California Medigap Insurance
California Medigap Insurance is supplemental insurance that fills in the gaps of Original Medicare. Like most states California follows the standardized Medicare Supplement Plans that were set into place in 1992 and the re-organized in 2010 under the Medicare Modernization Act.
The most popular California Medigap Plan is the Plan F. The reason this plan is so popular is because it covers all the deductibles, coinsurance and co-pays that Medicare leaves for you to pay. All you have to do is pay the premium and everything is taken care of as long as it is medically necessary (cosmetic surgeries not covered).
