Medicare Gap Programs
RIPEA sponsors group health insurance plans for members covered by Medicare. The insurance plans are through Anthem Insurance company and operate the same way as other supplemental Medicare plans. One of the insurance plans is a Medicare Supplement Plan N basic plan, and the other is the Comprehensive Plan a mirror of Medicare Supplement Plan F. These are excellent insurance plans that cover you anywhere you travel in the United States. They have been negotiated by an experienced insurance consultant retained by RIPEA.
