7 ‘Must Knows’ of Medicare Supplement Insurance

Original Medicare

Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) offer a lot of coverage including health care services and some supplies, but they don’t cover everything. Medicare Supplement Insurance, also known as Medigap insurance, helps cover some of the additional expenses that an original Medicare policy may not. This additional coverage does not cancel or alter your current Medicare policy. It picks up some of the expenses that your original policy may not. You must be enrolled in Medicare Part A or Part B in order to qualify for Medigap insurance since it supports your original plan. It is not meant to be a separate policy as it only pays certain expenses that “Standard” Medicare does not cover.

We will showcase and explain each aspect of Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap).

History Facts - Confucius

  1. Confucius was not, in fact, the philosopher's real name. His given name was Kong Qi, but he would also have been referred to as Zhngn the Zhong referencing the fact that he was the second son in the family.
  2. Many historians believe that Confucius was born on September 28, 551 BCE near the modern city of Qufu, China, which was at the time known as the Zou district. During this period, the Zou was controlled by the Zhou dynasty.
  3. The most well-known philosophies in Confucianism is the Golden Rule: "you shall not do unto others what you do not want others to do unto you." Confucius believed that instead of imposing rules through punishment, the government should rule by example instead.
  4. The First Emperor of the Qin Dynasty was not a fan of freedom of speech. During the construction of the Terracotta Army, he ordered the burning of all treaties and decrees he didn't like.
  5. Whether or not Confucianism counts as religion remains a big question up to this day. Over the years, Chinese governments have not been sure how to define it. When Christians were asked for their opinions, things got even more confusing.
  6. Confucian philosophies have made their way into Chinese culture in many of its finer aspects. The Imperial Examination is only one of the methods derived from the belief system.
