Searching for Medicare Supplement plans in Rhode Island? Let PlanPrescriber be your resource for Rhode Island Medicare Supplement information and plan comparisons.
Rhode Island residents, like residents of every state, who are enrolled in Medicare Part A and Part B may have the option to enroll in a Medicare Supplement (Medigap or MedSupp) plan. Medigap plans may help cover the health-care out-of-pocket costs that Original Medicare does not cover, including deductibles, copayments, coinsurance. In most states, there are ten standardized Medigap policy options, each labeled with a letter with all plans of the same letter offering the same benefits.
Rhode Island is one of the states that offer the 10 standardized Medicare Supplement plans with names designated by letter, although not every plan may be available in all parts of the state. Any insurance company who sells Medicare Supplement plans is required to offer Medicare Supplement Plan A. In order to sell any additional Medigap plans, insurance companies must also offer either Medicare Supplement Plan F or Plan C.

Once you’re enrolled in one of these standardized Medicare Supplement plans, your coverage is guaranteed renewable for life, meaning a policy cannot be canceled due to age or health. The only ways enrollment in a Medicare Supplement plan can be canceled is if you fail to pay monthly premiums, misrepresented yourself on your application, or committed fraud, or your Medigap insurance company became bankrupt or insolvent.
Standard Medigap policy benefits in Rhode Island do not vary between plans for the same letter name (although companies may offer other innovative benefits). However, the costs for each plan may vary depending on which insurance company is offering the plan. Medicare beneficiaries in Rhode Island might first want to see what Medigap policies are available in their state, decide which plan type may suit their health needs, and then customize their search to find a Medicare Supplement insurance plan charging costs suited for their budget.
