What questions should I ask about Medicare Supplements for a transplant?

Questions you should ask when looking into Medicare Supplements for a transplant:
  • Will this policy pay the hospital deductible?
  • How expensive is this policy?
  • Are there assistance programs to help purchase these plans?
  • Can I be denied a Medicare Supplement policy?
It is important to consider your options related to obtaining a Medicare Supplement or Medi-Gap policy. Medicare does not cover 100% of charges in most transplant situations.
