Smart Medigap Plans, based in Grapevine, TX, is happy to announce that independent Medicare insurance broker Mike Hagan is offering advice to seniors turning 65 including other seniors in Texas who want to reduce their current premiums He can work with clients to help them get the optimal coverage options they need at the lowest possible price for Medicare Advantage or Medicare supplement plans that are most suitable for their unique needs.
Mike Hagan says, “Medigap plans (Medicare supplement insurance plans) help cover a percentage of the costs that are beyond what Medicare pays. Providers only need to bill Medicare. They do not need to bill the supplement provider directly. When Medicare is billed Medicare will pay their share, which is normally 80% of Medicare-covered benefits. The remainder of the bill is then sent to the Supplement Plan provider so they may pay their share, which is normally 20%. Medigap Plans do not not include Prescription Drug Coverage (Part D). It is important to also have a Prescription Drug Coverage Plan (Part D) to cover your prescription drugs.”
To better understand what Medigap is, it is important to compare this with the original Medicare. In the original version of Medicare, the individual has to pay for some of the costs of approved services. Medigap serves as a Medicare supplement insurance designed to fill the “gaps” in original Medicare and it is provided by private companies. The original Medicare pays for a significant percentage of the cost of covered health care services and supplies while Medigap can help in paying for some of the remaining cost, such as: coinsurance, copayments, and deductibles. As Medicare insurance specialist, Mike Hagan can guide the client through the process of looking for the appropriate Medicare supplement insurance.
