Medicare supplement plans (also known as Medigap) are private insurance plans that fill in some or all of the gaps left behind by original Medicare Parts A & B. These plans and Original Medicare work in tandem. Medicare pays will pay it’s share and then your supplement plan pays afterwards. You will need to present both your Medicare supplement ID and Medicare cards to your healthcare provider when receiving care.
There are ten standardized Medicare supplement plans A-N. There is one variation of Plan C and two variations of Plan F. View our chart here to better understand what each plan covers.
