Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans In New York With Empire

Medicare Supplement insurance plans, also called Medigap, help pay for deductibles and coinsurance that Original Medicare doesn’t cover.

Your Medicare Supplement Options

 

You can enroll in a Medicare Supplement plan if you already have Original Medicare Part A and Part B , and you live in New York.

 

With Medicare Supplement coverage, you can use any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare patients. Empire offers Medicare Supplement plans, all of which cover 100% of Part A and Part B coinsurance. All of our plans also include SilverSneakers® fitness memberships .

Medicare Supplement Plan B

 

Plan B has all the same coverage options as Medicare Plan A, but with the added benefit of coverage for the Part A deductible.

F

Medicare Supplement Plan F

 

Plan F covers Medicare deductibles and some copayments and coinsurance. Per government regulation, Plan F is only available if you first became eligible for Medicare before January 1, 2020.

Medicare Supplement Plan N

 

Plan N helps pay for Medicare Part A and Part B coinsurance costs. You'll be responsible for deductibles and copayments, but you'll have lower monthly premiums.

Prescription Drug Coverage

 

Medicare Supplement plans do not include prescription drug coverage, but you can purchase a Part D plan for an additional premium to help cover medication costs.

Medicare Supplement Or Medicare Advantage?

 

You can have a Medicare Supplement plan or a Medicare Advantage (Part C) plan but not both.
Here are some key differences to help you choose.

Medicare Supplement Plans

  • Offer the option to purchase a Part D prescription drug plan.
  • Allow you to keep the same coverage once you’ve enrolled in a plan, with no need to renew (as long as you pay your premium).
  • Allow you to see any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare patients.
  • Move with you, if you relocate.
     

Medicare Advantage Plans

  • Include dental, vision, and hearing coverage, and most also cover prescription drugs.
  • Can change and do not offer guaranteed lifetime coverage once you’ve enrolled.
  • Can be a PPO or HMO.
  • Can have a $0 premium.
  • Can only move with you if the plan is available in your area.
