Types of Medicare Plans in Florida

Florida offers a variety of Medicare plans to choose from. 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.

Here’s a brief overview of the types of plans:

Original Medicare (Parts A and B) plans

Original Medicare is a federally funded and administered health insurance program made especially for people 65 or older and for younger folks with certain health conditions. It’s available to every eligible Floridian. Part A covers inpatient hospital, skilled nursing, and hospice care, while Part B covers outpatient doctor’s services and durable medical equipment (DME), such as wheelchairs, walkers, insulin pumps, or oxygen equipment.

Medicare Advantage (Part C) plans

Medicare Advantage plans are offered by private insurance companies and regulated by the federal government. By law, all Medicare Advantage plans must provide at least the same coverage as Original Medicare. Most Medicare Advantage plans provide additional benefits, too, such as vision, dental, health and wellness programs, and gym memberships. Depending on your coverage area, they may also offer prescription drug (part D) coverage.

Medicare Part D (prescription drug) plans

Medicare Part D is an optional health insurance plan you can purchase that helps cover the costs of prescription drugs and medications. Depending on where you live, you may be able to buy a Part D plan separately or as part of a Medicare Advantage plan.

Expand

Medicare Supplement (Medigap) plans

Like Medicare Parts C and D, Medicare Supplement, also called “Medigap,” is an optional health insurance plan. Medigap can help pay for some of your health care costs, like deductibles, copayments, or coinsurance.

Am I Eligible for a Florida Medicare Advantage Plan?

In order to qualify for an Aetna Medicare Advantage plan, you must first be eligible for both Part A and Part B of Medicare (“Original” Medicare). 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 Aetna a call. A friendly, licensed agent can help.

When Can I Enroll?

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.
