Medicare Supplement (also called “Medigap”) plans do exactly what the name suggests.

They supplement or fill in the gaps of qualifying health care costs that Medicare doesn’t cover.  Medicare Supplement plans cover care and service that Medicare covers.  They simply can pay costs that Medicare does not pay.

All Medigap plans are standardized.  They are offered by various insurance companies.  Plans are identified by letters.
