Colorado Medicare Supplement Plans
The state of Colorado is home to 5.5 million Americans where 12.7% of the population are seniors age 65 and older. As people age, the risk of developing diseases increase due to many factors. It is very crucial for seniors to get proper preventive screenings. According to Colorado.gov, Colorectal Cancer Screening was the top preventive screening conducted by seniors in 2016.
Colorado Medicare Facts

- Roughly, 165,000 Medicare beneficiaries are enrolled in a Colorado Medicare Supplement Plan or “Medigap” policy (2015, AHIP.org).

Colorado Medicare Supplement Plans can help cover the costs Original Medicare does not cover. Like most states, there are ten standard Medigap plans each identified with a letter from A through N. The best time to sign up for a Colorado Medicare Supplement Plan is during the Medigap Open Enrollment Period. This period begins on the first day of the month you turn 65 or older and enrolled in Medicare Part B. During OEP, you are able to enroll in a Medigap policy without being denied coverage if you have a disability or health issues. If you decide to enroll after the Open Enrollment Period, you may be subject to medical underwriting and coverage could be denied.
