Do you ever wonder which Medicare Supplements are available in your area and how they work? First, it is important to know, you must have Medicare Part A and Part B to receive a Medicare Supplement. All Medicare supplements are standardized and any plan is guaranteed renewable, even if you have health issues. The carrier cannot cancel your plan as long as you are paying the monthly premium. Although every carrier offers the same plans, the rates are different based on age, gender, tobacco usage, location and sometimes health conditions.
Each carrier does implement rate increases each year for every plan. You will receive a letter from the carrier annually, 30 days prior to let you know you are receiving an increase. The average annual rate increase is roughly between 6-10%.
Each carrier has several different plans, such as A, B, C, D, F, G, K, L, M, N. All plans offer the same benefits, but in some cases, additional benefits are offered. You have the flexibility to choose which plan best meets your needs.
