Medicare supplement plans in Eastern Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley and Pocono regions, as well as in Central New Jersey.

Medicare supplement plans can be a complicated topic. Our experts can help you to determine which plan is the best fit for you.

Medicare insurance is a government-sponsored health insurance program available to most people aged 65 or older and who have paid into Social Security. It’s divided into several sections with differing costs and choices.

Part A covers hospital treatment costs. In most cases there’s no premium payment, but recipients pay a deductible and also pay some coinsurance depending upon their medical treatments throughout the year.

Part B covers medical treatments outside of hospitals. Part B has an annual premium that is dependent on the recipient’s income and Social Security benefits. Recipients also pay a deductible and coinsurance.

Medicare recipients can also opt to take out a Medicare Advantage plan—sometimes called Part C. This means that the recipients will still pay for the Part B premium, but will get more choice over the balance of costs (premium, deductible and coinsurance) and coverage. They may also get coverage for services such as vision, hearing and dental that aren’t covered by ordinary Medicare.

Whichever plan you choose, the costs of prescription drugs are covered by Part D.

**For Plans K and L, after you meet your out-of-pocket yearly limit and your yearly Part B deductible ($183 in 2017), the Medigap plan pays 100% of covered services for the rest of the calendar year.

*** Plan N pays 100% of the Part B coinsurance, except for a copayment of up to $20 for some office visits and up to a $50 copayment for emergency room visits that don’t result in an inpatient admission
