Medicare Supplement Plans in Wyoming

Medicare Supplement plans in Wyoming allow beneficiaries to pay one monthly premium instead of the many out-of-pocket costs that come with Original Medicare. In addition, each Medicare Supplemental plan offers a standardized set of Medicare benefits designed to enhance the original federal Medicare program. It’s not difficult to sign up for Medicare Supplement plans in Wyoming if you have the correct information and do your homework first.

Medicare Supplement Plan options in Wyoming

There are 10 Medigap policies plus two high-deductible plan options for Wyoming beneficiaries. Five of those plans offer the most comprehensive coverage and are suitable for most beneficiaries. Use the following information to compare your Medicare Supplement plan options, and contact our Policy Guides if you need more information or guidance.

Medicare Plan F

Suppose your Medicare Part B effective date is before January 1, 2020. In that case, you’re eligible to apply for Medicare Supplement Plan F. If your effective date was in 2020 or later, you’re not eligible to apply.

This is the most complete Medigap plan offered in Wyoming, and it includes all of the following plus more:

Medicare Plan G

Medigap Plan G offers the most comprehensive Medicare benefits for enrollees with an Original Medicare effective date after December 2019. It’s also available to beneficiaries with earlier effective dates, so it’s open to anyone.

This plan is identical to Plan F except for the Part B deductible. The plan still includes the Part A deductible, Part B coinsurance, and Part B excess charges.

Medicare Plan N

If you want to lower your monthly premiums a bit while still securing a quality Medigap policy in Wyoming, Plan N is a great option. However, it requires you to pay up to $20 when visiting a doctor and up to $50 when visiting an emergency room.

This plan doesn’t include the Part B deductible or excess charges. Foreign travel emergency care is still offered.

High-Deductible Medigap Plan F

Once you pay the annual deductible, you will access all the benefits of the standard F Medigap plan. The deductible is significantly higher, but the monthly premiums are also extremely low.

In 2022, the deductible is $2,490. After the deductible is met, the plan will cover 100% of the costs.

High-Deductible Medigap Plan G

The high-deductible Plan G option allows you to pay super low monthly premiums while enjoying the full Plan G coverage. The catch is that you need to pay the annual deductible before using those benefits.

In 2022, the deductible is $2,490. After the deductible is met, the plan will cover 100% of the costs.

When can I Apply for a Medicare Supplement Plan?

You are eligible to apply for a Medicare Supplement insurance plan in Wyoming when you turn 65 and enroll in Medicare Part B and Medicare Part A. Medicare beneficiaries will receive the lowest rates when applying during their Medigap Open Enrollment Period.

Here’s a cheat sheet to help you understand the open enrollment period:

  • You must sign up for Original Medicare before applying for a Medigap plan. That includes Medicare Part A and Part B, but a Medicare Part D plan is optional.
  • Your chosen insurer must accept your application for coverage. That’s one of the guaranteed issue rights that only occur during this period.
  • The Medicare insurance company cannot deny you access to the plan. They are legally required to accept all Medicare beneficiaries during their open enrollment period.
  • Your rate is not based on pre-existing conditions during this period.
