Many people are surprised to learn that Original Medicare (Parts A & B) doesn't cover everything. By purchasing a Medicare Supplement (Medigap) plan, you won't have to worry about out-of-pocket costs. Medigap policies "fill in the gaps" for services not covered by Original Medicare, including coinsurance, copays, deductibles, and extended hospital visits. Before signing up for a Medigap plan, you must have Original Medicare.
