Want to customize a Medicare plan to fit your needs?

Supplemental or “Medigap” coverage may be right for you. Supplemental Medicare insurance is an alternative to Medicare Advantage plans that allows you to create a specific coverage plan for your health care.


These plans help “fill the gap” by partially or fully covering expenses not covered by original Medicare. Supplemental plans are only available to purchase if you are enrolled in original Medicare. You cannot purchase Medicare supplemental insurance if you have a Medicare Advantage plan.


Costs vary with each supplemental product, so understanding each portion of your supplemental plan is important. Nearly all Scripps physicians accept a form of supplemental insurance coverage. Contact your Medicare insurance agent to learn more.

Are you eligible for both Medicare and Medi-Cal?

If you are covered by a combination of both Medicare and Medi-Cal (known as a "dual eligible"), you may automatically be enrolled by the State of California into an approved Medi-Cal HMO plan. If this plan does not include Scripps doctors, you may opt-out of that plan and join a new plan at any time.
