Medigap: Filling the Gaps in Original Medicare

Posted by Medicare Made Clear

A Medigap plan (also known as Medicare Supplement Insurance) is a kind of private Medicare coverage that helps pay costs Medicare Parts A and B (Original Medicare) don’t cover, like copayments, coinsurance and deductibles. Medicare Supplement Insurance carriers offer Medigap plansthat help cover out-of-pocket expenses associated with doctor visits, hospital stays, skilled nursing facility stays, hospice, blood transfusions or foreign travel emergencies, among other medical expenses.
