Indiana Medicare Supplemental insurance plans are great way to cover those gaps that go unpaid for by Traditional Medicare. A lot of recipients of Medicare don’t realize when they become eligible for coverage they’re still responsible for 20% of their medical costs, as well as other out of pocket expenses such as co-pays, coinsurance and deductibles. This is where supplement plans come into play, they were created specifically to cover the medical costs not covered by Traditional Medicare.
