Question DetailsAsked on 7/16/2015

Who are the best health insurance agents in Port Charlotte, Florida?

I need health insurance coverage from September 1, 2015 until December 15, 2015 (at which time I will qualify for Medicare). I live in Florida.

Make sure to choose a broker and not an agent. Agents typically work with onely 1 carrier and brokers work with many, if not all the carriers in your area. Additionally, because you only need traditional coverage for 3 months, then are trasitioning to Medicare, choose a broker that does both traditional health insurance and medicare so that you don't have to change brokers after only 3 months.

Medicare allows you to choose your supplement plan 3 months ahead of time, so you can actually complete the entire process in a very short period of time. My advice would be a term health plan until 65, then Medicare Supplement or Advantage at 65, whichever fits you best. Good luck, and don't hesitate to let me know if you have further questions.
