CarePlus Health Plans announced on Monday that it is broadening its footprint in the Florida Medicare Advantage market, beginning next year. In addition, the provider is expanding the range of plan options accessible to Medicare users in Florida who enroll in 2023 plans.
Residents of three counties – Flagler, Hernando, and St. Johns – are now eligible to receive coverage through CarePlus’ Medicare Advantage plan during Medicare’s Annual Enrollment Period. The enrollment period runs from Oct. 15 through Dec. 7 for plan coverage taking effect Jan. 1, 2023.
In the three counties, CarePlus will offer nine varying Medicare Advantage that covers a range of comprehensive treatment and medication plans.
In Hernando County, several of the plans for chronic conditions include out-of-network coverage.
“We are thrilled to be able to reach additional Floridians by offering our CarePlus Medicare Advantage plans, designed to provide robust coverage for high-quality healthcare, in a total of 21 counties across the state for coverage starting in 2023,” said Bruno Piquin, CarePlus President. “People with Medicare throughout Florida have responded overwhelmingly positive to the value and quality of health care our plans afford our members. We’re also excited to introduce new plan offerings and features, which we believe will add value and lower costs for members, many of whom are being impacted by the challenging economic times.”
CarePlus also announced today that its CareSalute Medicare Advantage HMO plan option in Florida has been expanded. CarePlus will now provide special plans for individuals with specified chronic diseases (Chronic Condition Special Needs plans) and those qualifying for both Medicaid and Medicare (Dual Special Needs plans), in addition to plans accessible to all Medicare beneficiaries.
CareSalute was implemented by the company to serve as a supplement to VA healthcare services by subsidizing costs at non-VA facilities.
The 17 counties where CarePlus is offering its 2023 CareSalute Medicare Advantage plan include: Brevard, Broward, Flagler, Hernando, Hillsborough, Indian River, Lake, Marion, Orange, Osceola, Palm Beach, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Seminole, Sumter, and Volusia.
