What to Consider When Purchasing Medigap Plans
It is important to note when selecting Medicare Supplement Plans, you want to focus on two things:
1) Which Plan is Right for You.
Most people go for plan F but it might not be right for you. Since you live in CA you are allowed to switch to a equal or lower benefit plan during the month of your birthday. If you are not sure which plan to pick, go for the one that offers the most benefits because you can always “downgrade” later.
When comparing Medigap providers, consider price. Since all lettered plans are identical in benefits, it’s ok to select the least expensive plan. So Anthem’s Medigap F plan is exactly equal to Aetna’s Medigap F by law. Only difference is price.
Remember: Anthem offers a “new to Medicare” discount of $20 off per month for your first year.
