What is Medigap? Medigap helps supplement original Medicare. Medicare only covers up to eighty of your medical expenses in many cases leaving you a gap, a MEDIGAP. Medigap offers maximum coverage for the other twenty percent. Filling in the Gaps! Medicare has four parts for coverage. Part A. Part B. Part C. And Part D. Once an individual turns 65 they may automatically qualify for certain medicare benefits and services. Medigap Insurance can start as soon as Part B coverage is activated. Medicare Part A helps cover against catastrophic events, in patient care in hospital, skilled nursing facility, hospice, and home health care. An average knee replacement, hip replacement or heart attack can cost you forty thousand dollars or more, leaving you with eight thousand dollars or more to pay. Let Medigap help cover that for you. Medicare Part B helps cover doctors, and other health care provider services, hospital out patient care, durable medical equipment, and home health care.
