Florida Medigap policy basics

Here’s the skinny on Florida Medigap plans:

  • 10 standardized plans for persons Medicare Part B eligible prior to January 1, 2020
  • 8 standardized plans for persons Medicare Part B eligible as of 2020 (plans F and C are not available)
  • Plans are standardized with benefits and networks the same to the majority of other states
  • Florida is an issue-age state (explained below)

Florida’s Medigap Issue-Age rates explained

Medigap plans in most states are priced in one of three ways: 1) Age Attained, 2) Community Rated or 3) Issue Aged. In Florida, all Medigap plans are regulated to be priced as the issue aged. This means that the price is based on the age you enroll and cannot increase just because you are getting older.

Medigap plans can increase for inflation and other factors, but you will not see your plans price go up on your birthday like they do with age-attained plans. With issue-age plans, you want to purchase them when you are first eligible because they are usually less expensive for someone 65 than someone 70 or 75 years old.
