Navigating healthcare in your golden years shouldn’t feel like a high-wire act, yet for many enrolled in Original Medicare, the gaps in coverage can leave them feeling precariously balanced against potential financial strain. Here at HealthGuys, we understand that your healthcare needs are as unique as you are, which is why we’re dedicated to providing Medicare Supplement Plans (Medigap) that cover the costs Original Medicare doesn’t, ensuring you can walk through your later years with confidence and security.

The Foundation of Original Medicare

Original Medicare, comprising Part A (hospital insurance) and Part B (medical insurance), offers broad coverage but doesn’t cover everything. Enrollees often find themselves facing out-of-pocket expenses such as deductibles, coinsurance, and copayments. These gaps in coverage can create unexpected financial burdens, particularly for those requiring frequent medical care or specialized treatments.

Bridging the Gaps with Medicare Supplement Plans

Medicare Supplement Plans, or Medigap, serve as a financial safety net, designed to fill in the gaps left by Original Medicare. These plans help manage the out-of-pocket costs associated with medical care, making health expenses more predictable and manageable. Whether it’s the Part A deductible or the coinsurance for a lengthy hospital stay, Medigap plans provide the coverage you need to protect your savings and your peace of mind.

Comprehensive Coverage Tailored to Your Needs

Medigap plans cover a wide range of expenses not fully paid by Original Medicare, including:

  • Part A and B deductibles, reducing your upfront costs for medical services.

  • Hospital and coinsurance costs, extending up to an additional 365 days after Medicare benefits are exhausted.

  • Coinsurance for skilled nursing facility care, palliative care, and certain outpatient services.

  • The first three pints of blood needed for a transfusion, a cost not covered by Original Medicare.

  • Emergency medical care during foreign travel, offering peace of mind for those with wanderlust.
