The West Virginia State Board of Insurance has licensed Globe Life & Accident Insurance Co to sell Globe Life Medigap plans (Medicare Supplement insurance) to West Virginia seniors with Medicare benefits.

Their full range of plans for West Virginia seniors are listed below. You can buy from Globe Life with confidence. They earned a A+ rating from A.M. Best Company, nationally recognized for their financial analysis of insurance carriers.
All insurance companies that sell Medicare Plans must offer Plan A. This is the most basic policy covering the portions of Medicare Part A and Part B that the government doesn’t pay.
West Virginia seniors with Medicare benefits are eligible to apply for a Globe Life & Accident Insurance Co Medigap Plan A policy. It's a Attained Age based premium. We recommend comparing this company's Plan A rate with these carriers:
- UnitedHealthcare Medigap Plan A (West Virginia)
- Continental Life Medigap Plan A (West Virginia)
- Medico Medigap Plan A (West Virginia)
Plan B is available in most states. It covers basic benefits plus your Skilled Nursing coinsurance, but nothing else. In some rare cases, the premium for this policy could make it worth taking on the risk of those things not covered. Most people find a better alternative by choosing a Plan D, G, or H at a similar price.
You can get Plan B in West Virginia from Globe Life & Accident Insurance Co . They use the Attained Age cost method to calculate their monthly rates. Before making your final decision, you might want to compare premiums with these carriers:
- Central States Medigap Plan B (West Virginia)
- Continental Life Medigap Plan B (West Virginia)
- Sterling Investors Medigap Plan B (West Virginia)
Plan C covers every penny of what Medicare approves, up to the approved payment amount. In other words, there are only two instances in which Plan C will not cover what is left of your charges after Medicare pays its share. The first instance is when Medicare doesn’t approve the charge at all. The second is when your healthcare provider charges more than the Medicare approved amount. This is because Plan C does not cover Medicare Part B Excess Charges.
If you take care to avoid the Medicare Part B excess charges, this is an attractive policy, and Globe Life & Accident Insurance Co offers it in West Virginia. The monthly premium is calculated using the Attained Age cost method. Before you make a final decision, be sure to compare. Here are a few companies with good rates:
- Central States Medigap Plan C (West Virginia)
- Sterling Investors Medigap Plan C (West Virginia)
- Forethought Life Medigap Plan C (West Virginia)
Plan F is the most popular of all supplements. It offers comprehensive coverage for everything Original Medicare doesn’t cover as long as the charge is approved.
There are No Co Pays, No Deductibles and No Out of Pocket Costs with Plan F. That means if your Medicare Part A or Part B pay a penny on any doctor or hospital charges, this policy will cover the gap. Period.
The two gaps that are not covered are At Home Recovery and Preventative Care. These expenses are not covered by Medicare at all.
