If you have already done research about Medicare coverage, you know that Medicare will not pay for everything. From deductibles to coinsurance amounts to certain limitations, the amounts not paid by Medicare can be very expensive.
When it comes to financial protection for health care costs for seniors, TRH Health Plans are tried and true. And quite affordable. More than 55,000 Tennesseans 65 years and older have a TRH Medicare Supplement plan (otherwise known as a Medigap plan).
Only you know which Medicare Supplement plan will best suit your lifestyle and your budget.
That's why TRH offers eight federally approved Medicare Supplement plans. Every year the federal government makes changes in Medicare deductibles and coinsurance. We revise our coverage to meet Medicare's yearly changes.
No Provider Network
With a TRH Medicare Supplement, you can continue to use doctors, hospitals and other providers you’ve been using.
Choice of Eight Coverage Plans
TRH offers eight Medicare Supplement (Medigap) plans whose levels of benefits are set by the federal government. The government and TRH refer to these as plans A

- Medical Expenses – Medicare Part B coinsurance (20 percent of Medicare approved expenses)
- Blood – First three pints of blood each year
- Hospice – Part A coinsurance

Prescription Drug Coverage
If you haven’t looked into our prescription drug coverage already, click here
. It offers a $250 annual deductible and pays 80 percent of eligible prescription drug costs up to $6,000 a year. TRH Prescription Drug coverage is not Medicare Part D coverage.
Medicare does not allow supplement plans to include prescription drug coverage. Prescription drug coverage is available through Medicare’s Prescription Drug Plan (Part D). While TRH does not offer Medicare Part D plans, there are numerous plans available in Tennessee. The best Part D plan for you will depend upon your personal prescriptions. To help in making a decision on the best plan for you, below is a simple three-step process to follow.
- Visit Medicare Plan Finder on the Medicare website.
- Enter your personal prescription information and compare Part D plans that cover your prescriptions.
- Enroll in the Part D plan of your choice from Medicare’s website.
