Medicare supplemental insurance, also referred to as a "medigap policy", is private health insurance for those enrolled in Medicare Part A and B. Medicare pays none of the costs for a medigap policy, which helps pay for costs that Medicare doesn't cover such as copays, co-insurance, and deductibles. It also does not cover Medicare parts C and D.
