South Carolina Medicare plans for those turning 65 are plentiful.
There are many different plan options available from various carriers, and it is important to get the big picture. While there are only a few, standardized Medicare plans, the cost between these plan differ in a big way.
One company could have Plan F for $102 per month, while a different Medicare carrier has that same, exact Plan F for $130 per month or even more. These are the same, exact Plan F plans as sanctioned by Medicare and approved by the State of South Carolina, but there is a very big difference in rates.
One of the biggest problems is when a senior is contacted by an agent that focuses solely on folks that are Turning 65 years old. The agents actually call them “T65‘s”. These agents are often “captive” agents, which means they are actually employed by one, single insurance company.
This is like being a carpenter and only having ONE tool on your tool belt.
The far better solution is to have an independent Medicare agent who represents everyone in the state. Depending on your county, whether you are a smoker or not, and your age, there are significant differences that a captive agent simply will not be allowed to tell you about.
