Medicare options have changed quite a bit over past 5 years.
First, we had the advent of high deductible G plans which are now much more common.
We lost some of the higher end plans whose only benefit was medication coverage since Part D came on board to cover RX costs.
We have also seen the addition of new plans which include more cost sharing but offer lower priced premiums.
Of course, we have to weigh the flexibility of Medicare supplements against the cost savings of Advantage plans.
There's a lot to consider and you're like to

Let's do a quick walk through how Medicare works and the value of Medicare supplements.
We'll then look at which plans have been good values and popular options on the market to address the holes in Medicare.
Let's get started.
Medicare is primarily divided into 3 sections that really matter.
The core benefits for Part A and B work the same way.
Each has a calendar year deductible that you need to meet first.
After you meet this deductible, Medicare will then pick up 80% of the charges and you need to pay the other 20%. There is no cap to this 20% which is the key reason to have type of supplemental coverage for Medicare.
Part D is handled separately with its own plan which revolves around smaller deductibles and copays with different levels of benefits.
A Medicare eligible person generally does not need to pay for Part A but Part B usually requires a monthly premium depending on a person's income.
Part D will also require a separate premium.
So that's the core Medicare program in a nutshell.
Where do the Medigap plans come into play?
Depending on the plan you choose, Medicare supplements will fill in these various holes in Medicare to different degrees.
