In brief: Medigap plan

A good idea to get secondary coverage, as medicare only pays 80 % of doctors bills after a deductible per year. Medicare a pays hospital bills and post acute care after a deductible.
Medicare b pays office visits, 80 %, after a deductible. Most plans have enrollment periods . Look around to see whcich one suits your needs.
