With all its sunshine and sandy beaches, everyone knows Florida is the go-to place for retirees. That’s probably why it’s the state with the second highest number of people receiving Medicare benefits with over over 4 million people enrolled in Medicare as of 2018.
If you’re looking for more information about Medicare plans in Florida, you’ve come to the right place. Speak with a licensed agent today to learn more about your options in the Sunshine State.
There are a variety of Medicare plans to choose from in Florida and all other states. You may elect to get federally funded health coverage through Original Medicare, or you can opt for a Medicare Advantage plan offered through a Medicare-approved private insurance company.
Your health coverage options may vary depending on where you live in the state, so speak with a licensed agent today to find out what kind of coverage you are eligible for.
In order to qualify for a Medicare Advantage plan, you must first have both Part A and Part B of Medicare (“Original” Medicare) and live in the plan’s service area. Typically, this means you need to be at least 65 years old, though some exceptions may apply.
If you have any questions or concerns regarding your eligibility for Medicare or Aetna Medicare Advantage, give us a call. A friendly, licensed agent can help.
If you’re enrolling in Medicare for the first time and you qualify for both Part A and Part B of Medicare, you can enroll in an Aetna Medicare Advantage plan during your Initial Enrollment Period. Your Initial Enrollment Period begins three months before the month of your 65th birthday and ends three months after your birth month.
If you’re already on Medicare and want to enroll in a Medicare Advantage plan, you can do so during the Annual Enrollment Period, which starts October 15 and ends December 7 every year.
Under some circumstances, you may be able to enroll in an Aetna Medicare Advantage plan during a Special Enrollment Period. For example, if you’ve recently moved or if you’re currently living in a nursing home. Talk to a licensed agent today to see if your life circumstance applies.
