If you are unhappy with the coverage that you currently have through Medicare, you may want to look into a Medicare supplement policy in 2017, which will provide you with additional coverage on top of the coverage the original Medicare provides. If you’d like to find policies that are available in Arizona for 2017, select your state from our drop-down list. Then, you can compare pricing and policies to choose the one that is best for you and your healthcare needs.
First of all, you could be wondering if you are making the right decision by choosing a Medicare supplement plan in 2017. Another option is to sign up for Medicare Advantage, which is a good choice for many seniors, but you might find that you will be better off with a Medigap policy.
One of the main things that many seniors like about Medigap policies is the fact that the out-of-pocket costs can be lower and more predictable. With Medicare Advantage, you may not have to pay quite as much — or anything at all — in monthly premiums, but you may find yourself paying high deductibles later. With a Medigap plan, you will have reasonable and predictable monthly payments.
Another benefit is the fact that you don’t have to worry about networks or referrals. Many Medicare Advantage plans are now HMOs, meaning that you have to see your primary care physician for everything. You can’t pick your own doctors, and you need a referral to see a specialist with these plans. This is not a problem with a Medicare supplement plan, however, since you’ll still be covered by original Medicare and will be able to see all of the doctors that you have always seen.
Additionally, you do not have to worry about as many annual changes with a supplement plan. Once you choose the plan that is the right fit for you, you shouldn’t have anything to worry about.
These are a few basics that you should know before signing up for a Medigap plan:
