Medicare Supplement insurance plans in Colorado cover the out-of-pocket expenses that are your responsibility after Original Medicare insurance pays out. Those expenses are referred to as “gaps” in Original Medicare coverage. Some gaps include excess charges, coinsurance, copayments, and deductibles.
When you enroll in a Medicare Supplement plan in Colorado, you pay one premium to cover those gaps. That’s why the plans are referred to as Medigap policies. You’re eligible to apply for Colorado Medicare Supplement insurance plans after you turn 65 and are enrolled in Medicare Part A and Part B. However, some other rules and deadlines apply, so it’s never too soon to study the plans and compare rates online.
