Medicare Supplement Plans
Medicare Supplement plans, also called Medigap, help cover deductibles, coinsurance, and copays that Original Medicare‡ doesn’t cover.
With a Medicare Supplement plan, you can see any doctor who accepts Medicare patients. You can also purchase a prescription drug plan to help pay for medications.
Medicare Part D
If you only need prescription drug coverage, Empire offers standalone Part D plans.
You can also purchase a prescription plan in addition to your Medicare Supplement plan, but remember, most Medicare Advantage plans already cover medications.
