Medicare Supplement Plan A Rates
Medicare Supplemental plan rates vary. Age, health, and region determine rates. Your health is only a factor if you have to go through medical underwriting. If you recently turned 65 or enrolled in Medicare Part B, you do not have to undergo medical underwriting. This six-month period is the open enrollment period. During open enrollment, Medicare supplemental plans accept you without considering your health. If you smoke or have a chronic illness, this is the best period for you to get a plan.
