Medicare Supplements are policies sold by private insurance companies. Medicare supplements are designed to help pay many of the health care cost not covered by Original Medicare.
Medicare Supplement plans are standardized. Meaning the basic plan design with a Letter Designation such as Plan F or High Deductible Plan F, Plan G, Plan L or Plan N, has a standard set of benefits for that particular Letter used to describe what basic standard features are in the plan. Some companies will offer Value Added Benefits above and beyond the Supplemental Benefit.
Some companies will not have a plan which has added Value Added Benefits above and beyond the Supplement Benefit. Some companies will indeed have Value Added Benefits, so as a consumer you will want to ask your agent about things which you as a consumer are interested in to determine a plan which might be suitable for you needs.
