What does LegacySM Medigap cover?
Who is this for?
If you're thinking about a Legacy Medigap plan, this explains the benefits and services it offers.
Original Medicare provides you hospital and medical coverage. But it doesn't cover all health care costs and has deductibles and coinsurance.
Depending on the Legacy plan you choose, it may cover all or part of your Medicare deductibles and coinsurances.
Please be aware that changes are coming to Legacy Medigap plans. Since change can be hard, we want to help you through this transition.
If you're considering a Legacy Medigap plan
If you want to get a Legacy Medigap Plan A or C, with coverage that starts on or before Dec. 15th, we need to get your application by Nov. 14th. For plans with coverage starting on or after Jan. 1, 2017, you can only get Plan C if you’ll no longer be insured because you’ve become eligible for Medicare or you’ve lost your coverage under a group policy after becoming eligible for Medicare. If you’re under age 65, you can only get Plan A if you’ll no longer be insured because you’ve become eligible for Medicare or you’ve lost your coverage under a group policy after becoming eligible for Medicare. You’ll need to meet these requirements and apply for these plans.
