Connecticut Medicare Supplement Plans can be a great financial choice for seniors who have Original Medicare. Medicare Supplements, or Medigap policies, help pay for copayments, deductibles, and coinsurance that Medicare Parts A and B do not cover. In Connecticut, there are ten Medicare Supplement Plans each labeled with a letter from A through N. Each plan benefits are consistent across plans of the same letter. For example, Plan F will have the same benefits regardless of the insurance provider. The only difference are the costs of the premiums with each private insurance provider. The best time enroll in a Medigap policy is during the Medigap Open Enrollment Period which starts the month you turn 65 or older and enrolled in Medicare Part B.
