We suggest the hybrid model, Which is and advanced concept that will require a little bit of thought and effort on the customers part but could save thousands over the life of your benefits. This plan requires you to take a Medigap annuity and then purchase a Medicare supplement when as high deductible. The high deductible Medicare supplement plans are very inexpensive in monthly premium, and the difference between that in the Cadillac plans monthly payment you would put into a Medigap annuity allowing you to have funds to pay co-pays, coinsurance and the deducitibles as out of balance grows.

No need to give the insurance company more than they deserve, but it will take a little bit of management on your part. I've seen this medigap hybrid model Save customers thousands!
