Medicare Supplement Insurance Basics
Original Medicare helps cover the costs of a wide range of medical services and supplies. However, it includes out-of-pocket costs such as coinsurance, copayments, and deductibles that can add up quickly. Medicare Supplement Insurance plans are sold by private insurance companies to help pay for these costs, filling in some of those coverage gaps.
