There are ten standardized Medicare Supplement plans that are available each labeled with a letter from A through N. Enrolling in a Medicare Supplement can be done during your Medigap Open Enrollment Period which is a six-month period beginning at the month you turn 65 or older and enrolled in Medicare Part B. During this period, if you enroll, private insurance companies cannot turn you down for coverage regardless of pre-existing conditions or health issues. Although, once this period passes, you can still apply for a Medigap policy but might have difficulty and will require medical underwriting.
