Texas Medicare Supplement Plans
Texas is the second-largest state in the United States, after Alaska, and has a population of 28 million with the senior population making up 12%. Cancer followed by coronary heart disease is the leading cause of death in Texas within seniors. Having insurance coverage is significant due to the financial burden not having it can cause. Seniors look to purchase for Medicare Supplement policies to help with any surprising healthcare costs that can arise during their aging years.
Texas Medicare Facts
- Texas has approximately 3.7 million residents enrolled in Medicare. (2015, kff.org)
- Approximately, 724,000 beneficiaries have a Medicare Supplement Plan or “Medigap” policy. (2015, AHIP.org)
- The top three popular plans in Texas are Plan F, G, and N. (2015, AHIP.org)
Since Medigap policies work in conjunction with Original Medicare coverage, to purchase a Medicare Supplement, it is important to have Medicare Parts A and Part B. A Texas Medicare Supplement can help cover the “gaps” not covered with Original Medicare. Like most states, there are currently ten Medicare Supplemental plans available to seniors living in the state of Texas. Each plan is labeled with a letter from A through N. Each plan provides the same basic benefits with some offering additional benefits. To enroll in a plan, the best time to do so is during the Medigap Open Enrollment Period. This period begins the month you turn 65 and enrolled in Medicare Part B. Insurance providers cannot deny you Megidap coverage. However, after this period, you may undergo medical underwriting and be denied coverage because of disabilities or pre-existing health conditions.
