Medicare supplement insurance in the Mid-Atlantic Region.
Medicare supplement insurance can be a complicated topic. Our experts can help you to determine which plan is the best fit for you.
Medicare insurance is a government-sponsored health insurance program available to most people aged 65 or older and who have paid into Social Security. It’s divided into several sections with differing costs and choices.
Why enroll in a Medicare Supplement plan?
- It helps pay the portion of approved expenses not covered by Medicare.
- With no network, you can choose any doctor or hospital that accepts Original Medicare.
- Coverage is guaranteed if you enroll in the first six months of Medicare Part B eligibility. Talk to your agent about exceptions that may apply to guaranteed coverage.
Part A covers hospital treatment costs. In most cases there’s no premium payment, but recipients pay a deductible and also pay some coinsurance depending upon their medical treatments throughout the year.
Part B covers medical treatments outside of hospitals. Part B has an annual premium that is dependent on the recipient’s income and Social Security benefits. Recipients also pay a deductible and coinsurance.
Medicare recipients can also opt to take out a Medicare Advantage plan—sometimes called Part C. This means that the recipients will still pay for the Part B premium, but will get more choice over the balance of costs (premium, deductible and coinsurance) and coverage. They may also get coverage for services such as vision, hearing and dental that aren’t covered by ordinary Medicare.
Whichever plan you choose, the costs of prescription drugs are covered by Part D.
Health care and out-of pocket costs for Medicare participants are on the rise, making the need for supplemental insurance even greater. With the advice of your Erie agent, selecting a Medicare Supplement plan can set your mind at ease.
