If you’re enrolled in Original Medicare and would like to add a Medicare Supplement insurance plan, there are a few ways to do it. You can either:
– Call a company that offers the plan directly (They can only offer you their plans and rates)
– Enroll through an independent insurance agent/broker (The most preferred option to obtain competitive quotes)
– Go online and request a Medicare Plan Quote
If you choose to enroll online, Integrity Now Insurance Brokers is one of the options you have. Integrity Now Insurance Brokers is an independent private insurance agency that has a team of licensed insurance agents to help enroll you into a secondary insurance plan.
The costs associated with secondary insurance for Medicare vary depending on the company you go through, the secondary plan selected, current age, gender, smoker or non-smoker, current health conditions, and your local area.
The average range for a 65-year-old buying a Medigap Plan G is between $95 and $150 per month.
Additionally, dental, hearing, and vision products offered by separate companies than Medicare may have associated fees.
For example, United Healthcare may offer dental and vision products through different companies than their Medicare supplement product itself.
Each company is a separate entity and is not responsible for another’s financial or contractual obligations. Therefore, if something happens with your dental or vision coverage, you will need to contact that specific company in order to resolve the issue.
If you would like to cancel your secondary insurance policy, go to the Medicare website. You will be able to find information on how to do this and more. There are a few things that you should keep in mind before canceling your secondary Medicare insurance policy:

If you are enrolled in Medicare and have other insurance, it is important to know how your coverage works.
If you have a primary plan (usually an employer-sponsored health care plan), then Medicare is secondary. This means you will only be eligible for the Medicare benefits that are not covered by your primary insurance plans, such as prescription drugs or dental care.
Once you leave an employer plan that is primary to Medicare, it is critical to notify Medicare letting them know they are now primary. This will ensure bills are paid when submitted by your doctors.
There are many differences between Medicare Supplement and Medicare Advantage Plans. The most important one is that a Medicare Supplement plan works together with your Original Medicare, while a Medicare Advantage Plan replaces Original Medicare.
Another difference is that if you have a Medigap policy, it will follow you wherever you go in the country with zero issues of utilizing any doctor or medical facility that accepts Medicare.
But if you switch from a Medicare Advantage Plan, the Advantage plan will not cover any services provided outside of your plan’s network of doctors and facilities.
For older adults who travel on vacation or visit family members in another state, this is where staying on Original Medicare with a Medigap Plan G comes in handy.
For healthy Medicare beneficiaries, their health care costs may be lower with a Medicare Advantage Plan because of lower or no monthly premiums, however, keep in mind as you become more of a user of your Advantage plan your cost could be significantly higher.
Many people on Medicare find that they need supplemental insurance in order to have full coverage. This is because Medicare does not cover everything, and there are many costs associated with health care that may not be covered by the government program.
Yes, Medicare supplements are considered secondary insurance. This means that if you have other insurance coverage–such as through your employer or a private insurer–the supplement will pay after those policies have been used up.
It’s important to keep in mind that not all medical expenses are covered by Medicare, so having a supplement can be very helpful in ensuring that you have the best possible coverage.
