Alabama Medicare Supplement Plans
Alabama is home to 4.9 million Americans with seniors (age 65 and up) making up 16% of its total population. In Alabama, coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death in the state. A number of physical and health issues are common as we age and it is important to get the proper coverage to help with the rising costs of healthcare.

Alabama Medicare Supplement Plans can provide additional coverage for out-of-pocket expenses not typically covered by Original Medicare. Just like most states, Alabama has ten standardized Medicare Supplement Plans available for beneficiaries to enroll. Since a Medicare Supplement works in conjunction with Original Medicare, you must have Medicare Part A and Part B to enroll in a Medicare Supplement. Medicare Supplements are available through private insurance companies contracted with Medicare.
