What is “Original Medicare"?

Original Medicare is Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance)


What is a Medigap policy?

A Medigap policy is private health insurance that supplements Original Medicare. This means it helps pay some of the health care costs that Original Medicare doesn’t cover (like copayments, coinsurance and deductibles). These are “gaps”in Medicare coverage. A Medicare Supplement Plan or a Medigap Plan is the same thing.

Medigap plans are named alphabetically (e.g. a Plan F or a Plan G). They provide the same required benefits no matter which insurance company offers them. They differ in cost and optional additional benefits they may provide by company.

NOTE: Medicare doesn’t pay any of your costs for a Medigap policy. All Medigap policies must follow federal and state laws and designed to protect you , and policies must be clearly identified as “Medicare Supplement Insurance”.
