Seniors and medicare recipients in New Jersey will find a large and diverse group of health insurance companies offering Medicare Supplement and Medigap policies to retirees residing in the state. Please note that the current rates are for 2012, as the 2013 medigap rates have not yet been released. Expect these rates to be updated here soon — we’ll post them when CMS releases them to the public sometime this fall.
