Medicare Supplement Plan B offers additional coverage on top of Medicare Parts A and B, and includes more
services than Plan A. This type of plan is ideal for people who might require more coverage for hospitalization.
Medigap offers 10 standardized plans available in most states, each covering different out-of-pocket expenses. Other states, such as Massachusetts, Wisconsin, and Minnesota, have their own standardized plans.
