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.
Both Medicare Advantage and Medicare Supplement allow you to fill the gaps in coverage that are found in original Medicare. However, Advantage and Supplement plans will vary depending on costs, coverage and the provider network (HMO, PPO and PFFS). Therefore, you’ll need to compare these policies to choose the ideal combination of Medicare policies for your situation.
