A supplemental insurance plan with Medicare?
I need to find a supplemental plan that will pay ALL of the extra that Medicare doesn't pay and I don't know where to start looking. Do I just start calling major insurance companies? My main concern is the high rate of heart disease that runs in my family and the high cost of surgery, which I hope never happens to me, but if I go by my family history, it will eventually affect me. I have five sisters, 3 that have had bypass surgery and my mother died after heart surgery. The two other sisters have had stents. This is why I need excellent additional coverage.
Is there a site where you can read about supplemental plans to go along with Medicare? If you have a supplemental plan, do you mind sharing the name of the company? Please feel free to email me.
I need to read up on Medicare as this is all new to me. Does Medicare typically pay 80% and I need to find a company that will cover the other 20%?
