For those with Medicare Parts A and B, a Medicare Supplement Basic plan with optional riders can pay for out-of-pocket costs that Original Medicare‡ doesn’t cover, including:
Your Medicare deductibles
The 20% coinsurance you pay for Part B medical services
Hospital costs after you run out of Medicare-covered days
Skilled nursing facility costs after you run out of Medicare-covered days
You can also go to any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare patients.
Once you’re enrolled, a Medicare Supplement plan can give you peace of mind knowing that your benefits are guaranteed as long as you pay your premiums.
Keep in mind that the plans with the most coverage will have higher premiums.
Additionally, Medicare Supplement plans do not include prescription drug, dental, and vision coverage, but stand-alone plans for these benefits can be purchased for an additional premium.
