Health New England Medicare Supplement

Do you see doctors outside of the area? Do you travel often? Do you live part of year outside of Massachusetts? Do you have Original Medicare and want to supplement the gaps in coverage?

If you answered “yes” to any or all of these questions, then one of our Medicare Supplement plans may be right for you.

With a Health New England Medicare Supplement plan:
  • You can keep your Original Medicare Part A and Part B coverage and have many of your cost-sharing amounts paid for. Medicare Supplement helps pay for deductibles, coinsurance and copayments on Medicare-covered services.
  • You don’t need referrals to see specialists, nor is a primary care provider (PCP) required.
  • You don’t need prior authorizations for services if they are covered by Medicare.
  • You can see a doctor anywhere in the United States and U.S. territories as long as the provider, doctor or hospital accepts Original Medicare. 
  • You get worldwide emergency coverage.
  • You can join a separate stand-alone Part D prescription drug plan of your choice.

Plus, our Medicare Supplement 1 plan offers additional benefits not covered by Original Medicare. These include a $150 reimbursement for fitness or Weight Watchers ® per calendar year.  

When to Join

If you are eligible for a Medicare Supplement plan, you can enroll at any time! Massachusetts Medicare Supplement plans have a continuous open enrollment. This means that you can purchase, upgrade or downgrade your Medicare Supplement plan at any time during the calendar year. Any changes made will be effective on the first of the following month.

To be eligible for a Health New England Medicare Supplement plan, you must live within the state of Massachusetts, be entitled to Medicare Part A (hospital insurance), be enrolled in Medicare Part B (medical insurance) and continue to pay your Medicare Part B premiums.

The best time to enroll in a Medicare Supplement plan is during your Medicare Open Enrollment Period. This six-month period begins on the first day of the month in which you turn 65 and have enrolled in Medicare Part B.
