What is a Medicare Supplement Plan
A Medicare Supplement Plan is a health insurance plan that complements your regular Medicare coverage. Anthem offers many fine Medicare Supplement Plans to choose from.
How does an Anthem Medical Supplement Plan work?
Although Medicare pays for many health care services and supplies, it doesn’t pay for all of them. You must pay for these gaps in Medicare coverage yourself, including deductibles, coinsurance and co-payments. An Anthem Medicare Supplement Plan will help pay for many or all of these costs depending on the plan.
Who should consider an Anthem Medicare Supplement Plan?
You should consider a Medicare Supplement Plan if you’d like help paying for some of your health care costs that Medicare does not cover, like your Medicare deductible and co-pays for visiting your doctor. An Anthem Medicare Supplemental Plan is also a good idea if you prefer to keep your own doctor and hospital and choose your own specialist and other health care provider.
Who is eligible for an Anthem Medicare Supplement Plan?
You are eligible for a Medicare Supplement Plan if you are enrolled in Medicare Parts A and B and if you are age 65 or older or, in some states, under age 65 with a disability and/or end stage renal disease (plan offerings and eligibility vary by state). You also must be a resident of the state where the policy is offered.
What are the costs?
You will pay a premium each month for your Medicare Supplement Plan. This will vary depending on the plan and company, of course. But it also means you will be covered for all out-of-pocket fees and co-pays that you would otherwise have to pay yourself.
How do I choose a Medicare Supplement Plan?
The best thing to do is to compare coverage and price among different companies. At Anthem we’ve taken great care in creating a choice of Medicare Supplement Plans that include extensive coverage at affordable and competitive rates. We invite you to have a look.
