A Medicare Supplement Plan, also known as Medigap, helps fill the “gaps” in original Medicare and is sold by private companies. Medicare pays for much, but not all, of the costs for covered health care services and supplies. A Medicare Supplement Plan (Medigap) policy can help pay some of the remaining health care costs, such as :

  • Copayment
  • Coinsurance
  • Deductibles

Although these plans can seem confusing, arming yourself with knowledge about what each type of plan covers—and doesn’t cover—can make a huge difference.
