MedicareSupplemental.info, click here to visit the website, has been launched to educate and help consumers get medigap insurance quotes.The new website provides medicare quotes nationwide.
Medicare Supplemental Coverage is known as “Medigap” for short. The reason for this is that it’s designed to provide insurance coverage for the “gap” between what Medicare pays and what the costs of a recipient’s actual services are. This difference is created by two factors: First, there are some medical services that Medicare doesn’t pay for at all. Second, there are some medical services that Medicare only pays for in part. So, the Medicare beneficiaries that do not carry any type of Medigap coverage are left responsible for the difference between those two amounts themselves.
Representative of the website comments, "If you are over sixty-five years of age, you need to be enrolled in either Medicare part A or Medicare part B in order to be eligible for Medigap. If you want to avoid a medical evaluation, there are also some timing requirements. You either have to enroll within six months of turning sixty-five, or you have to enroll within six months of becoming a recipient of Medicare part B. As we mentioned a moment ago, these rules are different if you haven’t turned 65 yet, as is the case with some Medicare recipients."
