When you turn age 65 you become eligible for Medicare. What you’ll soon find out is that Medicare does not cover you fully for healthcare costs. Medicare Supplements are designed to cover the gap caused by the things Medicare doesn’t pay for.
There are ten different Medicare supplement plans available and they all vary in price. Some give you better coverage and benefits than others. Plan F, which has been the most popular Medicare supplement plan, is going away in 2020, although you’ll be able to keep Plan F if you’re already in it. The cost will go up though.
