Medicare supplement plans don’t work like most health insurance plans. They don’t actually cover any health benefits. Instead, these plans cover the costs you’re responsible for with Original Medicare.
People who qualify for Medicare at 65 have multiple options. One of the options is called Part C Medicare Advantage. These plans for the most part include Part D drug coverage within the policy. The other type of policy is called Medigap. Medigap plans are also known as a Medicare Supplement plans.
If you have an Original Medicare plan rather than a Medicare Advantage plan, you also have the option to fill many of the coverage gaps by purchasing a private Medicare supplemental insurance plan, also known as a Medigap plan.
Original Medicare often doesn’t cover all of your medical expenses. Learn more about how a Medicare Supplement Plan (or Medigap Plan) will save you money.

There are many different plans of gap coverage you can purchase to help supplement the medical expenses Medicare will not cover.
