When you stay on Original Medicare, instead of going the Medicare Advantage route, you are going to need insurance to supplement your Medicare coverage.
If you have Original Medicare with no Supplement, you are left with 20% of all your medical bills, uncapped. While this might not seem like much, medical expenses add up quickly. 20% of a $100 bill is no big deal; 20% of a $10,000 bill, or even a $100,000 bill, is.
Medicare Supplements were designed to cover the gaps of Original Medicare.
There are 10 different Medicare Supplement Plans, all named with letters: Plan A, Plan B, Plan C, Plan D, Plan F, Plan G, Plan K, Plan L, Plan M, and Plan N. All these Plans differ in the type of coverage they offer, but they are standardized.
This means once you pick the Plan you want to go with, no matter who you purchase it from, you will receive the exact same coverage. This makes it easy to shop around, as all you need to compare is the price.
