Frequently asked questions

What types of coverage are not Medicare Supplement plans?

As a Medicare beneficiary, you may also be enrolled in other types of coverage, either through the Medicare program or other sources, such as an employer. When you first sign up for Original Medicare, you’ll fill out a form called the Initial Enrollment Questionnaire and be asked whether you have other types of insurance. It’s important to include all other types of coverage you have in this questionnaire. Medicare uses this information when deciding who pays first when you receive health-care services.

Below is a list of other types of insurance you may have. Please note that these types of coverage are different from Medicare Supplement plans:

  • Medicare Advantage plans (like an HMO or PPO)
  • Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (Part D)
  • Medicaid
  • Employer- or union-sponsored group coverage
  • TRICARE
  • Veterans’ benefits
  • Long-term care insurance policies

If a Medicare Supplement plan includes a certain benefit, this benefit is covered 100% unless otherwise specified.

In general, all Medicare Supplement plans cover the following benefits:

  • Medicare Part A coinsurance and hospital costs (up to an additional 365 days after Medicare benefits are used)
  • Medicare Part B coinsurance or copayment*
  • Blood (first 3 pints)*
  • Part A hospice care coinsurance or copayment*

*Coverage may be partial for some plans.
