Medicare Supplement Plans in Indiana
Indiana Medicare Supplement plans help cover Medicare copayments, deductibles, and coinsurance. Customers with Medigap coverage have limited out of pocket costs. Since you are paying a premium (monthly or quarterly) you will not have expensive hospital visits or pay high out of pocket costs if you have a catastrophic claim/illness.

Indiana Medigap for the Disabled Under 65
Indiana State Laws do not work in favor of beneficiaries under 65 on Medicare. There is not one insurance company that offers Medicare Supplements to beneficiaries under 65. Medicare beneficiaries under 65 in the state of Indiana will benefit from Medicare Advantage coverage.
There are MA plans for people with specific chronic conditions such as heart and diabetes, or low-income; these MA plans are called Special Needs Plans (SNP). If there is an SNP available in your zip code, then a Special Enrollment Period to apply for this policy exists.
MA policies usually have lower premium and some ever have $0 premiums. Beneficiaries over 65 that cannot afford a Medigap should select some coverage instead of no coverage.
Medicare Advantage Plans Indiana
While this plan is typically cheaper than a Medicare Supplement Plan, MA policies come with limitations. Limitations include coverage limitations, in-network providers and cancellation restrictions.
Sometimes MA policies will cost more than a Medicare supplement. Let’s say John Smith enrolls in MA coverage and goes to the hospital for 6-days because of a minor stroke.
Well, the ambulance would be a $265 copayment. Then, the inpatient hospital stay is $295 DAILY for days 1-6. Although, there’s a Maximum Out of Pocket (MOOP) benefit protecting MA policyholders from high spending.
The MOOP is usually between $3,500 and $10,000 on most policies. So, once the beneficiary has spent the MOOP amount, the plan will pay 100% of covered benefits.
