Medicare is health insurance for people 65 and older, under 65 with certain disabilities, and any age with End-Stage Renal Disease (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant). Original Medicare provides medical coverage for doctor and hospital services.
What is Part A?
Medicare Part A is a type of hospital insurance provided by Medicare. The coverage provided by Part A includes inpatient care in hospitals, nursing homes, skilled nursing facilities, and critical access hospitals. Part A does not include long-term or custodial care. If you meet specific requirements, then you may also be eligible for hospice or home health care.
What is Part B?
Medicare Part B is medical insurance; coverage includes (but isn’t limited to) medically necessary doctor services, screenings, outpatient hospital care, and other services that Part A does not cover, such as some physical or occupational therapies and some home health care services. Part B also covers durable medical equipment.
Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Purchase a Medigap Policy
1. Protection against large medical bills
Under Medicare Part B, 80 percent of your total costs may be taken care of, but 20 percent of the bill is still your responsibility
2. Coverage outside of the United States
If you’re on vacation outside the U.S. and an accident or sudden illness happens to you, Medicare Supplement plans will help cover medical expenses outside of the country.
3. Guaranteed acceptance
The best time to buy a Medigap policy is during your Medigap “Open Enrollment Period”. Your Medigap open enrollment period lasts for six months. It starts on the first day of the month in which you are turning 65 or just enrolled in part B of Medicare.
4. Choice of any doctor or hospital
Under most Medigap policies, you’ll be covered if you visit any doctor and hospital that participates in Medicare.
5. Standardized policies
All 10 of the standardized Medigap policies are regulated by law; all the benefits from each separate plan are the same, regardless of who your insurer is or (in most states) where you live. This is important to note when comparing prices with various insurance companies.
