According to a Kaiser Family Foundation page, “Medigap Reform: setting the Context for Understanding Recent Proposals,” the vast majority of Medicare beneficiaries enhance their Medicare benefits with some other kind of coverage. Even though Part A and Part B offer very broad coverage, it is no secret that there are gaps because of deductibles, copays, coinsurance, and things that Medicare does not pay for at all. People who are interested in buying Medicare insurance from private companies to enhance their own benefits might be interested in learning what other beneficiaries do to make the most of their health benefits.
