Who needs Medicare Supplement Insurance?

Any­one who is eli­gi­ble for Medicare and is enrolled in Part A and Part B may con­sid­er sup­ple­ment insur­ance. Even if you are in good health and believe that stan­dard Medicare will pro­vide the cov­er­age you need, it may be a good idea to pur­chase sup­ple­men­tal insur­ance. If your health sta­tus changes, your abil­i­ty to enroll for sup­ple­men­tal insur­ance may be com­pro­mised.
