For those 65 and older, did you know that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) is who actually writes the Medicare Supplemental Insurance plans? This means that Medigap insurance companies in most states can only sell you a standardized Medigap policy identified by letters A through N. Each standardized Medigap policy must offer the same basic benefits, no matter which insurance company sell it. COST is usually the only difference between Medigap policies with the same letter sold by different insurance companies, according to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services 2015: Choosing a Medigap Policy Guide.
And that is why it is important to have an agent (Me!) that is there for you...bringing to you the best price, policy updates, and customer service throughout the year. If you would like my assistance, please fill out the contact form and I will follow up to see how I can help you. Thank you!!
