Hello to whomever answers my question and thank you for your time and patience. I have a question and I am not sure exactly who can help me.
I am checking into SUPPLEMENTAL health insurance (they already have medicare) for an older family member and I do NOT know where to start . . . or even who offers this insurance. I was told there are 14 different types??? And I think: if I cannot understand all of this - how is an older person to understand??
Anyway - after being so longwinded: WHERE do I find the companies who offer this supplement and a breakdown of the coverage so I can help the person make an informed decision??

I can appreciate the effort you are making.

The best information source for this is direct from Medicare.

They offer the correct information while insurance sites can be misleading.

Look up this Medicare site for information about supplemental insurance - called Medigap:

Also look up this link to search for supplemental insurance sites:

I think these two sites will give you all the information you want.

Hope this shows you the way forward.

Please remember to rate my service once you have all the information you need. If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond. Thank you!
