NJ Medigap Policy Essentials

Consider these factors before purchasing a New Jersey Medigap plan:

  • You must have both Medicare Part A and Part B to buy a Medigap policy.
  • Besides the Part B premium, you’ll pay a monthly premium to the private insurance company for your Medigap coverage.
  • Medigap policies are designed for individual coverage; spouses need separate policies. However, you can still qualify for a Household Discount. Find out more about Medigap household discounts.
  • Different insurance companies offer varying prices for the same Medigap policy.

When to enroll in a New Jersey Medigap Plan

NJ, like many states, provides a Medigap Open Enrollment Period (OEP), which is a one-time six-month timeframe known as the initial enrollment period.

Within this OEP:

    • You have the right to purchase a Medicare supplement policy, and insurance companies cannot deny you coverage regardless of your health condition.

    • Companies may ask health-related questions on the application.

    • Premiums cannot be increased based on your medical history.

Keep in mind that the term “Open Enrollment” does not refer to an annual event. It is a one-time opportunity that only occurs when you are first eligible for Medicare in New Jersey. If you missed your Open Enrollment Period, don’t worry! You can still enroll in a MedSup plan but the rules will be slightly different.

Medigap for under 50 in New Jersey

In most states, those under 65 who qualify for Medicare due to a disability have to pay high prices for Medigap. In 1995, the state of New Jersey made a law that states that at least one insurance company (called the Contracted Carrier) must offer Medicare Supplement coverage to people under 50 who qualify for Medicare due to disability.

The Contracted Carrier has to provide coverage to anyone under 50 who applies for Medicare Supplement within 12 months of enrolling in Medicare Part B. 

The premium (the amount you pay for the coverage) for the Medicare Supplement Plan cannot be higher for people under 50 compared to those who are 65 years old and buying the same plan. The cost cannot be based on the person’s health, age, or previous claims.

As of January 1, 2020, the Contracted Carrier offers Medicare Supplement Plan D to people who qualify for the Under Age 50 Program.

Medigap for people 50-64 in New Jersey

Those between 50 and 64 who qualify for Medicare due to disability have special rules for Medigap enrollment in New Jersey as well.  For those under 65 but over 50 years of age who are eligible for Medicare due to a disability on or after January 1, 2020, insurance companies must offer Medigap Plan D. They need to apply for this coverage within 12 months of enrolling in Medicare Part B.

The insurance companies cannot charge more than they charge for the same plan issued to someone who is 65 years old. Each year, the insurance company must make sure that they pay out at least 65% of the money they collect in premiums for individual policies.
