A Medicare Supplement insurance plan in Tennessee covers some of the costs not paid for by Original Medicare (Part A and Part B). These costs might include copayments, deductibles, and other out-of-pocket expenses. A Medicare Supplement insurance plan, also referred to as a Medigap plan, is designed to work with Original Medicare to cover some of these expenses.
Some Medicare Supplement insurance plans in Tennessee might also offer coverage not included with Original Medicare, such as coverage in foreign countries or coinsurance for hospice care. Medigap plans do not include prescription drugs in their coverage. If you are interested in adding prescription drug coverage to your coverage, you may want to consider enrolling in a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan or a Medicare Advantage prescription drug plan (MAPD).
There are 10 different Medicare Supplement insurance plans available in most states. Each plan type is designated with a letter of the alphabet. Plans are standardized by Medicare, so that every plan that falls under a specific letter type will offer identical coverage.
For example, a Plan A will include the exact same coverage no matter what company is offering the plan. Cost of the plan may vary from company to company and county to county within the state. In addition, a Plan C or F will differ from a Plan A in terms of both coverage and costs.
Not every Medigap plan may be available from every insurance company providing Medicare Supplement insurance plans in the state. In addition, the monthly premiums for each plan could vary from company to company. Keep in mind that lower monthly premiums may result in higher out-of-pocket expenses for medical services, so consider both variables when comparing the overall cost of a plan.
If you are interested in a Medicare Supplement insurance plan in Tennessee, it is helpful to become familiar with the different plan types so that you can choose the best plan type for your specific needs. Once a plan type is selected, you can compare plans between various companies to find the one that fits within your budgetary guidelines. Keep in mind that costs will also vary from county to county within the state, so a Part A plan in Shelby County might have a different premium than the same plan in Montgomery County.
