Continuation of MediGap Coverage

By on | No Comments

Question: I am retired and on Medicare with a BC/BS Medigap policy which continues to be administered by my former employer. I pay about $100/month for this coverage. If my previous employer discontinues this insurance, will I have the same COBRA-HIPPA options for continuation of the MediGap coverate that apply in layoff situations to persons who are not yet eligible for Medicare?

Answer: No. HIPAA laws do not apply to Medicare Supplement insurance. You will have the option to continue your Medigap policy, by taking over payment of the entire premium.
