Medicare can be helpful for adults older than 65 years of age who need health insurance. However, sometimes it may fall short of the coverage you truly desire. That’s where medicare supplement insurance comes in. This video explains what a medicare supplement is and why it can improve your health insurance situation.
Medicare is divided into plan A for hospital expenses and plan B for medical coverage, like seeing your primary care doctor or any specialists. Plan A and B may not cover all of the medical expenses associated with a hospital or medical visit, and other health-related services may not be covered at all.
Instead of footing the bill yourself, you can add a Medicare supplement plan to your existing coverage. You are better protected from out-of-pocket medical costs. You also will have more freedom to choose the doctor you want, as your coverage will expand.
Additionally, the medicare coverage will follow you around the country. If you are on vacation and are injured or fall ill, you can go to the doctor knowing you won’t have to worry about being out of network. You also don’t have to worry about losing coverage because of your health or age.
