Select Your State to Learn About Your Medigap Options

You’ll need to select your state to find out what Medigap plans are available in your area. Medigap plans are regulated by federal and state laws, meaning the benefits are the same from state to state. The only exception is Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. These plans are standardized differently in these states. Only two plans are available in Massachusetts, while in Minnesota, there are three. In Wisconsin, plans are standardized differently, but there are additional benefits available, such as coverage for certain preventive services.

In addition to these state-specific differences, Medigap plans may vary in cost depending on where you live. Insurance companies can set their own premiums for Medigap plans, which means that the cost of a specific plan can vary depending on your location, age, gender, and health status. Some states have additional regulations that limit how much insurance companies can charge for Medigap plans, while others do not.
