Medicare Supplement Policies
Policies to supplement Original Medicare started soon after Medicare was initiated. These policies are called Medicare Supplement or Medigap policies because they do just that, supplement Medicare and fill in the “gaps” that Medicare leaves unpaid. One of the most important things to remember when understanding these types of policies is that original Medicare pays first, then the supplemental policy.
