Enhance your Original Medicare coverage with our Medicare Supplement plans

Medicare for senior

Get the coverage you want, and lower your out-of-pocket costs with our Medicare Supplement plans (also known as Medigap)

Original Medicare only covers a percentage of your medical costs. Without a Medicare Supplement plan, your out-of-pocket costs can add up quickly.

With a Medicare Supplement plan, your overall health coverage is enhanced. That’s why these plans are also known as Medigap - because they help you pay for some of the healthcare costs that are not covered by Original Medicare. Also, Medicare Supplement plans allow you to see any medical doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare. Some plans even come with additional benefits, such as our popular Medicare Supplement Plan F Extra1. In addition to this plan, we’re excited to introduce our NEW Plan G Extra with up to $2,000 in extra benefits!
