Thank you for stopping by and visiting my website! Although I work with a variety of different insurance products from term life, dental, final expense, critical illness (CI), and linked-benefit long-term care (LTC) insurance, my primary focus and area of expertise is with Medicare Supplement insurance, which is also known as “Medigap” because it picks up the "gap" in coverage that Medicare doesn’t cover.
Nationwide, there are 10 standardized Medicare Supplement plans to choose from (Plan A through Plan N). Please see the chart to the right. The word “standardized” means that the benefits and coverage for every Plan F, Plan G, etc. are exactly the same no matter what insurance carrier you are with, so it is now much easier to shop around and compare “apples with apples,” Plan F with Plan F, Plan G with Plan G, etc.
In California and in most states, rates are based on your "attained" age, so they are constantly changing and they go up in price as you get older. Besides your age, there are other variables that can affect rates such as your zip code, whether you live alone, are married, have a roommate, and whether you're a smoker.
Although Medicare Supplement plans are standardized, the rates (premiums) that various insurance carriers charge for these products are not standardized, and there is a significant difference in price from one insurance carrier to the next for the same identical plan and coverage!
For example, in the 92056 zip code in San Diego, CA, the Plan F rates for a 72 year old female range from $165 to $307 per month ($1,980 to $3,684 per year)! That is a difference of $1,704 per year from the lowest to the highest Plan F Medicare Supplement in the 92056 zip code!
In other words, some 72 year old individuals in San Diego are paying $165 per month for their Plan F Medicare Supplement insurance while others are paying $284 per month for theirs, for the same identical plan and coverage!
