Although Medicare pays for many health care services and supplies, it doesn’t pay for all of them. A Medicare Supplement Plan will help pay for those costs which could include deductibles, coinsurance and copayments when visiting your doctor. An Anthem Medicare Supplemental Plan is also a good idea if you prefer to keep your own doctor and hospital and choose your own specialist and other health care provider.
Anthem’s Medicare Supplement plans are available in five standardized plan designs: A, B, F, I, J, L and SmartChoice (High Deductible F). All plans provide government-prescribed Basic Benefits.
