Medicare Supplement Plans in Delaware – 2017

Delaware Medicare Supplement Plans - Delaware Medigap Plans

Medicare Supplement Plans in Delaware, also known as Medigap Plans, fill the gaps in Part A and Part B of Original Medicare, such as deductibles, copayments / coinsurances, and excess charges. Without them your Medicare costs could be very high. Medicare Supplement Plans in Delaware are sold by private insurance companies, and like plans in most other US States, they are standardized. There are 10 Standardized Plans, designated by the letters “A” through “N”. Each of them has its own set of benefits, and these benefits are identical for all vendors. In other words, the benefits of Medicare Supplement Plan F from one vendor are the same as benefits from any other vendors. The difference is just a premium, and it may be significantly different from vendor to vendor. That is why knowledge of Medigap vendors and their premiums in your particular area may be quite important.

Medicare Supplement Plans in Delaware: Specific Medigap Regulations

Medigap premiums in Delaware are established using the following factors:

  • Age
  • Zip code (and sometimes a County within the zip code)
  • Gender
  • Whether or not you are a tobacco user.

Rates are normally lower in rural areas and higher in urban areas. Male rates are typically higher than female rates by 10-15%.

The Delaware law allows Medicare providers to charge more than what Medicare allows – the difference is known as Extra Charges. The Medicare Supplement Plans in Delaware that include Extra Charges (Medigap Plan F and Medigap Plan G) are more expensive than plans that do not include them (Medigap Plan C and Medigap Plan D).

The Federal Government has no requirements that would make Medigap carriers to sell Medicare policies to people under the age of 65 which is Medicare due to disability. Most Delaware Medicare Supplement vendors offer all Medigap plans for people age 40-64, but premiums are higher than premiums for people who are 65 years old.

Delaware does not have any additional special Guaranteed Issue windows, such as 30-day birthday period. A household discount is allowed in Delaware, and several Medicare Supplement vendors include it. The typical discount is 5 to 7 percent.
