Ohio Medicare Supplement Plans
Medicare supplement plans available in Ohio this year are A, B, C, D, F, High Deductible F, G, K, L, M and N. Every plan has different benefits that pay some or all costs that original Medicare does not. Offered by private insurance companies, they are required to comply with both state & federal regulations. ‘Standardized’ makes these Ohio Medigap plans easier to compare. Let’s rephrase that because it is important:
Example: A Plan G sold by Medical Mutual, must by law, provide the same exact benefits as plan G offered by Aetna, or any other company!
Although plans A-N provide different benefits and copayments, comparing Medicare supplement plans in Ohio isn’t as hard as it might appear.
It is important to compare plan choices. Using our guide can help get a plan that will fit your healthcare needs without overpaying.
Important Note: If a medical service provider accepts Medicare they will also accept your Ohio Medigap insurance plan. Medicare will still pay first as it is your primary coverage. Then your Medigap plan will pay its share.
In order to be eligible for a Medigap plan, you must have Medicare Part A and B. You may first apply during the so called ‘initial enrollment’ which is typically within 6 month of your initial enrollment. Insurance companies must accept you during this time, even when you have a pre-existing medical condition. If you enroll at a later time, an insurer does not have to accept your application unless you match the ‘underwriting’ requirements, which means you may have to go through health screening. There are, however, certain situations that give you a ‘guaranteed issue right‘.
