How does Medicare work and what is it?

Medicare is an established federal health insurance program that helps American Citizens and permanent legal residents aged 65 and over. Some people with a pre existing health condition or disability may also qualify.

Most people will auto enrol onto Plan A and Plan B when they are eligible. A easy way to understand the difference is Plan A is like Hospital Insurance and Plan B is like having Medical Insurance. You can read more about the differences between the plans here.

Statistics from 2018 from the CMS, also known as the Centres for Medicare and Medicaid Services, showed that there were more than 4.3 million Medicare people benefiting in Florida.

As is the case in many other cities, Medicare plans in Florida were auto enrolled onto the Original Medicare – the Federal Health Insurance Program for those who qualify by age or disability.

There are a large proportion of people who get their Medicare in Florida through the Medicare Advantage Plans. These plans are obtained through Private Medicare approved health insurance companies. They tend to offer the same benefits as Plan A and Plan B, but there are some differences.

Having all the plans can start to cost a lot, so you may want to look at some other options. For instance, you could stay with the Original Medicare, but if you needed prescription drug coverage, you could sign up to the stand alone Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Plan. These plans can be obtained through private Medicare approved insurance companies.

When you are first eligible to get a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan, it is optional as to whether or not you sign up. Although if you find yourself signing up at a later date you could be charged a late enrolment fee.

One more plan that you could sign up to is Medicare Supplement also known as Medigap. This insurance plan works alongside your Original Medicare coverage.
