Comparison chart of Medicare Supplement plans in 2024

Medicare comparison

Medigap plans are standardized supplemental plans for Medicare. The policies available are currently labeled A, B, D, G, K, L, M and N. Each plan offers different options to fill the ‘gaps’ left by original Medicare. Benefits vary from plan to plan. The plan policies are offered by private insurance companies that have to adhere to strict regulations set by the government. Comparing Medigap plans is not as difficult as it may look at first view. However, many Medicare beneficiaries do not take the time to evaluate all their options and may end up with a plan that may not best be suited to their individual health care needs.

As each private insurance company is free to set their own rates for the exact same standardized plan benefits, unfortunately many seniors pay hundreds of dollars too much each year if they don’t take the time to compare quotes from different health insurance companies.

It is a good idea to re-evaluate your Medicare Supplement plan coverage, as Medicare health insurance is a rapidly changing market. In many local areas, due to the high competition in the health insurance sector, Medicare Supplemental insurance companies adjust their premiums each year and often time you may find a better deal when change your insurer.

Before you decide to switch your Medigap policy, make sure to consult with your doctor’s office and pharmacy to make sure they will accept the new plan.
