Medical Costs Not Paid By Medicare
Consisting of two basic parts, Medicare Part "A" provides certain hospital services; while Part "B" refers to coverage for visits to a doctor's office as an outpatient and is subject to additional paid premiums. Gaps in the coverage within both Parts can result in thousands of dollars of extra medical expenses. An affordable Medicare Supplement Insurance plan will cover the cost of medical expenses not paid by Medicare.
Extra Insurance Protection Means More Benefits
Medicare supplement plans are recognized wherever basic Medicare is accepted, and Medicare Supplement insurance plans allow you to choose your own doctor or specialist (who accepts Medicare patients) and may also enable you to coordinate billing services with your basic Medicare plan to streamline processing and save time.
A medicare supplement (Medigap) plan will also allow you the freedom to see any doctor in any state that has agreed to accept Medicare. So a great solution for individuals who travel often to other states.
Original Medicare and any Supplement you may purchase does not cover Dental, Vision, Hearing or most Long-term care needs. For these benefits you may want to consider a insurance plans that do cover these additional needs.

Prices range from $12 for a discount plan to $99 for the most comphrensive dental plan with $5,000 in coverage. The most common plans are about $50 per month.
If you find that your eyesight is not what it used to be, then being able to see an ophthalmologist or optometrist is necessary for you to keep your quality of life.
