Medicare Supplements:
Medicare is one of the most regulated items in our economy and when it comes to Original
Medicare Supplements, they must ALL be the same in terms of benefits as regulated by the
Federal Government.

The only difference is the premiums that carriers can charge for the supplements that they offer.

As long as your doctor accepts Medicare he or she will accept your Medicare Supplement.
