Covering Medicare's Gaps

If you are on Disability or Social Security, you are also more than likely on Medicare. While Medicare covers a lot of processes and some drugs, whichever ones you desperately need are certain not to be covered - at least not if your luck is anything like mine. If you do not already have secondary insurance coverage, you need a Medicare supplement insurance plan.

Medigap is one of the more well-known and respected of these programs. While there are numerous programs similar to it, Medigap is where I would start, were I looking for secondary coverage. If you have a social worker, ask him/her about programs in your area or call Medicare directly to get more information on your coverage.
