If you are nearing Medicare eligibility or are currently enrolled in Original Medicare, you may have questions and concerns about the out-of-pocket expenses that Medicare Part A and Part B do not cover. These expenses, including copayments and deductibles, can add up over time, and there is no cap on these costs under Original Medicare.

In many cases, a Medicare Supplement plan can provide more control over health-care costs and offer predictability and peace of mind. Anthem is one of the private insurance companies that offers Medicare Supplement plans, this guide explains some of the different plans and benefits available to Medicare beneficiaries.

Overview of Anthem Medicare Supplement plans

In all but three states (Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Wisconsin), Medicare Supplement plans are standardized by law and organized into 10 different policy types labeled letter A through N. Each of these plans helps offset some of the costs that Original Medicare doesn’t cover, such as:

  • Coinsurance (the percentage you pay as your portion of Medicare-approved expenses)
  • Copayments (typically a flat amount you pay as your share of Medicare-approved costs)
  • Part B excess charges for doctors who do not accept Medicare’s approved amount as full payment for covered services
  • Deductibles
  • Emergency health care during foreign travel, up to plan limits

As a Medicare beneficiary, you may have several Anthem Medicare Supplement plans available to you. Some of those Medigap plans are described in detail below.
