n.
Private health insurance designed to supplement the coverage provided under governmental programs such as Medicare.

Medigap

[med′igap]
a health insurance policy sold by a private insurance company to fill gaps in coverage of a person's original Medicare plan.

Medigap

A generic term for employer-sponsored, individually purchased health insurance that supplements Medicare reimbursement for medical services. As Medicare pays physicians for services according to its own fee schedule, regardless of what the physician charges, a patient may be required to pay the physician the difference between Medicare’s reimbursable charge and the physician’s fee; Medigap is meant to fill this gap in reimbursement so that the Medicare beneficiary is not liable for the difference.
