What is United American Medicare Supplement Plan B?
Medicare Supplement Plan B helps Michigan seniors fill the coverage gaps in Original Medicare, including some deductibles, co-payments and excess charges. The monthly rate (starting around $161.00* per month) on this United American Insurance Company insurance policy may differ, however the benefits do not.
United American's Plan B offers basic coverage for:
- Medicare Part A hospital and coinsurance costs up to an additional 365 days after Original Medicare benefits are exhausted
- Medicare Part A hospice care coinsurance or co-payments
- Medicare Part A deductible
- First three pints of blood used in a medical procedure
- Medicare Part B coinsurance or co-payments
United American's Medicare Plan B does not pay for these costs:
- Medicare Part B deductible
- Medicare Part B excess charges
- Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) care coinsurance
- Foreign travel emergency care
United American's Medigap Plan B helps you pay for your primary healthcare. Specifically, it pays for some of your co-payments and co-insurances from unexpected procedures and hospitalization. Plan B is ideal for Michigan seniors who want more than Medicare's basic coverage of inpatient costs. We compared United American with all other Medigap insurance carriers in Michigan and gave them 4.0 stars out of 5.

Depending on a variety of factors including location, gender, age, and health status, the premium you pay for United American Medicare Supplement Plan B will vary.

Despite the differences in rates and pricing methods, if you enroll in this plan the carrier must notify you in advance if it plans to increase its premiums.
