If you desire more health coverage or need a hand paying for expenses that aren't covered by Original Medicare, you have choices! Together, Direct Auto Insurance in Saint Petersburg and Medicare.org are helping Florida Medicare beneficiaries explore plans and enroll in the right health insurance plan for their medical needs.
The federal Medicare health insurance program, including Part A and Part B, helps cover many expenses, but there are gaps in the coverage you may want to fill. That means that unless you have supplemental coverage, you'll have to use your own money for health services like vision care, copayments, coinsurance, dental, deductibles, and prescription drug coverage.
If you're just aging into Medicare in Florida or are nearing eligibility because of a disability, you have choices when it comes to how you receive your benefits. For example, you can choose to receive your benefits from either Original Medicare or through a Medicare Advantage Plan. If you have already enrolled in Original Medicare, Part A and/or B, you might still be able to make changes to your FL health insurance coverage during the Annual Enrollment Period (October 15th - December 7th).
Can Direct Auto and Medicare.org help you? We can, as long as you're eligible for Medicare insurance in Florida. 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.
