This marks the last Part and as they say …  last but not least … Mr. Clark discusses the three options for Medicare Supplemental/Gap Policy. Let it be noted, you most certainly need these, but the good news is this is finally pretty straight forward.

Once again, neatly there is a gold nugget of information in the audio, and a trick on where to find an easy phone number to call to get a referral for help – listen up and enjoy –

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

The Medigap Policy supplemental Plan

Very similar to group Health Coverage (Non HMOish)

  • Patient driven
  • Pick your doctor
  • Pick your provider

First Pick the correct plan: A, B, C, D,  F, G, K, L and N …. Yikes

How do you pick the correct Plan?

  • Some policies cover outside USA
  • Plan F most popular
  • Align your most important needs with the services covered
  • The more you pay … the more covered

Another tool for Picking the correct plan (Texas Only)

Similar to Part C, Medigap Polices are numerous and can be confusing.

You guessed it …  Tom Clark our speaker has another secret website, this time only available to folks living in Texas, enabling them to compare monthly premiums:

 Thanks again Tom for the link to the Rate Comparisons, we hope other states adopt this format as well …. John & J.K. Financial, Inc. 

Have a Great Day!
