Medicare Supplement Insurance has you covered!
Your coverage can’t be changed or canceled when you move anywhere within the United States, as long as you pay your premiums on time.
You’ll find plans that cover emergency care when you’re out of the country.
Want to choose your doctor?
You can see any doctor who accepts Medicare patients. There are no network restrictions.
You can apply if you:
- Live in a state where we offer the policy
- Have Medicare Parts A and B (and continue to pay your Part B premium)
- Are age 65 or older or, in some states, under age 65 due to disability or end-stage renal disease (ESRD)
If you have Medicare and other health insurance or coverage, each type of coverage is called a “payer.” When there’s more than one payer, “coordination of benefits” rules decide which one pays first. The “primary payer” pays what it owes on your bills first, and then sends the rest to the “secondary payer” (supplemental payer) to pay. In some rare cases, there may also be a third payer.
- The insurance that pays first (primary payer) pays up to the limits of its coverage.
- The one that pays second (secondary payer) only pays if there are costs the primary insurer didn’t cover.
- The secondary payer (which may be Medicare) may not pay all the uncovered costs.
- If your employer insurance is the secondary payer, you may need to enroll in Medicare Part B before your insurance will pay.
If the insurance company doesn’t pay the claim promptly (usually within 120 days), your doctor or other provider may bill Medicare. Medicare may make a conditional payment to pay the bill, and then later recover any payments the primary payer should’ve made.
- All plans must cover a wide range of prescription drugs that people with Medicare take, including most drugs in certain protected classes, like drugs to treat cancer or HIV/AIDs. Information about a plan’s list of covered drugs (called a “formulary”) isn’t included in this handbook because each plan has its own formulary. Many Medicare drug plans and Medicare health plans with drug coverage place drugs into different levels called “tiers” on their formularies. Drugs in each tier have a different cost. For example, a drug in a lower tier will generally cost you less than a drug in a higher tier.
