In the current economic climate, everyone wants to get more for less wherever possible. In most aspects of everyday life and finances, this is not a realistic possibility. However, with Medicare Supplement insurance, you often can actually get more (or at least the same) for less.
Medicare Supplements are Federally-standardized (since 1992) and each company is required to provide the exact same coverage plans. So, with that in mind, you can be assured that there is no variability in the coverage offered under a “like” plan or the way that plan is going to pay claims. Everything is standardized.
If you have a Medicare Supplement plan currently, you are likely in the 88% (SMS, 2009) of individuals who are eligible to save money on their supplement insurance for equal (or in some cases, higher) coverage.
