I have no experience with these companies, but have Medicare and a supplementary plan. My supplementary plan covers anything that Medicare covers, and pays the part not covered when Medicare does not pay the full amount. A policy of this type would pay the balance of IvIg treatments if Medicare paid part of it. I signed up for the maximum supplemental plan with Blue Shield of California, because I had Blue Shield before going on Medicare and they took good care of me.

Best to study the plan descriptions and ask questions of the plans’ representatives. You might also look into alternatives. You should be able to pick any supplemental plan if you are retired and paying for it yourself. If you have a group which is paying for it, then I suppose you must take what they offer.
