Question What additional health insurance will I need when I turn 65 and go under Medicare?

Answer Medicare (parts A & B) provides extensive medical benefits. There are however, gaps in coverage. To help cover these gaps in coverage, there are standardized Medigap plans throughout the country. The plans go from Plan A (least coverage for lowest cost) to Plan J (most coverage for highest cost). Not all health insurers sell all 10 plans. In addition, enrollment in a Medicare HMO can help cover the gaps in Medicare.
