A Medicare "Select" policy is a Medicare Supplement or Medigap policy, that is sold in many states including
Texas. If you choose a "Select" Plan, the coverage would be identical to the standard plan of the same letter
designation (C "Select" would have the same coverage as a standard "C Plan"), except that you would be
required to use a hospital within their network, for Non-Emergency situations. If you do not use a network
hospital in a non-emergency situation, you will not be covered by the supplement. You would have to pay the
charges that Medicare does not. Medicare will pay it's share of the approved charges, no matter what hospital
In an emergency, you can still go to any hospital and receive full coverage. Of course, these "Select" plans do
have a lower premium than the "standard" plans.
