Medicare supplement insurance is supposed to help you fill in the gaps where your basic Medicare coverage has dropped the ball and not paid for coverage. To do this your supplement insurance plan or company needs to be notified when you decide to have them pick up the rest of the tab. Many people are unaware of how to complete this simple process and for those that are unsure this article could help clear it up for you.
The most important thing that you can do to make sure that your Medicare supplement insurance is ready to step up is to call the Medicare supplement insurance company. Ask for the point of contact for the secondary insurance coverage and take down all of their information. Once you speak to this individual you need to ask them what you should do to make sure they are ready to step up and help at any time with your situation.
If there is no point of contact with the supplement insurance group you need to ask someone what the process is for submitting a secondary claim. Get all of the information and make sure that you follow all of the steps to remedy your situation as soon as possible. Getting your supplemental insurance ready to step up and help pay the bills will be a big relief to your mental and emotional health. Call us at 1-800-247-9889 and we can discuss your options.
