Medicare Supplement Plan G or Plan N?

                The Medicare Supplement plan you choose should be based on a number of important factors. From your personal desires and lifestyle to the quality of your health, certain aspects need to be considered. Obviously, if you are looking for a Medicare Supplement plan, chances are good that you’re already enrolled in Medicare Part A and B. Applying for your Medigap health insurance should not be a difficult process for you. In fact, it has proven to be fairly easy for most senior citizens.

                Before you begin shopping for your Medicare Supplement insurance, you should know that the few common questions you might be asked of insurers.

  • What zip code do you currently reside in?
  • Are you a routine user of tobacco products?
  • What is your gender?
  • What is your current age?
  • How would you describe your current health condition?

          All of these things will be asked of you in order to determine the insurer’s risk in extending health coverage to you.

         Insurance companies who sell Medicare Supplement policies are required to offer you the same basic benefits for each particular plan that they offer. This is because Medigap plans are standardized across the nation. Contrarily, premium prices for these policies are not uniform in nature. The common recommendation is that you do a little comparison shopping before choosing which company you will purchase your policy through.

        To your benefit, many of the top Medicare Supplement insurance providers, like Puritan, are more than willing to provide you with free and personalized quotes for the most comprehensive plans available. A couple of the most popular Medigap plans include Plan G and, the ever-famous, Medicare Supplement Plan N. Be sure to get your free quotes today!
