If you require a higher level of health care coverage or need a hand paying for expenses that aren't covered by Original Medicare, you have choices! Together, Direct Auto & Life Insurance in Gastonia and Medicare.org are helping North Carolina Medicare beneficiaries explore plans and enroll in the right health insurance plan for their medical needs.
The federal Medicare health insurance program, including Part A and Part B, helps cover many expenses, but there are gaps in the coverage you may want to fill. Unless you have supplemental coverage, you will have to pay out of pocket for certain services like vision care, copayments, coinsurance, dental, deductibles, and prescription drug coverage.
If you're just now aging into North Carolina Medicare or are reaching eligibility due to a disability, you have choices when it comes to receiving health benefits. For example, you can choose to receive your benefits from either Original Medicare or through 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 North Carolina 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 North Carolina. Medicare is generally 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.
