A Medigap policy is a health insurance policy sold

by private insurance companies to fill "gaps" in

Original Medicare Plan coverage. Medigap policies

must follow federal and state Laws. These laws

protect you. The front of the Medigap policy must

clearly identify it as "Medicare Supplement

Insurance."Each policy has a different set of benefits. Two

of the standardized policies may have a high

deductible option. In addition, any standardized

policy may be sold as a "Medicare SELECT" policy.

Medicare SELECT policies usually cost less because

you must use specific hospitals and, in some cases, specific doctors to get full insurance benefits from the policy. In an emergency, you may use any doctor or hospital.
