Medicare Part D Plans and New Jersey Medigap Policies Work Together
While you’re looking at Medicare Prescription Drug plans, it’s a good idea to shop for supplemental Medicare insurance that will cover some or all of the excess costs not paid by Original Medicare. Even with the new healthcare law reforms, Medicare only covers about 80 percent of the hospital and doctor bills incurred by most seniors in New Jersey, leaving you to handle the rest. A Medigap policy protects you from big bills, giving you peace-of-mind. We make it easy to find the lowest cost policy available in New Jersey with our complete catalog of Medigap policies for seniors living in New Jersey.
