Florida Medicare Insurance

  • Medicare Supplements and Medigap Plans – Medicare coverage in Florida is the same as it is in most of the US. Finding the right plan amongst all the options you are presented with can be challenging to say the least. There are several Florida Medigap plans, Medicare Advantage Plans, and Medicare Supplement plans available in Florida. Which one is best really depends on you.
  • Medicare Advantage Health Plans – Medicare Part C / Medicare Advantage plans are offered by private insurance companies that are contracted by the government (CMS) to provide subscribers with their Part A, Part B benefits, plus a variety of benefits. The catch is you have to go to network doctors, there is no problem going out of network…but it’s going to cost you. The different Part C plans have a bunch of added benefits like gym memberships, free transportation, meals on wheels, and discount programs.
  • Medicare and Medicaid – Medicare dual eligibles – are Medicare recipients who are also eligible for either a Medicare Savings Program or Medicaid. There are also state based programs that will help you pay for prescription drugs, food, healthcare, and more. Call us, we can help you find out if you are eligible. Here is a .pdf from CMS with more details on Dual Eligibles.
  • CMS – Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services is a Federal agency and one of the things they are responsible for is overseeing and administering everything Medicare. Medicare’s budget is is about $460 billion dollars and it serves about 46 million people. There are really only 2 ways to go with this…either you add a medicare Supplement plan to your Original Medicare Part’s A and B coverage (add a Part D prescription Drug plan, if you want), OR enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan. Of course you could also just forego the supplemental coverage altogether and pay the difference yourself. There are limitations to Medicare’s coverage, so make sure you are aware of what they are before you decide not to get a supplemental insurance policy.

The trick to picking the best life insurance policy is is to clearly define what you need to cover and how much you will need. For example you may just be interested in protecting your mortgage ins which case a term policy or a mortgage protection policy would be ideal.

Most life insurance in Florida will fall into one of these main categories:

  • Term Insurance
  • Whole Life

  • Variable Life

Life insurance policies can be used for a variety of different things. Individuals can use it for charitable giving, mortgage protection, income replacement, taxes, education, repay debt, and more.
