What is Medicare Supplemental Insurance and why do I need it?

Medicare Supplemental policies, also known as "Medigap" plans exist to provide coverage to fill the gaps for costs not covered by Original Medicare - (which typically covers 80% of medicare approved services).  These Medicare Supplemental plans are standardized (the exact same) but the costs are not and do vary from company to company.  


That is why it's important to call us at Senior Benefits Network,  as independent insurance agents we work with a multitude of companies to shop your plan type and rates to provide the right option for your needs and budgets. 


No need to pay more for the  same standardized plan that provides the same  coverage!
