What Is Medigap?

Medigap plans exist to fill the gaps that exist in Medicare. These gaps are areas where Medicare does not cover certain costs, leaving members to pay them out-of-pocket. Some people prefer to have their costs minimized by purchasing a Medigap plan. The plans pay a portion of approved costs, sometimes leaving you with nearly no out-of-pocket expenses.

How Does Medigap Work?

In exchange for premium payments, your Medigap plan will pay for the costs listed in the policy. How much your plan will cost varies based on location and medical underwriting. Though, underwriting isn’t always necessary when enrolling in a Medigap plan. For example, if you enroll in a Medigap plan during your Medigap Open Enrollment Period, there will be no underwriting. This can lower costs dramatically, so it’s always best to enroll during Medigap Open Enrollment. 

If you don’t know, Medigap Open Enrollment starts right when your Part B benefits become active. The period lasts for six months.

If you apply for a Medigap plan during the Medigap Open Enrollment Period, you are guaranteed to be approved at the lowest rates available. The Medigap Open Enrollment Period begins as soon as your Medicare Part B benefits kick in. The period ends six months later, giving you plenty of time to get your benefits sorted.

Once you’ve enrolled, you just need to pay a monthly premium to keep your benefits active.

Medigap Plan N is one of the most popular Medigap plans. It is nearly comprehensive, though participants do have to pay copayments for office visits and E.R. visits. Apart from that, here is what is covered by Medigap Plan N:
