Medicare Supplement Insurance pricing methods
Medigap pricing methods are important because they dictate how your premiums may increase in future years. There are three different pricing methods:
- Attained-age rated: The premium increases as you age.
- Issue-age rated: The premium is based on your age when you buy and it may increase due to inflation and other factors, but not due to your age.
- Community rated: The same premium is charged to all Medigap policyholders.
Under-65 enrollment rules
Although Medicare Supplement insurance is primarily for senior citizens, it also covers disabled people and those with end-stage renal disease (ESRD).
Medigap insurers in North Carolina are allowed to charge under-65 policyholders different premiums from their senior policyholders. However, insurers must charge the same premium to all non-seniors during the open enrollment period.
