Choices are a good thing when it comes to Medicare supplements, especially during a recession when money is tight. Currently, there are several parts to Medicare – Part A for a stay in the hospital, but it does not cover services; and Part B, which covers services. Those two parts are considered the staples of Medicare. On top of that, there are further options of Part D (drug coverage) and Plans A through L to back-fill any gaps in a person’s health coverage. Consider that to be the icing on the cake for the main two parts. For the best coverage in a mix and match combination, talk to your local health insurance agent who will set you up with a tailor-made health insurance plan.
