Medicare Benefits

Medicare provides health benefits to those over 65. Those under 65 have the right to get Medicare, but not everyone is eligible. The program is designed for medical expenses but does not include all medical expenses and long-term care. There are options to get Medicare cover. Those claiming original Medicare Part A and Part B can purchase supplemental Medicare policies through an individual private insurer.

Medigap is Medicare Supplement Insurance which is used to fill gaps and is sold through private companies. Medicare provides most if not most of the health care service's expenses. The Medigap insurance program may pay for some of the remainder of the health care costs.

If you are in the Original Medicare Plan and have a Medigap policy, then Medicare and your Medigap policy will each pay their share of covered health care costs. This means your insurance company can drop you only if you stop paying your premium, you are not truthful about something under the policy or the insurance company goes bankrupt.

A Medigap policy is health insurance sold by private insurance companies to fill the “gaps” in Original Medicare Plan coverage. Medigap policies help pay some of the health care costs that the Original Medicare Plan does not cover.
