance are not covered by Original Medicare Part A and Part B, therefore leaves the consumer with a "gap" in coverage with out of pocket cost that are not covered. On average Part A and Part B only covers about 80% of medical costs. A Medicare supplement plan is meant to help fill in the "gaps" of coverage and are often referred to as Medigap coverage.
There are many options for Medicare Supplements in California. We will review each one for their benefits and coverage summary.
