Medicare Supplement Coverage

Individuals contemplating Medicare supplement coverage will have many decisions to make throughout the whole process. Uncertainties of what Medicare supplement coverage insurance is or what the difference is between Medicare, Medicaid, and Medicare supplement coverage often lead to questions that can be answered by the Experts.

What is Medicare supplement coverage insurance?

Medicare supplement coverage insurance also known as Medigap or Medicare supplemental insurance is health insurance plans that are sold to Medicare beneficiaries. It provides coverage for medical expenses that are not or only partly covered by Medicare. Medicare supplement is to cover the “gap” between the costs that Medicare reimbursed and the total amount charged.

I will turn 65 on 9 Jan 2013. I have Full medical coverage from Aetna which I will retain for life and which comes from a career with the Dept. of Defense. Do I need to purchase Medicare part B in addition to other coverage?

You would need to sign up for Medicare B and A. The Aetna coverage that you have will work like Medicare supplement coverage when you qualify for Medicare. You should check if your Aetna health insurance will cover prescription drugs like the Medicare part D plan does, so that you don’t have to buy the separate part D plan.

I am 70 and my spouse is 71. I need to know what they will take from me for my spouse’s extended stay at a nursing home. Need to conserve my estate. What can Medicare do for me?

l If your spouse qualifies for Medicare and the nursing home is Medicare eligible, then Medicare will cover 100% for the first 20 days of their care. They can also pay the difference between the full cost and the actual cost for another 80 days. Medicare supplement coverage will usually pay the 80 days if the individual carries the insurance and the right policy.

What is the difference between Medicare, Medicaid and Medicare supplement coverage?

Medicare is a federal health insurance program for individuals 65 years and older and those with disabilities. Medicare is comprised of different plans. Part A is hospital insurance. Part B is optional medical insurance.

Medicaid is a health program that provides coverage for individuals with low incomes or extremely high medical bills. Medicaid includes services like care in a nursing home or home health care services.

Medicare supplement coverage (Medigap) reimburses out of pocket expenses that are not covered by Medicare. Medicare supplement coverage has 12 policies – Plans “A” through “L”.

My spouse and I are paying for a Medicare supplement plan. We are on a fixed income of a combined 1,657.00 per month. Do we qualify for any free supplement plans?

Medicare is a form of government assistance and does have some gaps in coverage. That is why paying for a Medicare supplement coverage makes senses. This coverage will help with the out of pocket expenses that Medicare does not cover. Medicare supplemental coverage is not mandatory and it considered being more like a luxury. With that being said there no government programs to assist with the cost of the Medicare supplement coverage. Medicare supplemental insurance is covered by private policies.

Getting the right kind of information about Medicare supplement coverage can help when faced with questions about Medicare supplement insurance. Experts can help answer what Medicare supplement coverage insurance is or what the difference is between Medicare, Medicaid, and Medicare supplement. Get the answers fast and affordably by asking an Expert.

  • I accepted 2 checks totaling $850 from an person I thought

    I accepted 2 checks totaling $850 from an person I thought I could trust on November 15 and 17th. I found out on November 20 both checks were drawn on closed account. One of the accounts was closed since Oct 29, 2014. I have been in contact with this person and he has repeatedly lied on saying he was going to meet me with the I am almost there game everyday from 7:30am-1am. My checking account is in the negative and I have not been able to buy food, personal items, gas, or have a Thanksgiving meal since this happened back on November 20th. As of today he owes me $996 and will be having a $10 late fee for my utility bill and a late fee for my car payment because funds I had available has been taken by his actions. I don't know what to do to resolve this.
  • would this be considered rape?? my girlfriend and i had

    would this be considered rape??
    my girlfriend and i had been dating for about 5+ months. we had been having sex for about a week.
    we were in my dorm room messing around and were about to have sex. i did not have a condom and previously we had used one. i knew that she would highly prefer that i use a condom, but i was hoping to have sex without because i enjoyed it more and she was on birth control. my gf was hesitant about moving forward but i told her it would be fine and nothing would happen. i kind of just said like c'mon let's just try.we started very slowly and within maybe 10 seconds either i stopped because she was not responding or she actually said "stop" and we immediately did. when she turned around she started crying and i asked what was wrong. she said she was very concerned that she could still get pregnant so we did not continue. i basically said i was sorry but also kept telling her the percentage that she could get pregnant on birth control is extremely small.
    we had sex a number of times after this with no issue and were together for a year and a half.
    with many stories circulating in the media regarding rape and what really constitutes it i just thought back to this time and wondered if this could be considered? i feel pretty guilty about how things went down regardless.
