Paulecker: <<Medicare supplemental insurance (Pt B) gives you more choices at somewhat higher costs.>>

Part B is the part which covers doctors, etc. and which premium is deducted from the SS check. The Medicare Supplement Insurance is commonly known as "Medigap", and is totally separate from Medicare, and is paid personally, not through the SS deduction.
