What does gold mean to you?
For many people, “gold” conjures up a picture of the Olympic Games. Every few years, hundreds of Olympians from around the world come together to compete for just a handful of gold medals. In many cases, these world-class athletes have been training for their entire lives— and all just to win a little disc of gold.
For others, gold may bring up thoughts of precious jewelry—of the sparkling bracelets, earrings, and necklaces that make every outfit pop. Perhaps you hear gold and think “Arrr, Matey,” as pirates and buried treasure immediately come to mind.
Or maybe you think of gold bricks and coins, stacked up in vaults in places like Fort Knox? Did you know that, at one point, gold was essentially the basis for the US economy? Even today, lots of people put their savings into gold, and it’s often considered to be one of the safest investments you can make.
The point is? Gold can mean a lot of different things to a lot of different people. But think about all of the words we used up there: “precious,” “treasure,” and “invest.”
One thing is sure, then . . . Gold means value. Gold means the best. That’s why when you hear something called “the gold standard,” everyone tends to take notice! After all, who wouldn’t want the best of the best?
And that brings us to Medicare supplemental insurance, which most doctors, hospitals, and Medicare recipients consider to be the gold standard of coverage for those 65 and older!
What Is Medicare Supplemental Coverage?
Medicare supplemental insurance, also called Medigap, is private health insurance designed to “fill in the gaps” in coverage left by original Medicare. It can help Medicare beneficiaries pay many of the costs that Medicare may not cover on its own, such as copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles.
What Makes Medicare Supplemental Insurance the Gold Standard?
There are countless reasons why Medicare beneficiaries may want to look into adding a supplement to their insurance portfolio.
For example, as MarketWatch points out, many employers’ retiree plans aren’t enough, and “in some cases, retirees could get better coverage at a lower cost by going with original Medicare and a Medigap plan.”
Those savings are significant—and it’s important to remember that Medigap coverage adds value above and beyond what you’ll receive from original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage plan.
Even with an original Medicare policy, you may still find yourself on the hook for thousands of dollars in out-of-pocket medical costs every year. Your supplemental insurance can help cover those hefty expenses, letting you keep more of your money—and with it, keep a greater sense of security about the costs associated with your medical care, both the predictable and the unexpected.
As Good as Gold: the Value of Medicare Supplemental Insurance
Think about the many ways in which the savings, security, and consistency afforded by Medicare supplemental insurance coverage could help benefit you and your family.
With the “gold standard” for coverage in place, you may be able to:
- Keep your lifestyle intact
- Avoid becoming a financial burden on your family
- Protect your financial legacy from being exposed to medical costs
- Go out and truly enjoy your life goals in retirement
