“In 2016, some 13.1 million Americans had Medicare Supplement insurance also commonly referred to as Medigap coverage,” states Jesse Slome, director of the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance (AAMSI). This represents an increase of 7.5 percent from the 12.2 million with coverage in 2015.
