Here is a tip from Medicare about buying Medigap plans.
The cost of Medigap policies can vary widely. There can be big differences in premiums that insurance companies charge for exactly the same coverage. As you shop for a Medigap policy, be sure you are comparing the same Medigap policy (for example, compare a Medigap plan F from one company with Medigap plan F from another company).
Each insurance company sets its own premiums. It is important to ask how an insurance company prices Medigap policies. How they set the price affects how much you pay now and in the future. Medigap policies can be priced or “rated” in three ways.
Medigap policies are community rated, attained age rated or entry age rated.
Most Georgia Medicare supplement plans are priced based on entry age but a few are community rated. Bob Vineyard at Georgia Medicare plans can help you understand the differences.
Medigap Plan F and Medigap plan G are the only Medicare Supplement insurance plans that cover costs known as Medicare Part B excess charges. An excess charge is the difference between what a doctor or provider charges and the amount Medicare will pay. These Medigap plans will help protect you from additional out-of-pocket expenses should you need treatment that exceeds what Medicare will approve.
Medigap plan F is the most popular of all the Medicare supplement insurance plans, but it is also the most expensive. Before you buy Medigap plan F make sure you understand your options.
