When people make their transition to Florida Medicare one of the first questions we get is, “What is Florida Medigap insurance?” This is usually followed by a quick succession of questions involving the differences between the different parts of health insurance that a senior can choose. The confusion in all of this comes from the amazing amount of information you start receiving six months before you turn 65. Along with information on the Medigap Florida plans you are bombarded with info for Medicare Part A, Part B, Part D, Florida Medicare supplement plans, Florida Medigap insurance and many other mixed messages and confusing terms.
Florida Medigap Insurance vs. Florida Medicare Insurance
To cut through all the clutter we can break this down into two simple concepts. There are Parts of Florida Medicare insurance and there are Medigap insurance Florida plans. The parts of Florida Medicare insurance are Part A (hospital coverage), Part B (doctor’s visit and out-patient coverage) and Part D (prescription drug coverage). Each of these are there to help with the cost of health insurance for seniors. The shock for most seniors is that they are not comprehensive coverage. There are “gaps” in the coverage, and thus, Florida Medigap insurance was created. Now Medigap Florida insurance comes in a bunch of different names. The most popular are Florida Medigap and Florida Medicare supplements. While the names get thrown around back and forth what they do is the same. They fill the gaps in coverage left by Florida Medicare insurance. There are ten Medigap Florida plans (you can see a detailed description of each of the Florida Medicare supplement plans HERE). Each plan will fill at least four of the nine coverage gaps in Florida Medicare insurance. Florida Medigap insurance plan F will cover all nine gaps and is the only plan that, when combined with Medicare, provides comprehensive health insurance coverage. You should know that each plan provides the same coverage no matter which company you choose. So if you go with the plan from Florida AARP or Florida Humana or any other company offering Florida Medigap insurance you know that the coverage will be identical.
