. Recognizing that an historic number of Florida residents will need to choose their Medicare benefits, Bill added a Medicare section to the website. Choosing the right type of coverage and providers can be a daunting task for baby boomers looking for Florida Medicare coverage. Bill added the Medicare section to GetOnlineQuotes.com to help Florida residents navigate these choices. After using his website to get Florida Medicare insurance quotes

Choosing Medicare coverage means deciding on which parts to enroll in as well as understanding which providers you can work with. Bill has included a brief description of Medicare Parts A, B, C and D as well Medicare supplements and Medigap plans. By helping Florida resident understand the basics of Medicare coverage
, Bill believes Florida’s baby boomer population can make a more informed choice. “I always enjoy working with an educated consumer,” says Bill.
Bill also provides some good news for Florida’s Medicare population: Rates will rise less than expected next year. Bill noted that “The government’s announcement on Thursday will help Florida’s senior population given that we are living in a tough economy.” Rates for Medicare Part B will only rise by $3.50 per month. A much higher jump had been predicted as recently as May. Premiums were frozen for the last two years because there was no increase in many people’s Social Security benefits. But benefits are increasing to cover inflation. The premiums for Medicare Advantage will actually decrease by 4%. That is the second consecutive decrease for those who opt for Medicare Advantage plans.
Both parties were quick to comment on the news. Representative Pete Stark, D-California, said that “these reductions are a direct result of the Medicare reforms included in the Affordable Care Act.” On the other hand a spokeswoman for Representative Dave Camp, R-Michigan, insisted that the savings were because “seniors aren’t going to the doctor as frequently, largely because they can’t afford it.” Senior advocate AARP welcomed the news but continued to monitor proposals to change Medicare as part of financial reform.
Regardless of where the savings come from Bill Messett reminds Florida’s seniors that open enrollment ends on December 7th. He encourages all Florida residents who are 65 and older to visit GetOnlineQuotes.com and get a Florida Medicare insurance quote
