We offer Florida Medicare supplement insurance plans direct to our clients. Using our independent brokerage, you can compare rates, renewals and benefits from the best Medigap providers for free and with no hassles.
We represent all supplemental insurance companies, including: Aetna, Florida Blue (Anthem BBCS), Accendo, Capitol Life, Cigna, CSI, Humana, Gerber Life, Mutual of Omaha, National General, National Guardian, United American, United Healthcare AARP and many others.
If you are near age 65 and in your Medicare open enrollment window, losing group coverage, shopping for better rates, or eligible due to disability – we can assist. Currently, United Healthcare (AARP), Aetna, Anthem BCBS (Florida Blue) & Humana are offering some of the lowest rates in FL.
The ten modernized supplemental insurance plans to choose from are Plans A through N. Plan A offers only basic benefits while Plan F fills in all of the gaps not covered by Medicare. All others fall somewhere in between.
In Florida, Plans F, G, N and High Deductible Plans G & F are popular when coupled with prescription Part D drug coverage. Plan G and N usually offer the most value. It’s important to understand the subtle differences between the various Medigap plans in order to make the best decisions. We can help you through this process so you don’t overpay for insurance policy.
If you’re new to Medicare in 2020 and beyond, Plans F, C and HD F will not be available for purchase. Plan G, D, N and High Deductible Plan G will be your next best options. If you were eligible for Medicare before 2020, then all plans are still an option.
There are no Medicare supplements sold today that include Part D prescription drug coverage – only Medicare Advantage plans combine the two. Part D Drug policies are sold separately from private carriers on a stand-alone basis. We assist our clients with Part D coverage as well. We’re a one-stop shop for Medicare insurance – and we offer all plans direct. There are never any fees to use our services.
A handful of insurance companies offer High Deductible Plan G & F supplements. Before your benefits begin, you would need to reach a $2,370 deductible in 2021. In 2020, the deductible was $2,340. Typically this amount increases by $20-$40 per year. It rises with inflation so, Medicare never increases it arbitrarily.
You should know that Medicare pays its portion first. Your high deductible insurance might not kick-in right away, but that does interfere with any Medicare payments. The government always pays first and then your supplement policy is next.
Currently United American, Humana, Aetna and Mutual of Omaha offer some of the best rates on High Deductible Plans G & F in Florida. We’ll quote all of them for you direct. We also provide insight on rate increases and renewals.
Medicare supplement insurance plans in Florida tend to cost more than in most other states. There are several reasons for this, but demographics and healthcare utilization play a significant role. In some areas, Plan F will cost more than $200 per month. That’s why Plan G and Plan N are a good choice.
But for those who want the lowest premiums, we also help with Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug (MAPD) plans as well. There are several companies offering this insurance and many have $0 premiums. While MA plans have more out-of-pocket exposure and some network limitations, premiums are much more affordable. Additionally, most Advantage plans include Part D prescription drug coverage at no additional cost.
If you are not sure which type is best for you, you can learn more about Medicare benefits in FL by clicking on this guide here. We will also help you better understand your options over a comprehensive phone call. It’s important to know you have only a one year trial period if you choose to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan. This means after one year in an Advantage plan, medical underwriting will be required to enroll in a traditional Supplement (like Plans F, G, or N).
In other words, it’s oftentimes difficult to switch back and forth. It can also be difficult to switch from one supplement to another. There is only so much you can do during the yearly Open Enrollment window, so make sure you know the rules. We help provide that education to our clients.
Several factors will determine your monthly premiums, including: age, gender, resident zip code, the company, and selected plan. There are always new insurance companies entering the Medigap marketplace, so it’s wise to work with an independent agency like ours. This way you’ll be aware of better rates when they’re available.
If you are under age 65 and eligible for Medicare due to disability, your premiums will be higher than those age 65. Insurance companies are allowed to charge more for all Medicare supplements when an applicant is under age 65. Plan N as well as some Medicare Advantage plans can be a good choice for those on disability.
By law, all Florida Medicare insurance policies are “guaranteed renewable.” This means the insurance company cannot cancel your coverage for any reason – or single you out for a rate increase. Insurance companies can raise your rates each year, but it’s done on a class basis for everyone.
All Medigap policies sold in FL are Issue Age plans. Your rates will not increase as you grow older, but they will increase each year based on approved class increases that affect everyone. Some companies have larger increase than others. We can help you review the recent rate history of the best Medigap companies in your area.
You are shopping direct when using our licensed Medigap insurance brokerage in Florida. There are no additional fees for our services and you will not find lower Medigap prices anywhere else – either online, in person or by calling each company on your own.
We serve the entire state of FL including Ft. Myers, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Miami, Orlando, Tampa, Tallahassee and all places in between. We represent all well-known and highly-rated providers like: Aetna, Cigna United Healthcare (AARP), Mutual of Omaha, Humana, Florida Blue, United American, and many others.
