Allstate Medicare Supplement plans
Medicare Supplement coverage is the most comprehensive coverage you can have. Medigap plans work together with Original Medicare to help cover your Medicare out-of-pocket expenses for hospital stays and other medical expenses.
Medicare Supplements pays for your portion of the cost of the services rendered under Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B.
Many Medicare beneficiaries prefer these plans because of the freedom to choose their doctors and because they are less restrictive than other supplemental Medicare options.
Medicare Supplement Insurance offers ten different plan letters from which to choose. Not all plans are offered by all carriers or in all areas.
