Medicare Supplement Plans in Kansas

Medicare Supplement plans in Kansas are the solution for out-of-pocket costs that come with the federal Medicare program. If you only sign up for basic Medicare benefits, you will pay coinsurance, copayments, excess charges, and deductibles.

Medicare Supplement insurance plans are also known as Medigap plans because they’re designed to fill the gaps in Original Medicare’s basic benefits. Those gaps create out-of-pocket costs that many beneficiaries struggle to cover.

When you enroll in a Medigap plan in Kansas, you trade some or all of those expenses for a monthly premium. Private insurance companies offer the policies, so working with a licensed insurance agent is essential to getting the best rates on your supplemental Medicare insurance policy.

When Can I Apply for a Medicare Supplement Plan?

Your eligibility for a Medigap plan in Kansas starts when you turn 65 and sign up for your basic social security benefits. The best time to enroll is during your Medigap Open Enrollment Period, which lasts for six months and starts the month you sign up for Medicare Part B. You should enroll in a Part D prescription drug plan at the same time.

During the open enrollment period, private health insurance companies are required to give you the following guaranteed issue rights:

  • They must accept your application for the Medigap plan of your choice.
  • They cannot put your application through medical underwriting. That means your rates are not based on pre-existing conditions.
  • They cannot cancel your insurance or increase your rates based on health conditions as long as you pay your monthly premiums.
