Generally, Medicare supplement plans cover at least part of your share of any costs left over after your original Medicare coverage has been used for medical services. Original Medicare is made up of parts A and B together.

There are several choices when it comes to Medicare supplement plans, and each insurer may offer different options.

For the 2021 plan year, all Medicare supplement plans from ConnectiCare cover:

  • Medicare Part A hospital coinsurance
  • all or some of Part A hospice coinsurance or copayments
  • all or a portion of Medicare Part B coinsurance and copayments

Medicare supplement plans, or Medigap plans, are optional products offered to people with original Medicare (parts A and B) to help pay for certain out-of-pocket costs.

These plans can be used to pay copayments or other items not covered by standard Part A and Part B coverage.
