The High Cost of Medicare Supplements in Florida and what you can do to protect your wallet

Any one who is on Medicare who resides in Palm Beach County, Miami-Dade County know first hand how expensive it can be to go on to Medicare and purchase a Medigap plan which are also referred to as Medicare Supplementary Insurance Plans. There are many factors that go into the pricing of a Medicare Supplement, some of them being fraud, the highest density of people turning 65 in the United States and the fact that medical expenses seem to keep rising, all play a part in the high cost of Medicare Supplements.

What can a person do to combat the high cost?

  • Second. Plan F is the most popular plan, but just starting out with Medicare at 65 can cost a non smoking female $237 a month with United American Insurance company. For a male the most affordable Plan F is with United Health Care at $243 month. (In conjunction with the 99.60 that is deducted out of most social security checks, that’s over $330 a month!)

LOOK INTO HIGH DEDUCTIBLE PLAN F.

  • Plans start around $85 a month and here is how it works.
  • Medicare covers you for 80% both in the hospital and at the doctors after your deductibles are met.
  • With High deductible Plan F you are responsible for the first $2000 before you are 100% covered.

The beauty of that is this: Even if you were to hit the $2000 deductible you would have not spent any more than you would if you bought a traditional Plan F. So long story short, the people who use their insurance to see their doctors anywhere from 2-10x a year will save BIG MONEY each year and if the worst case scenario where to happen after that person has spent the $2000 they are 100% covered, which just means they spent the same amount in that year as they would if they started paying the $234 and $243 prices right from the start.
