Important Facts to Help You Choose the Right Medicare Supplemental Plan
Determining which Medicare Supplement Plan is best is important because some of the plans leave the recipient “holding the bag” for extra fees. Medicare Supplement Plan F covers all of the Medicare Part B excess charges, providing you with better protection.
• You have to have Medicare Part A and Part B in order to be eligible for a Medicare Supplement policy.
• You have to pay an insurance company a monthly premium for a Medicare Supplement policy.
• You have 6 months after enrolling in Medicare part B to secure a Medicare Supplement policy.
