An overwhelming majority of Medigap members - 94 percent - are satisfied with their coverage, according to a recent survey from America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP). Indeed, 91 percent would recommend similar coverage for a friend or relative, and 80 percent of the 500 Medigap beneficiaries surveyed said their policies are an “excellent” or “good” value for the money, a figure that’s constant in recent years (79 percent in 2012; 77 percent in 2009).
Survey respondents cited several different benefits, including limits on out-of-pocket costs, simplicity of medical bills and related paperwork and the ability to budget for unexpected medical costs when asked what they like most about Medigap. And 30 percent said they value being able to see the physicians of their choice, while 29 percent said they value Medigap’s hospital and physician coverage.
