If trying to figure out how Medicare works in case of a major illness gives you a headache, here’s an easier way to make sense of your Medicare coverage. With standardized Medigap plans, your risk of being burdened with big medical bills that Medicare will not pay has already been calculated.

You can review 10 different kinds of Medicare Supplement Insurance and see exactly where Medicare exposes you to financial risk for healthcare expenses. By standardized, I mean that every Medigap Plan A, for instance, includes the same coverage regardless of which insurance company offers it. Plan A has the fewest benefits, and all other Medigap plans include Plan A’s coverage and add more help to protect you from doctor and hospital bills.

Don’t let confusion over Medicare deprive you of getting the healthcare you need at a manageable price. Medigap Insurance breaks down what Medicare pays for and can pick up the doctor and hospital bills you’ll have to pay for out of your own pocket.
