Get a Free Medicare Review

Many people ask the question, “since Medicare only covers 80%, how do I pay the other 20%?” The answer to that question is what The REAL Insurance Lady helps you answer.  If you or a loved one has Medicare, call the office today for a FREE Medicare review.  The REAL Insurance Lady will review your current plan to determine if there is something that may be more beneficial to you.


Typically, Medicare recipients can only make changes during the Annual Election Period which begins October 15th.  There are exceptions.  If you would like to find out if you can make a change to your existing plan, call our office.  If you feel that you cannot afford the costs of Medicare and/or your medications, The REAL Insurance Lady will be happy to help you find a plan and determine your eligibility for assistance with the costs of your medications as well as the costs of Medicare Part B Premium.

Medicare Advantage Plans

Medicare Advantage Plans, sometimes called “Part C” or “MA Plans,” are offered by private companies approved by Medicare. If you join a Medicare Advantage Plan, you still have Medicare. You’ll get your Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) coverage from the Medicare Advantage Plan and not Original Medicare.  Medicare Advantage Plans may offer extra coverage, like visionhearingdentalgym membership and/or health and wellness programs. Most include Medicare prescription drug coverage (Part D).

What's Medigap?

A Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) policy can help pay some of the health care costs that Original Medicare doesn’t cover, like copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles.

Some Medigap policies also offer coverage for services that Original Medicare doesn’t cover, like medical care when you travel outside the U.S. If you have Original Medicare and you buy a Medigap policy, Medicare will pay its share of the Medicare-approved amount for covered health care costs. Then your Medigap policy pays its share.

A Medigap policy is different from a Medicare Advantage Plan. Those plans are ways to get Medicare benefits, while a Medigap policy only supplements your Original Medicare benefits.

When Can I Buy MediGap?

The best time to buy a Medigap policy is during your 6-month Medigap open enrollment period, because you can buy any Medigap policy sold in your state, even if you have health problems. This period automatically starts the month you’re 65 and enrolled in Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance). After this enrollment period, you may not be able to buy a Medigap policy. If you’re able to buy one, it may cost more.  If you apply for Medigap coverage after your open enrollment period, there’s no guarantee that an insurance company will sell you a Medigap policy if you don’t meet the medical underwriting requirements. If you apply during your Medigap open enrollment period, you can buy any Medigap policy the company sells, even if you have health problems, for the same price as people with good health.
