MedicareSupplemental.info, click here to visit the website, is a new website that helps consumers research medicare supplemental insurance rates and plans.
Medicare Supplemental Insurance is a type of health insurance for seniors designed to bridge the coverage gaps left by standard Medicare benefits. Offered by private insurance companies, it's a supplemental health insurance that works in addition to your Original Medicare Plan to pay for certain services not covered by Medicare.
The representative for the website comments "Medigap is a great supplemental insurance because it lets you choose the right plan for you and gives you more coverage. However, not everyone is eligible for Medigap coverage. You must be enrolled in Medicare Part A and Part B to have any Medigap policy. In addition, you usually have to be at least 65 years of age. Even if you are under 65 but have a qualifying disability that lets you have Medicare, you may not be eligible for Medigap. Limitations for disabled individuals under age 65 vary from state to state. If you have Medicaid, you do not qualify for Medigap coverage."
