Medicare: Basics

Quick FAQ

What is Medicare Supplemental Insurance?Medicare Supplemental insurance is also called a Medigap insurance policy. It is a secondary insurance that is only offered to those people who have Original Medicare Medicare part A and B. Medicare Supplemental Insurance helps to cover medical expenses that Medicare part A and part B do not cover.

Those would include things like co-payments, deductibles and other out of pocket expenses. Medicare Supplemental Insurance DOES NOT work with:

  • Medicare C
  • Medicare D
  • Veterans’ Administrative Benefits (VA Benefits)
  • TRICARE
  • Private Insurance
Medicare Supplement Insurance is sold by private insurance companies and it is highly regulated by both State and Federal laws. Plans are Labeled as A, B C, D, F, G, K, L, M and N. Each letter represents a different type of plan. Each lettered plan is always identical regardless of who is selling it. So every Medicare Supplement Insurance plan G is identical to every other Medicare Supplement Insurance plan G, but they are different from other lettered plans such as K, L, and F.

Medicare Part B: What does it Cover?Medicare B covers the outpatient type of services needed to manage a person’s health. This would include medical care needed to prevent illness, and to manage illness when the patient is not admitted to a medical facility, such as a hospital.

Medicare part B covers things like doctors visits, Durable Medical Equipment (DME,) mental health services, lab tests, etc. Medicare part B is paired with Medicare part A and is referred to as “Original Medicare.” The two plans work together to provide comprehensive medical coverage.

Does Medicare Cover Eyeglass Care, Hearing Aids, or Routine Dental Care?Sadly, Medicare does not cover additional services such as eyeglass care, hearing aids or routine dental care. Those basic services were not included in the Medicare list of benefits. To change that, Congress would need to change the Medicare laws to include these services.

The Exceptions are when routine dental care is part of a Medicare covered treatment. An example of this would be a procedure that needed to extract teeth in preparation for the treatment of cancer via radiation therapy. This example shows that while tooth extraction is not a covered Medicare Benefit, it can be covered as part of a Medicare covered treatment.

What is Medicare Part D?Medicare Part D is the Prescription Drug plan that works with both Medicare A and Medicare C (Medicare Advantage.) Though Medicare C plans almost always have a prescription drug plan associated with them. Medicare D is not issued by the government it is bought from private insurance companies.

Medicare D prescription drug plans all must meet a set of criteria in terms of what they offer, but the plans are not identical. They differ in price and what they offer.

Things to be aware of are deductibles, co-payments, and how each plan works with co-insurance. Another consideration is whether or not there is an Annual limit on how much your Medicare D plan will cover. IF you max out an annual limit you will have to pay full price for medications for the rest of the year.

Medicare D works like other insurance plans. You will pay full price for medications until your annual deductible is met. Once the deductible is met your cost for medications will be reduced to a co-pay. You will likely receive a monthly premium to pay to keep coverage in place.
