What does Medigap insurance cover?

Dr. Michael Roizen, MD
Internal Medicine

Medigap insurance typically covers some of the healthcare costs that Medicare Parts A and B don’t. That includes co-payments, deductibles and coinsurance (the amount you pay after meeting your deductible). Medigap also sometimes covers some services not offered by Medicare, such as health care outside the country.

For more information about Medigap policies, contact your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP). It provides free education and counseling about Medicare services and programs.
