Medicare Supplements, also known as Medigap Plans, require a monthly premium and are an excellent choice for those who prefer to have a set amount they'll pay out each month for their hospitalization and medical care. Medicare Supplements work with Original Medicare and can cover the balance of any Medicare Approved Service you receive. For example when you visit your doctor, the doctor's office sends your charges to Medicare and once Medicare has approved the charges the balance is sent to your Medicare Supplement plan and, depending on the plan you've selected, some or all of the remaining balance is paid. Medicare Supplement plans offer no prescription drug coverage, you will need to also carry a separate prescription drug plan. Medicare Supplements do not offer additional coverages for Dental, Vision, Hearing, Prescription Drugs.
