Medicare Supplement

Less than 60% of Medical Costs Are Actually Covered by Medicare

One of the great benefits that Americans receive as they mature is Original Medicare. However, Americans who qualify are surprised to discover that all medical costs are not covered under the government-sponsored plan. In fact, Original Medicare covers less than 60% of medical expenses. With all the deductibles, co-pays and exclusions, many seniors are left with burdensome medical expenses and are wondering what their options are to help cover these additional costs.

A Medigap or Medicare Supplement private insurance policy provides coverage for those medical expenses either partially covered or not covered at all by Medicare. All plans are standardized by the government. However, while the benefits are the same from one company to the next, there are still many options to choose from, and premiums and extra costs may vary significantly. It is important to be well-versed in those options before sitting down to make a decision.

At David A. Crotts & Associates, we represent many of the strongest Medicare Supplement carriers in the industry. Our team will help you explore the options available. Contact us today for more information.

"Just a thank you to Mitzi Randall for her great help with Edgefield Ambulance Service billing mistakes. Two minutes on the phone with her and she saved me hundreds of dollars and hours on the phone with them and United Health. P.S. Get her a bigger voicemail box and a raise!"
