Medicare Supplement Explained Three Options 

  • Employer Offered Supplemental Private Insurance – this less often- likely best option if available – best coverage
  • Traditional Medicare – no network must buy a Medigap Policy A through F – Full comprehensive coverage- similar to full health coverage, but at the Medicare Level
  • Medicare Advantage – Like Medicare HMO – Network of People that must go through
  • 26 Medicare Advantage plans in DFW area-
  • Part D may or may not be available for Medicare Advantage
  • Do not try to do this all by yourself- see next
  • Local Non-Profit Agency – Dallas County would likely be the Dallas County Agency on Aging, Fort Worth would be the Tarrant County Agency on Aging
  • Dial – 211 – Phone Number for Social Service Referrals – NO kidding – Texas a state that this number works completely, may not be available in all states
