Helping Seniors Make Better-Informed Medicare Decisions

Trying to pick a health insurance plan can be a chore for anyone. For many people, just mentioning the word "open enrollment" sends shivers down the spine. It seems like there's always a nagging feeling that you're wasting money, choosing a plan with poor in-network care, or both. One would think that health insurance gets easier as you approach retirement age, but the truth is that picking an initial Medicare coverage plan can be daunting.

Unfortunately, the confusing process of signing up for Medicare causes many seniors to forego healthcare coverage altogether. After all, Medicare enrollment can involve several federal agencies, including the Social Security Administration (or SSA) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (or CMS).

At Senior Medicare Insurance Services, our passion is guiding seniors through the confusion of Medicare. That way, they can enjoy retirement with peace of mind knowing they are protected and ready for life after 65. We work with dozens of insurance companies, giving our clients the chance to choose a plan that best fits their lifestyle.

We choose to design our senior insurance plans with a focus on optimal benefits structure, lower costs, and personalized service. Some independent insurance agencies see their aging customers as nothing more than a financial transaction waiting to happen. In contrast, we treat each of our clients with respect and dignity as we help them navigate the confusing waters of Medicare. Combined with individualized service, we help older Americans make well-informed decisions about insurance. Whether you're in need of senior Medicare Supplement Plan insurance in Daniel Island or simply have questions about signing up for Medicare, our team is here to help.

Guiding You Through The Confusion of Medicare!

Request a Consultation

What is Medicare?

If you're approaching the golden years of your life, it's important you understand what Medicare is if you don't already.

Medicare is a federal health insurance program reserved for people older than 65 who have worked full-time for at least ten years. The Medicare program is paid for by a combination of worker payroll tax, premiums paid by Medicare enrollees, and the U.S. government.

There are four parts of Medicare:

 Senior Medicare Advantage Plan Insurance Daniel Island, SC

This type of Medicare is free for most U.S. citizens. Medicare Part A helps older adults pay for care in a nursing facility, hospital visits, and some forms of in-home senior care.

This tier costs around $100 per month. It covers different outpatient services like lab tests, preventative care, doctor's visits, mental health care, clinical trials, and some forms of surgery.

This type of Medicare is most often called Medicare Advantage. This tier of Medicare allows seniors to choose health plans provided by insurance companies like Senior Medicare Insurance Services. Individuals who use Medicare Advantage commonly use Medicare supplement plan insurance to help pay for health care costs that Original Medicare won't cover, like coinsurance, deductibles, and copayments.

Sometimes called "PDPs," these plans add drug coverage to standard Medicare, some Medicare Private Fee-for-Service Plans (PFFS), some Medicare Cost Plans, and Medicare Medical Savings Account Plans (MSA).

The amount of money you pay for your health care depends on several factors, including:

At Senior Medicare Insurance Services, we offer a number of health insurance solutions for seniors. Two of our most used services include Medicare Advantage plan insurance and Medicare supplement plan insurance.

Senior Medicare Supplement Plan Insurance in Daniel Island

Sometimes called Medigap, the purpose of Medicare Supplement Insurance is to help fill in "gaps" that might not be covered by Original Medicare. You can think of a Medigap policy as a supplement for your Original Medicare benefits.

Private companies like Senior Medicare Insurance Services sell this type of insurance right here in South Carolina. While Original Medicare will pay for much of the cost associated with health care services you need, it may not cover all of your expenses. Generally, Medigap policies do not cover costs stemming from eyeglasses, private-duty nurses, dental care, hearing aids, or long-term care.

Depending on the Medicare Supplement Plan that you choose, it may cover out-of-the-country medical services when you travel abroad. Assuming you have Original Medicare coverage, your policy will cover its share of Medicare-approved health care costs. Once your Original Medicare coverage reaches its limit, your Medigap policy will pay its share of the fees.

Our Medigap policies are drafted to meet your specific needs, and can help cover remaining health care costs such as:

Deductibles

Copayments

Coinsurance

Important Information About Senior Supplement Plan Insurance

To dispel some confusion, you should know that a Medigap policy is not the same as a Medicare Advantage Plan. The latter helps you receive Medicare benefits, while the former supplements the benefits you obtain through your Original Medicare plan. As you begin to explore Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans, keep the following important information in mind:

 Senior Medicare Plans Daniel Island, SC

As you begin to explore Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans, keep the following important information in mind:

  • To qualify for a Medigap policy, you must first have Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B.
  • Payments on your Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan will be made to the private insurance company that you choose, like Senior Medicare Insurance Services. These payments are made every month and are paid in addition to the monthly payment you make for Medicare Part B.
  • If you are the holder of a Medicare Advantage Plan, it is illegal for an insurance company to sell you a senior Medicare Supplement Policy. If you plan on switching back to an Original Medicare plan, you may be able to purchase a Medigap policy.
  • If you have health problems as you age, your standardized Medigap policy is guaranteed to be renewable. So long as you pay your monthly premium, your insurance provider cannot cancel your policy.
  • Medigap policies only cover one person. If you have a spouse or family member that would like coverage, they must purchase a separate policy.
  • You may only buy a Senior Medicare Supplement Plan from an insurance agent that is licensed to sell them in your state. Senior Medicare Insurance Services has been licensed to sell Medigap policies in South Carolina for years. We have helped countless seniors get the Medicare coverage they need and continue to do so to this day.
  • In the past, Medigap policies were able to cover costs related to prescription drugs. As of January 1st, 2006, prescription drug coverage is not available on Medicare Supplement Plans. The best way to get coverage for your prescription drugs is to join a Medicare Prescription Drug Plan, often called Part D. Contact our office today to learn more about paying premiums on Medigap and Medicare plans.

For many people, the best time to buy senior Medicare Supplement Plan Insurance in Daniel Island is during the 7 months Medigap Open Enrollment Period. This period starts the day you turn 65 years old, so long as you hold Medical Insurance (Medicare Part B). Generally, during the enrollment period, you get more policy choices and better pricing. Once the enrollment period is over, you may not be able to purchase a Medigap policy. Contact Senior Medicare Insurance Services today to determine if you qualify for a Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan.

Senior Medicare Advantage Plan Insurance in Daniel Island, SC

A Medicare Advantage Plan is a kind of Medicare health coverage designed to provide seniors with all their Part A and Part B Medicare benefits. Many Medicare Advantage Plans will often include coverage of the following:

 Medicare Plans Daniel Island, SC

In addition, most Medicare Advantage Plans give seniors coverage for their prescription drug needs. When you enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan through Senior Medicare Insurance Services, your Medicare benefits are covered through your plan and will not be paid for by traditional Medicare.

How Medicare Advantage Plans Work

Sometimes called "MA Plans" or "Part C," Medicare Advantage Plans are considered an "all in one" solution to Original Medicare. Senior Medicare Advantage Plans are only offered by private companies that are approved, like Senior Medicare Insurance Services. Seniors who enroll in a Medicare Advantage Plan are still on Medicare. However, these individuals enjoy bundled plans that give seniors the benefits of hospital insurance (Medicare Part A), medical insurance (Medicare Part B), and sometimes drug coverage (Part D).

Medicare Advantage Plans are very popular because they cover all Medicare services and make life a little easier for seniors who have trouble understanding the nuances of Medicare.

When you contact Senior Medicare Insurance Services to choose your Medicare Advantage Plan, ask your agent about Medicare prescription drug coverage. Unless you already have drug coverage (Part D), you should seriously consider Part D coverage to help reduce costs associated with prescription drugs. You may also want to consider a Medicare Supplement Insurance Plan to help fill gaps in coverage that Original Medicare will not cover.

Medicare Advantage Plan Insurance Rules

Medicare works by paying a set amount of money to the companies that offer senior Medicare Advantage Plan insurance in Daniel Island. That money is used to pay for the care services that you need. Because Medicare Advantage Plans are different, you should expect out-of-pocket costs to vary depending on the plan you choose.

Different plans have different rules for how you receive services, such as:

  • If you must go to facilities, suppliers, or doctors that belong to your Advantage Plan for non-urgent and non-emergency care.
  • Whether you must get a referral to see a specialized doctor
 Healthcare Daniel Island, SC

Companies that offer Medicare Advantage Plans must follow strict rules, which are set by Medicare and can change every year.

Paying for Your Senior Medicare Advantage Plan Insurance

How much you pay for your Medicare Advantage Plan varies and depends on a few different factors. In most cases, if you need a kind of medical service, you will need to rely on the doctors and providers in your plan's service area and network to pay the lowest amounts. In some cases, if you choose to use a service outside of your plan's network of coverage, you may have to pay out-of-pocket.

We encourage you to contact our office today to learn more about Medicare Advantage Plans, how they work, what your options are, and how often you will have to pay out-of-pocket, if at all.

SC Adopt-a-Stream Program celebrates successes on its 5th anniversary, seeks more volunteers to protect local waterways

Photos provided - South Carolina Adopt-a-Stream volunteers discuss water quality at a free training workshop. Volunteers must first become certified, during which they learn how to measure water quality and what behaviors and land-use changes can impact waterway health.

The South Carolina Adopt-a-Stream, a volunteer program for monitoring water quality, is celebrating five years of protecting waterways across the state and is actively seeking more local volunteers who understand the importance of healthy watersheds.

First launched in South Carolina in 2017, the South Carolina Adopt-a-Stream program (SC AAS) is managed by a partnership between the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) and the Clemson University Center for Watershed Excellence (CU CWE).

To date, SC AAS volunteers have conducted more than 3,000 sampling events at streams around the state. That water sample data provides key information about stream conditions and helps guide volunteers, educators, conservation groups, and local governments on how they can partner together to protect and restore polluted waterways. The data volunteers collect are available to the public without any required log in through the SC AAS database.

“Our state’s SC Adopt-a-Stream volunteers are at the heart of this program and are what make it such a success,” said Sierra Hylton, DHEC’s SC Adopt-a-Stream Program Coordinator. “Through free trainings and workshops, our volunteers learn how to collect samples and understand water quality data. Our volunteer data provides impressive quantitative results that help create partnerships at the local level for protecting and restoring waterways. In turn, our volunteers become conservation advocates within their communities.”

Data collected by SC AAS volunteers have helped identify broken sewer pipes, broken water lines, and sedimentation issues. Detecting these problems early on helps local governments and other entities save time, resources and money to fix the issues at their source before their impacts become widespread or costly.

“Community science is changing the way we manage our natural resources worldwide and how we engage our public in their smart management,” said Katie Callahan, director of Clemson University’s Center for Watershed Excellence. "More eyes and ears outside can share powerful observations that through programs like SC Adopt-a-Stream, activate local authorities when the threat of pollution is observed. Free trainings and a less complicated database of results and photos democratizes environmental health data and encourages more broad participation in the decisions that affect our communities. We at the Center are grateful to be a player in such a powerful program for our state and waterways,”

Some recent SC AAS successes include:

SC AAS volunteers have been recognized by Gov. Henry McMaster, mayors, county councils, public water utilities, conservation groups, local businesses, and many others for their efforts to study, advocate for, and protect South Carolina’s irreplaceable waterways.

Both DHEC and the CU CWE encourage anyone with an interest in SC AAS to learn more. There are various ways to volunteer and support this water monitoring program in your community.

Information about how to become a volunteer, where and when training workshops take place, and additional information is available at scadoptastream.org or by contacting Sierra Hylton at hyltonsf@dhec.sc.gov or Emily Anderson at esa2@clemson.edu.

Philip Simmons, BE premiere boys’ volleyball programs

If practice makes perfect, then the Bishop England High School boys’ volleyball team should be in good shape this fall after going 3-0 in scrimmages in preparation for the regular season.

Bishop England and Philip Simmons, along with about 40 schools in the Palmetto State, will field boys’ teams this fall as the High School League finally sanctioned the sport in time for the 2022-23 academic year.

“It’s so new, we’re still learning so much,” said Bishop England coach Alec Swanson, whose team was scheduled to open the regular season Aug. 31 against Wando. “You can look at wins and losses to measure success, but I’m looking for understanding. The players need to understand the game. Some of the players’ only experience with volleyball was phys ed. Now, they have to understand how the game is played. And, they have to learn every single rule.

“Some of our players are new to the sport, so they still have so much to learn,” Swanson said. “We just need to have our players improve every time out, and step up when it comes time to play a game.”

Swanson, obviously, did not play volleyball at Bishop England. But that didn’t stop him from enjoying the sport. He could be found playing beach volleyball at The Windjammer and traveled around the South playing club volleyball.

Boys’ volleyball will have a different vibe than their girl counterparts with the net almost a foot higher. Players are taller, which means more traffic around the net and more power on serves and spikes.

Excitement was high at Bishop England as 30 boys tried out for the team.

“We only have a varsity team, so we did have to cut some players,” Swanson said. “Everyone has a reason to play. Some of our players wanted to try out because their sisters play volleyball.”

At Philip Simmons, coach Amanda Newell has been stressing fundamentals and team chemistry.

Newell played volleyball at Buford High School and followed that up with an impressive career at Wofford. Her coaching experience includes a stint at The Citadel.

“It’s crazy to see how quickly the team has improved,” said Newell, whose team also opened the season Aug. 31 against Cane Bay. “You can put them on the court, and they will show improvement in 10 minutes. We are coming together as a team. We’re improving our skills and developing as a team.”

Newell wants to develop a team that wins. But winning isn’t the only objective on the agenda.

“I want the players to have fun, enjoy the sport and spread the word at school,” Newell said.

According to the Palmetto Volleyball Association, boys’ volleyball is the fastest growing sport in the U.S. South Carolina boys’ volleyball began in 2019 with 14 teams. However, COVID-19 canceled the 2020 club season although 39 schools offered boys’ volleyball as a club sport. That number dropped to 21 teams because of the pandemic, but has rebounded to about 40 teams.

While the S.C. High School League sanctioned the sport, there will be no playoffs this fall which means there will be no state champion crowned.

Oak Hills Country Club, in San Antonio, Texas, has been chosen as the host site for the 2024 U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship and 2028 U.S. Senior Amateur Championship. The U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball will be contested from May 11-15, 2024, and the U.S. Senior Amateur will take place from Aug. 26-31, 2028.

“The USGA is thrilled to make our return to Oak Hills Country Club in both 2024 and 2028,” said Mark Hill, USGA senior managing director, Championships. “We know the course will be a true test for the best amateur golfers in the world. This will absolutely be showcased during the U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball and the U.S. Senior Amateur.”

Oak Hills Country Club is one of the oldest private member-owned country clubs in the country. Originally founded in 1922 as the Alamo Country Club, Oak Hills was designed by premier architect A.W. Tillinghast, whose vision of beauty and challenging play is enjoyed by golfers of all abilities. Alamo Country Club ceased operations during World War II and the course reopened as Oak Hills Country Club in 1946.

“The Oak Hills membership and the larger community of San Antonio are looking forward to welcoming both the U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball and U.S. Senior Amateur to our club,” said Cary Collins, director of golf at Oak Hills Country Club. “We look forward to hosting tremendous amateur golfers and having the opportunity to share our golf course on a national stage. It’s an incredible opportunity for all of us at the club and we are looking forward to working with the USGA closely over the next several years.”

Oak Hills previously hosted the 2001 U.S. Junior Amateur Championship, when Henry Liaw defeated Richard Scott, 2 and 1, in the final match. The club has also hosted 24 Texas Open Championships won by several legends of the game, including Arnold Palmer, Hale Irwin and Lee Trevino. The PGA Tour Champions’ AT&T Championship was also hosted at the club from 2002-2010, with Craig Stadler, Jay Haas, Fred Funk and John Cook among those to hoist the trophy. Oak Hills also hosted the 1987 debut of the Tour Championship, which was then known as the Nabisco Championship and was won by Tom Watson.

The U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball is open to female amateur golfers of all ages. Each member of the side must have a USGA Handicap Index® of 14.4 or lower. The 2023 championship will be held at The Home Course in DuPont, Wash., from May 13-17. Additional future sites include Daniel Island Club in Charleston, S.C., from May 2-6, 2026, and Bandon Dunes (Ore.) Golf Resort in 2037.

In April, Georgia residents Thienna Huynh and Sara Im outlasted Kaitlyn Schroeder and Bailey Shoemaker, 1 up, at Grand Reserve Golf Club in Puerto Rico to win the 7th U.S. Women’s Amateur Four-Ball Championship. This installment of the championship made history as the first USGA championship to be contested outside the mainland in a U.S. territory.

The U.S. Senior Amateur is open to any golfer who is 55 years of age or older and whose Handicap Index does not exceed 7.4. The 2022 championship is currently taking place at The Kittansett Club in Marion, Mass., through Sept. 1, while Martis Camp Club in Truckee, Calif. will host the 2023 edition from Aug. 26-31. The Honors Course in Ooltewah, Tenn., will host the 2024 championship from Aug. 24-29 and Biltmore Forest Country Club in Asheville, N.C., will host in 2025.

“The Woman Underwater” by Penny Goetjen
