Posted by www.psmbrokerage.com Admin on Thu, Apr 30, 2015 @ 10:17 AM

blog pic Recent research indicates Medigap continues to be particularly important to low and moderate-income beneficiaries, especially those living in rural areas. According to the National Association of Insurance Carriers:



  • Nationwide, 48 percent of all non-institutionalized Medicare beneficiaries without any other insurance coverage (M/A, VA, Medicaid, or employer-sponsored insurance) had Medigap policies in 2012;
  • 58 percent of Medigap policyholders are women;
  • Medigap serves an older population: 47 percent are 75-years or older compared to only 38 percent for all Medicare beneficiaries.
