Where is the best place to buy Medicare Supplemental Insurance?–The best place is discovered after accomplishing significant research, doing some comparison shopping and choosing the best Medicare Supplemental Insurance for your individual needs. Medicare Supplemental Plans also known as “Medigap” are private health insurance policies. They fill in the “gaps” that are not covered by Medicare. You must have Medicare Part A and B, or be ready to obtain Medicare, and be at least, sixty-four and a half years old to obtain Medicare Supplemental Insurance. The Medicare Supplemental Insurance plans are only used with Medicare, and no other private insurance plans. If you are married, you and your husband need to have separate Medicare Supplemental Insurance.
Some of the companies providing Medicare Supplemental Insurance policies (“Medigap”) are: AARP, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Humana and United Healthcare.
All Medicare Supplemental Insurance policies are standardized to go from A-L, but the prices of the policies can vary in price. You must compare the prices, the reputation of the company, and the company’s customer service, and then make a choice. In certain states, there are exceptions to this A-L rule. A way to choose a policy is to check a web-site (like Medicare Supplemental.com) online. All the states are listed, click on your state and obtain quotes. If you don’t own a computer go to the library and do some research on the various companies and call the individual companies. Choosing to call Medicare’s trained specialists is an excellent option in choosing a Medicare Supplemental Insurance policy. Choose a policy that is affordable to you and provides the benefits you require.
