How Does Georgia Farm Bureau's Medicare Supplement Plan Work?
You can see the doctor you choose.
You’re not restricted to use a network of health care providers. If they accept Medicare patients, they accept Medicare Supplement insurance. So you can go directly to the physician and specialist you choose – no referrals or pre-approvals required. Plus, if you move, your coverage goes with you.
Your coverage starts now.
There’s no waiting period for preexisting conditions, and benefits are paid from the time your policy is in force.
Pay less out of your pocket.
Your Medicare Supplement and Medicare Parts A and B work together to minimize your share of health care costs. With this coverage, even unexpected medical events aren’t likely to impact your financial health.
Your policy is renewable – guaranteed
Your Medicare Supplement insurance policy renews as long as you pay your premiums on time and make no material misrepresentations.
