Medicare Supplemental Plans help cover some or all medical expenses not paid by Medicare parts A & B.

Medicare Prescription Drug Plans are also known as Medicare Part D. Medicare Part D is a government program that helps cover the cost of most prescription drugs and is available to those eligible for Medicare. Original Medicare Parts A and B does not include prescription drug coverage.
Final Expense Plans are different from long term insurance, hospital indemnity plans, or annuities, final expense plans are designed to cover the costs of a funeral and memorial service.

It is not medical insurance or any other type of Medicare health insurance but can often be confused with them.
