If you desire more health coverage or need a hand paying for expenses that aren't covered by Original Medicare, you have options! Together, Direct Auto & Life Insurance in North Charleston and Medicare.org are helping South Carolina Medicare beneficiaries get 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 prescription drug coverage, coinsurance, copayments, deductibles, dental, and vision care.
If you are approaching South Carolina Medicare eligibility or are nearing eligibility because of a disability, you have options when it comes to receiving health benefits. For example, you can elect to receive your benefits through a Medicare Advantage Plan or Original Medicare. If you're already enrolled in Original Medicare, Part A and/or Part B, you may be eligible to make changes to your South Carolina health insurance coverage 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 South Carolina. Medicare is typically available to those 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.
