Medicare Supplement Plans are part of what some call Medicare Part C. The other component of Medicare Part C is Medicare Advantage Insurance, which is covered elsewhere.
Medicare Supplement Plan is designed to cover the 20% of health claims that are not covered by Medicare Parts A & B. This coverage is not cheap, but it addresses the desired purpose of filling in the gaps in coverage created because Parts A & B only cover 80% of the claim costs. However, do not confuse this with Medicare Advantage Plans. They also cover the gap but they have various limitations and deductibles.
Medicare Supplement Plan is different from Medicare Advantage Insurance and is in many cases more expensive, but it does fill the 20% of claim costs not covered by Medicare parts A & B.
However, the trend in medicare insurance is toward the Medicare Advantage Plans where each procedure, each drug, each treatment, each specialty, etc., is covered by a separate coverage limit and some form of deductible or co-pay. Which is why generally you hear more advertising about Medicare Advantage Plans than Medicare Supplement Insurance. However, both are part of Medicare Part C.
EINSURANCE recommends that it is best, as a new user of Medicare Coverages, to start with Medicare Supplement Insurance and Medicare Part D (Drug Coverage) and then transfer to Medicare Advantage Plans once you are fully aware of all your medical issues and what coverages and drugs are most important to you. You can change your selection each year during the open enrollment period (also called, OEP).
