Medicare supplement insurance is a specific type of health insurance coverage available to people who have Medicare Parts A & B. This supplemental insurance is a group or individual policy sold by a private insurance company with coverage specifically designed to pay the major benefit gaps in Medicare. All Medicare supplement insurance policies coordinate benefits with Medicare. Some policies will pay benefits for excess charges, and medical service outside the United States, even though these types of services are not covered under Medicare.
