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 North Charleston 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 North Charleston, 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 North Charleston

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 North Charleston, 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 North Charleston 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 North Charleston, 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 North Charleston, 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 North Charleston. 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 North Charleston, 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.

Vicki Gannon has been bowling at Sandpiper Lanes in North Charleston for more than 40 years.

By the end of the month, she will have to find a new place to enjoy the pastime with friends.

The 2.5-acre corner property at the heavily traveled Ashley Phosphate and Cross County roads intersection where the bowling alley has hosted countless tournaments for the past 45 years has been sold. Employees have been told the lanes will close by the end of May.

The buyer of the property is Encore-Ashley Phosphate LLC of Sullivan’s Island, an affiliate of Encore Real Estate Development of Tampa, Fla. The firm paid $3.1 million for the 32-lane bowling center in late March, according to Charleston County land records.

The previous owner was the family-operated CGC Recreation Inc. of Greenwood, which paid $1.25 million for the property in 2003.

An Encore representative did not immediately respond for comment about the purchase.

A site work permit application for a convenience store and gas station has been submitted to the city of North Charleston, city spokesman Ryan Johnson said.

Bowling center manager David Morga found it hard to digest when he first heard about the sale and looming closing of the longtime business.

“I was shocked,” Morga said. “They remodeled in 2017, and last year was one of the best years we ever had. This is definitely going to hurt the bowling world. Tournaments bring people from all over the state as well as North Carolina and Georgia.”

Gannon said she was saddened by the closing of the bowling alley, where senior leagues have played for many years.

“We have become like family,” she said.

Longtime bowler Michelle Eleazer Smith said she, too, was stunned to learn of the decision in April.

“The closure is so sad,” said Smith, who has been bowling since 1978 at Sandpiper Lanes. “There are not a ton of options if you play in a league or are a sanctioned player looking to play in a tournament.”

Smith said the bowling alley’s demise will leave three other venues in the Lowcountry for sanctioned players: Royal Lanes in Goose Creek, Ashley Lanes in West Ashley and Swamp Fox Lanes in Moncks Corner. Other public and private bowling sites are in the Charleston area, as well.

In a farewell nod to the longtime entertainment site, Morga said Sandpiper Lanes will throw a going- away party from 8 p.m. until midnight May 14.

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCIV) — A nonprofit based in North Charleston is doing its part to help the people of Ukraine.

Members of the Water Mission team are working to get clean water to millions of refugees, many of whom are still stuck in the warzone.

Project Manager Craig Williams and Disaster Team Response Leader Josh Burns have been in Poland and Romania since the end of February working to bring water to Ukrainian refugees.

“You see children without hope in their eyes, with fear in their eyes. Parents with fear in the eyes,” Williams says.

“We’ve talked to refuges who’ve lost their homes, we’ve talked to refuges who had to leave behind their families,” Burns says.

Water Mission has worked for more than 20 years to bring clean water to areas hit by natural or man-made disasters. George Greene IV, the president and CEO of Water Mission, says the war in Ukraine presents a new challenge.

"We don’t send staff into conflict zones,” Greene explains. “There are stories of other non-profits and charities that are in Ukraine and operating, and all of the sudden their areas where they’re trying to provide things like food and things like that have become targets.”

“We can’t go in to where people are most in need. Normally we arrive, the disaster is finished, and our work is to put the pieces back together, or help the local people put the pieces back together,” says Williams. “Here we can’t get in.”

Greene says the company has sent at least over nine water filtration systems that have been set up in Poland, Romania and Ukraine.

"Once its running, we’re producing the equivalent of about 10 gallons a minute of treated water,” he says.

That equates to around 10,000 gallons of treated water in a day.

“As a result of this conflict, water municipalities, supply systems, things like that are things that have been targeted,” Greene says. “There are dissolve contaminants in some of the water sources that we’re seeing that are things you see as a result of agriculture and industry. Then you look at concerns around what’s happening with sites like Chernobyl and potential radioactive issues.”

The team says the work won’t stop until the conflict is over and people can return home.

“Despite suffering, that there is hope, and there is going to be healing, and reconciliation,” Burns says.

Greene says the team will continue to work in Ukraine even after the war is over to help reestablish water connections as the country rebuilds.

NORTH CHARLESTON — Riverfront Park has become a popular event destination, from High Water to Charleston Wine + Food to the upcoming High Tide Festival.

Joining the list is a new endeavor by Hootie & The Blowfish’s lead man and a country star in his own right, Darius Rucker.

Rucker, who lives in the Lowcountry and is a three-time Grammy winner, has curated a new two-day music festival called Riverfront Revival at the North Charleston park. It will take place Oct. 8-9 and include 18 acts performing on two stages.

The festival is described as a “love letter to country music and to South Carolina’s Lowcountry.”

“Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Charleston,” shared Rucker in a statement. “For years now, I’ve had this bucket list dream of bringing together a bunch of friends to perform in a way that also showcases this incredible city and all it has to offer. I can’t wait to see it become a reality this fall — and I hope the fans are as excited as we are.”

The inaugural roster of the family-friendly festival features some local performers, along with touring acts who have played the Charleston area frequently and a few fresh faces. The genres represented by these artists include country, folk, funk, singer-songwriter, pop and rock.

The lineup includes:

Indie band Susto, rock group Blue Dogs, Citadel graduate and former “The Voice” contestant Mitchell Lee, and country singer Lauren Hall are among locals playing the festival.

And, of course, Rucker.

“Darius is a home-grown star with a genuine love for his state, making him an incredible ambassador for South Carolina,” Duane Parrish, director of the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation & Tourism, said in a statement. “We are all looking forward to celebrating South Carolina’s Lowcountry and welcoming thousands of visitors to this one-of-kind music festival in October.”

The two-day festival will be loaded with live music, yet-to-be-announced cultural experiences engaging culture and food inspired by the region’s unique foodways, according to organizers at SRE Entertainment.

The company features High Water Festival veteran and Ear For Music founder Rob Lamble, along with partners Ean Wolf and Taylor Shomaker.

The daily schedules for the Riverfront Revival have not yet been released, but music will be performed from 1-11 p.m. daily.

General admission tickets start at an early bird price of $124.50, plus fees, before rising to $149.50 and then $174.50. VIP tickets, which include a special merchandise package, dedicated entrance lane, priority and up-close concert viewing, an exclusive lounge area, dedicated bar and premium restrooms, are $399.50, plus fees.

They will go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. May 4 at riverfrontrevival.com.

Deed restriction prohibits grocery store at new $200M North Charleston project

NORTH CHARLESTON — A decades-old deed restriction hinders the kinds of businesses, namely a grocery store, that can be included in a multimillion-dollar mixed-use project at Centre Pointe near the Tanger Outlets.

Lenn Jewel is with RealtyLink, the firm developing the Uptown North Charleston project along International and Tanger Outlet Boulevards. The development calls for a Topgolf entertainment venue, a 300-unit apartment building, two hotels, two parking garages, a coffee shop, several restaurants and office space.

Jewel said at the April 11 North Charleston Planning Commission meeting that Walmart at Centre Pointe had a restriction put in place about two decades ago when the Centre Pointe area opened to limit a grocery store from being constructed nearby.

“They had a list of what they consider primary uses and that’s why there’s no gas station, there’s no grocery store, no drug store and no department store greater than 35,000 square feet unless it’s part of the original (plan) 20 years ago,” Jewel said.

Conversation about the grocery store restriction took place as the city’s Planning Commission recommended approval for rezoning 125 acres along International and Tanger Outlet Boulevards for the Uptown project from commercial redevelopment to planned development. City Council will make the final decision for the rezoning, which would pave the way for a number of variances needed for the project, given its density and height.

It was initially unclear as to whether the new zoning would also hinder the kinds of businesses that could be established at Uptown, including grocery stores, wholesale clubs, department stores, pharmacies, discount stores and gas stations. Jewel clarified by saying the prohibitions have nothing to do with the zoning of the properties, but rather with the agreement made when Centre Pointe was being planned decades ago.

Walmart’s grocery store restriction applies to several hundred acres of land near International and Tanger Outlet boulevards, including the 125 acres where developers are constructing the Uptown North Charleston project.

Walmart is about a mile from the the incoming Uptown development, serving as the site’s closest grocer.

Farther south, the city has tried to draw a supplier of food and fresh vegetables.

Much of the city’s southern end along Rivers Avenue has been federally designated as a “food desert” due to the lack of a grocery stores nearby. The city years ago tried to draw a store to the old Shipwatch Square Shopping Center, but those efforts fell through. Charleston County is currently building a social services building on part of the Shipwatch land.

Planning Commissioner Matt Brady was the only commissioner to inquire about the grocery store restriction during the meeting.

Brady said he wanted clarification about the prohibition because he understands the city has been working for years to attract a variety of grocers to North Charleston. Though Walmart might fill that void for the Centre Pointe area, a variety of stores is beneficial for residents throughout the city, Brady said.

A few miles east of the Uptown project is the Park Circle community, where Brady lives. He said there’s a desire in Park Circle for more healthy food options. Park Circle abuts Liberty Hill, a historically African American community that could also benefit from a grocery store in the area, Brady said.

“My neighbors all want access to a wider variety of full-service grocers,” he said.

Brady said the development of Uptown’s multifamily units, entertainment venues and commercial properties could possibly draw a supermarket to the area wherever one is allowed.

“I think with the growth coming from Park Circle and from Uptown, that eventually the market dynamics will shake out to where a grocer will want to locate somewhere in that area,” he said.

Mayor Keith Summey said a grocery store would be more ideal if it were located near Park Circle or on the southern end. He noted the small residential population in the Centre Pointe area.

“I think that is not a good location for a grocery store,” he said. The residential component in that area is minuscule.”

The Uptown development, which Jewel valued at over $200 million, gained traction last year when the Army Corps of Engineers gave approval to fill more than 20 acres of wetlands on the site and to offset the loss by acquiring 780 acres in Berkeley and Dorchester counties for mitigation.

In addition to addressing environmental concerns, engineers for the project said the plan also keeps in mind the need to address traffic along an often-congested commercial corridor that houses the city’s Coliseum and Performing Arts Center, and several hotels.

Uptown engineers performed a traffic study of the roads and intersections near the project, including International Boulevard, West Montague and the Interstate 526/International Boulevard ramps, said Reveer Group project manager and civil engineer West Mauney.

The project team recommended roadway improvements including a new signalized intersection off International Boulevard across from the coliseum, and a new road that connects Centre Pointe Drive and Tanger Outlet Boulevard, Mauney said.

“The traffic study concluded that the surrounding intersections will operate at an acceptable level of service as defined by the S.C. Department of Transportation,” he said.
