Medigap vs Medicare Advantage

Which Supplemental Option Is Best For Your Original Medicare Plan

Medigap vs Medicare Advantage

So what’s the difference between Medicare Advantage and Medigap? Both Medicare Advantage and Medigap are supplemental options to your Original Medicare plan. Medicare Advantage plans work similar to an individual or employer HMO or PPO plan, helping lower out-of-pocket costs with predictable copayments, smaller deductibles and out-of-pocket costs. You can also save money with a Medicare Advantage plan by seeing a doctor within the plan’s network.

On the other hand, Medigap plans work with your Original Medicare to help pay for most or all of your out-of-pocket costs that Original Medicare doesn’t cover, like copayments, coinsurance and deductibles. Medigap plans also give you more flexibility when it comes to doctor choice, because you can go to anyone who accepts Medicare.

You’ll have higher monthly premiums but pay less (or even nothing) when you receive care. Unlike Medicare Advantage plans, Medigap plans do not include prescription drug coverage—you have to purchase a separate Part D plan.

It’s important to remember that these two plans do not work together. If you have a Medicare Advantage policy, you cannot enroll in a Medigap plan—and vice versa.

I'm turning 65 early next year and I needed to get a start on Medicare. I saw an ad and reached out to Michelle and she was the sweetest. She helped me right away, and now I don't have to worry about it and can start to enjoy my retirement. Great company!

Worked with Evan on an individual insurance plan for myself a couple years ago, and now my mom needs to get onto Medicare. I called Evan and he helped set my mom up with a Medicare plan with prescription coverage. It was fast, easy, and I feel at ease knowing my mom is taken care of health wise.

Before turning 65 everybody in the world is trying to call you and offer you 1000 plans. I stopped answering my phone. Lucky my girlfriend told me about Michelle. She is so passionate and warm it was like talking to a friend. We ended up with the best policy I have ever had in my life.
