Medicare Supplements

Medicare Supplements have many different plan options, allowing the individual to select the one best for them. Supplements reduce Medicare bills, and they do this by covering some of the costs associated with Medicare and are not available for those enrolled in Part C.

Some plans may partially cover deductibles, while others have out-of-pocket limits. These limits benefit those anticipating large medical bills in the coming insurance period.

Consider your options

If you’re considering a supplemental Medicare plan, consider talking with an insurance consultant who can offer you some guidance. So many options are available, but choosing one doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Our team at Senior Insurance Consultants has extensive knowledge about supplement plans and is here to offer support and answer questions.

How Medicare Supplements work

Supplemental Medicare plans, also called Medigap, cover some of the costs that a Medicare plan doesn’t.

What Medicare costs exist?

While Medicare can significantly reduce medical bills, there are still costs that beneficiaries are responsible for paying. Deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments will require the beneficiary to pay out-of-pocket, at least to a certain extent.

Medicare Supplement Plans

Medicare Supplement Insurance can help lower the costs which Medicare doesn’t cover. Many options are available, so each beneficiary can choose which Plan best aligns with their medical situation.


Medigap plans are sold through private insurance companies. While these companies work closely with Medicare, Medicare does not sell Medigap plans. We guide you through the process if you want to enroll in Medicare Supplemental Insurance.

Who Needs Medicare Supplements

While anybody can benefit from the coverage of Medicare Supplements, certain people should consider them strongly.

Those anticipating high medical bills or having a medical condition that may result in insurance use should consider Medicare Supplements. Medicare Supplements can be helpful for smaller medical bills but may save more money when the bills are higher.

Those anticipating expensive medical bills should consider a plan with an out-of-pocket limit. This could help if the individual is hospitalized or needs unforeseen care.

What Medicare service did you spend the most money on last year?

Looking at your past insurance bills is an excellent way to plan for the future. Did you spend more on Medicare Part A or B costs last year? Was the majority of that deductibles?

If you can understand why your bills were heightened in the past, you can make informed decisions when selecting a Medigap policy for the future.

Are you anticipating certain medical costs?

When selecting a Medigap plan, consider what you might need in the future. If you’re anticipating increased outpatient or hospital inpatient care, that should be factored into your decision.

Do you travel?

Compare options

So many different Medicare options are available that it might initially seem overwhelming. Your chosen policy will depend on your medical needs and should be selected carefully.

Original Medicare or Medicare Advantage?

Comparing Original Medicare and Medicare Advantage can be done. Original Medicare provides basic coverage but doesn’t extend to Medicare Advantage’s areas.

If you want vision, dental or hearing coverage, it’s best to choose an Advantage policy. However, if you have another form of insurance or don’t anticipate using any other coverage area, Original Medicare might be the most financially sound option.

Need a Supplement Plan?

A Medicare Supplement Plan might be worth considering if you have Original Medicare. However, you have ten different plans to choose from. The coverage you are looking for will ultimately decide what Plan is best for you. Consider the additional costs that supplement plans may or may not cover, such as deductibles, coinsurance, copayments, excess charges, or even foreign travel emergencies.
