If you require a higher level of health care coverage or need help paying some of the costs that Original Medicare doesn’t cover, you have choices! In Tallahassee, Direct Auto & Life Insurance and Medicare.org are helping Florida Medicare beneficiaries research, compare plans, buy, and enroll in the right health insurance plan for their needs.
Even though the federal Medicare health insurance program, which consists of Part A and B, helps pay for a variety of medical costs, there can still be gaps in coverage. That means that unless you have supplemental coverage, you'll have to use your own money for health services like dental, vision care, prescription drug coverage, copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles.
If you're just aging into Medicare in Florida or are coming close to being eligible due to disability, you have choices when it comes to how you receive your benefits. For example, you can decide to receive benefits from Original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage Plan. And if you've already enrolled in Original Medicare (Part A and/or B), you could still be eligible to update your Florida health insurance selections during the Annual Enrollment Period (October 15th - December 7th).
Not sure if Medicare.org and Direct Auto & Life can assist you? We can, as long as you're eligible for Medicare insurance in Florida. Medicare is usually available to people who are 65 or older and meet citizenship and residency requirements; are under 65 with certain disabilities; or are of any age with End-Stage Renal Disease.
Everyone's healthcare needs are different. Take the first step in understanding yours and compare health insurance plans online at Medicare.org. You'll have access to side-by-side comparisons for Medicare Supplement Plans (Medigap), Medicare Advantage Plans (Part C), and Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (Part D). Then call 844-961-9453, TTY 711 to speak with a licensed sales agent who can help you understand and enroll in Florida Medicare coverage that fits your needs. Live well with Medicare insurance that's right for you.
