CHOICES is Available to Help Consumers Shop for and Compare Prices of Medicare Supplement Policies

(Tallahassee, FL – Insurance News and Markets) Florida residents who are 65 or older can take advantage of the CHOICES system to find available Medicare supplement or Medigap plans and compare prices to make the best choice for their situations. The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation has revised the rate information to reflect the current pricing of these products by health insurance companies in the Medicare Supplement market.

In the CHOICES system, the Medicare Supplement tool asks consumers to select options and enter specific criteria for calculating sample annual premium amounts for participating health insurance companies offering these plans in any Florida county. A search includes entering information about a consumer’s age, gender, insurance type, county zip code and the type of plan. All rates provided in the CHOICES system are for illustrative purposes only and consumers are encouraged to contact either an insurance agent or the insurance company for a premium quote based on their individual circumstances.
