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 options! Together, Direct Auto & Life Insurance in Summerville and Medicare.org are helping South Carolina 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 prescription drug coverage, coinsurance, copayments, deductibles, dental, and vision care.
If you're just aging into Medicare in South Carolina or are nearing eligibility because of a disability, you have options when it comes to how you receive your benefits. For instance, you can elect to receive your benefits through a Medicare Advantage Plan or Original Medicare. If you have already enrolled in Original Medicare, Part A and/or B, you might still be able to make changes to your SC health insurance coverage during the Annual Enrollment Period (October 15th - December 7th).
Wondering if Medicare.org and Direct Auto & Life can help you? We can, as long as you're eligible for Medicare insurance in South 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.
