Can Medicare Supplement increase member premiums?
Yes. Medicare Supplement policy premiums can increase each year on the renewal date of the plan, on the birthday of the member, or if the member moves into a new rating area. Otherwise, premiums can only be raised if they are also raised for all similar policies in the state. Medicare Supplement chooses not to increase premiums on birthdays.
Is Medicare Supplement Open Enrollment the same as Medicare?
No. To learn more about Medicare Supplement enrollment periods, review the Eligibility and Enrollment section.
Can a member get all Medicare Part B expenses covered by selecting the Part B Deductible Rider and the Part B Copay/Coinsurance Rider?
No. A member can only elect one Part B optional rider. This is mandated by the State of Wisconsin. However, note that the Part B Deductible Rider is only available for purchase by individuals who were eligible for Medicare before 1/1/2020.
How do I get an Outline of Coverage?

Does Medicare Supplement offer Part D prescription coverage?
