Choosing a Medicare Supplement
Health Insurance Plans can make a huge difference in your life – if chosen wisely! The standardized benefits of Medigap plans mean that you purchase the same coverage every time albeit at different prices.
However, determining which insurance carrier is right for you might be tricky! Keep in mind that you will be paying the carrier a Medicare supplement premium on a monthly basis. Therefore, it is better to do some digging and finding out which ones offer the lowest premium rates.
So, how do you find that out? At Florida Health Agency, we advise our clients to look at the following parameters before taking a decision:
- Rate trend history of the insurance carrier. Go back at least three years and see how big of an annual rate increase the carrier shows. Companies do that so they can keep up with medical inflation. However, unreasonable rate increases can be a red flag.
- Financial ratings are given by companies who research how financially stable each insurance carrier is. Before you make your decision about any insurance carrier, it is better to look at their A.M. Best and Weiss Ratings.
Florida Health Agency offers personalized analyses to each client. Sit down with our experts and let them guide you to the best Medigap insurance carrier in terms of cost, rate trend history, and financial rating and rate trend history.

Advantages of Medigap
Health Insurance Companies Access to Doctors on Medigap Plans
Another great feature is that they enable you to see any doctor that participates in Medicare. You will have access to hundreds of thousands of providers across the United States.
Visiting a doctor is easy with Medigap plans because it doesn’t matter which insurance company your Medigap plan is through. As long as the doctor accepts Medicare, he will accept your Medicare supplement too.
People often get confused about this because there are other types of plans, called Medicare Advantage plans, which require you to use networks. As long as you stay with Original Medicare, then you can see any doctor who participates in Medicare. Around 93% of all U.S. primary care physicians accept Medicare.
In addition, we stand ready to assist in acting on your behalf in case you have any billing issues which may occur either between you and Medical Service Providers or with the insurance company you choose.
We are large enough to be staffed to be of assistance year round!
