Medicare Open Enrollment and Medigap Plans: Clearing Up the Confusion

Posted November 19, 2012

Q: I know this is open-enrollment season for choosing a Medicare plan, but is it open enrollment for picking a Medigap policy, too? How do I go about it?

Medigap insurance plans are also known as Medicare Supplement insurance.

It is a private health insurance plan designed to cover health care costs that are not covered by Original Medicare. Simply, these plans fill the gap in coverage by supplementing your Original Medicare insurance. The policies can pick up some or all of your out-of-pocket expenses such as the 20 percent coinsurance you pay as a Medicare beneficiary for outpatient and physician care (Part B) or your deductible for hospital care under Part A ($1,156 in 2012). It’s a vital policy to own if you’ve opted to remain in Original Medicare.

According to Medicare, there is only one time when federal law allows you to buy any Medigap policy you want sold in your state. It lasts for six months starting the first month that you’re covered under Medicare Part B when you’re 65 or older. During this “open-enrollment” period, insurance companies cannot deny you a Medigap policy or charge you more because of past or present health problems. You don’t want to miss this window.

You can enroll in a Medigap policy during the current open-enrollment season for Medicare plans (Oct. 15-Dec. 7) but, if you’re getting a plan for the first time and are past your one-time six month window described above, you might be charged additionally or rejected.

Every Medigap policy must be approved by Medicare and must follow federal and state laws. The insurance companies offering these plans must sell you standardized policies that are identified by the letters A through N — kind of like alphabet soup. The companies are required to provide the same benefits across the board per the letter-designated policy they sell. Among the 10 million Americans who purchase Medigap policies, half opt for Plan F, which covers most out-of-pocket expenses for Medicare Parts A and B. The second most popular choice is Plan C, capturing 14 percent of the market, according to the trade group America Health Insurance Plans.

The letters signify plans that offer different levels of care and service coverage. Less expensive plans commonly offer fewer benefits with higher out-of-pocket expenses as a trade-off for paying lower monthly premiums. Medigap policies are only sold to people who have Medicare Part A (hospital insurance) and Part B (medical insurance). Medicare beneficiaries who are in an Advantage Plan (Medicare Part C) or receive their health care coverage through the state Medicaid program do not need to purchase a Medigap policy and insurance companies are prohibited from selling members these unnecessary plans.

Generally, Medigap policies don’t cover long-term care (such as living in a nursing home for the long term), vision or dental care, hearing aids, eyeglasses or private-duty nursing. Policies will often, however, cover skilled nursing care following a hospital stay for rehabilitation such as recovery from hip surgery or recovery from a stroke.

If you are looking to remain with Original Medicare during this open-enrollment season, be sure to review your current Medigap plan to see if there have been changes from last year. If you don’t have a policy, make sure you get one.
