Tennessee Medigap Plans are like a safety net for your wallet, covering costs that Original Medicare doesn’t cover such as copays, coinsurance, and deductibles.

Tennessee Medigap Plans fill in the gaps left by Medicare.

Tennesse Medigap Plans Basics

Thinking about a policy in TN? Here are the key details:

  • You must have Medicare Parts A and B to purchase a Medigap policy.
  • With Original Medicare and Medigap, costs are divided between Medicare and the policy.
  • Some Medigap plans cover extras like emergency foreign travel, not included in Original Medicare.
  • Medigap plans don’t do prescription drug coverage.
  • All Medigap policies follow federal and state laws, labeled as “Medicare Supplement Insurance.”
