If you want additional health care coverage or need a hand paying for expenses that aren't covered by Original Medicare, you have options! Together, Direct Auto & Life Insurance in Florence and Medicare.org are helping South Carolina Medicare beneficiaries get the right health insurance plan for their needs.

While the federal Medicare health insurance program (including Part A and B) takes care of many expenses, there are coverage gaps you may want to fill in. That means that unless you have supplemental coverage, you'll have to use your own money for health services like prescription drug coverage, coinsurance, copayments, deductibles, dental, and vision care.

If you are approaching South Carolina Medicare eligibility or are coming close to being eligible due to disability, you have choices when it comes to how you receive your benefits. For instance, 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 South Carolina health insurance selections during the Annual Enrollment Period (October 15th - December 7th).

Can Direct Auto & Life and Medicare.org help you? As long as you're eligible for South Carolina Medicare insurance, we can! 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.

Everybody has different medical and healthcare needs. Take a step towards understanding yours! Explore health insurance plans online at Medicare.org. You'll see side-by-side comparisons for Medicare Prescription Drug Plans (Part D), Medicare Supplement Plans (Medigap), and Medicare Advantage Plans (Part C). Then call 844-961-9453, TTY 711 to speak with a licensed sales agent who can help you understand and enroll in South Carolina Medicare coverage that fits your needs. Enjoy more peace of mind when you have the right Medicare insurance!
