Why Should I Compare Medicare Supplement plans/rates?
Comparing Medicare Supplement plans is important because the coverage on these plans are the same from company to company; the premium rates are the only things that vary.
In some cases, people just go with the first Medicare Supplement they look at or one that they have heard of, without doing a comparison of their options. It is okay if you want to do it that way - it is, obviously, your choice. However, in many cases, NOT doing a Medicare supplement comparison can lead to simply throwing your money away. In many cases, you can get the equal coverage from an equal company for as much as $100/month difference.
TOP FIVE REASONS TO COMPARE MEDICARE SUPPLEMENT PLANS:
Medigap supplements can reduce, or in most cases, eliminate completely, your out-of-pocket medical costs.
Companies are required to offer standardized coverage but are at liberty to set their own prices. So, premiums vary greatly.
They can give you a set figure for "health care expenses" to plug into your monthly budget, regardless of what happens with your health. In other words, they limit your exposure to catastrophic and rising helath care costs.
It is extremely easy to do. Since the plans were standardized in 1992, comparing them has been easier than comparing any other type of insurance.
The other reason to compare supplement plans for your age and zip code is, simply, rates change. As you probably know if you have been on Medicare, Medicare Supplement rates change from time to time. Because of that, it is always important to know the marketplace and get Medigap quotes and comparisons to make sure you are paying the best possible available rate.
