Medicare Supplement Comparison

At Peritia Advisors, our mission is to provide you with insurance that keeps you healthy and happy, no matter what your situation. Get in touch with us with any Medicare questions you may have.

When you sign up for Medicare, you have an opportunity to sign up for a plan that can extend your Medicare coverage even further. This is the Medicare Supplement Plan. There’s nothing else like it, but you must act quickly – it’s best to join within the first six months of enrolling in Medicare Part A and Part B, because after that, you may not be able to get it at all.

What Are Medicare Supplements?

Medicare Supplements give you coverage after your Medicare benefits have kicked in. Typically when you get a Medicare-covered service or treatment, Medicare will cover as much as it can of your bill and leave the remaining portion up to you. But if you have a Medicare Supplement Plan, your Medicare Supplement can potentially cover all of your out-of-pocket costs, allowing you to get some services free of charge.

There are 10 different Plans:

These vary in the amount of coverage offered, but this variety allows you to choose based on the plan that fits you best.

What Do They Cover?

Below are the different types of costs Medicare Supplements can cover, along with the plans that offer coverage for them. The plans listed cover 100% of the remaining costs unless otherwise indicated.

What Should I Know Before Purchasing?

While Medicare Supplements relieve a significant financial burden, there are some factors to keep in mind when purchasing a policy.

You cannot simultaneously have a Medicare Supplement and Medicare Advantage plan. Medicare Supplements only work with Original Medicare.

This is not something you can purchase by itself. It is not a standalone insurance policy.
