Medicare Florida Drug Plans Compared By AAMSI

eTradeWire News/10653546
LOS ANGELES - eTradeWire -- Florida seniors on Medicare typically have 22 different stand-alone prescription drug plans to compare during Medicare Open Enrollment according to an analysis by the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance.

"Nine different insurance companies offer plans with costs varying significantly," states Jesse Slome, director of the Association.  "A Florida senior could pay as little as $7.70 a month to as much as $174.30-per-month and that's just the plan premium cost."

Medicare Open Enrollment ends December 7 according to the Association director. "Those with stand-alone Medicare Part D drug coverage have only a few days left to compare their current coverage and switch to a better plan," Slome notes.

"The plan's monthly premium is just one factor to look at," Slome advises.  "Plans can change how they will cover drugs you currently take in 2022.  You may find far better coverage saving hundreds of dollars next year."

Open Enrollment is a good time to check your plan's Star Rating.  Medicare does in-depth surveys and awards each plan a rating from 1 to 5 stars.  According to the Association only two Florida plans scored a 4 star rating based on multiple factors judged by Medicare.
