How Much Does A Medicare Supplement Plan Cost In Naples Florida?
How much does a Medicare supplement plan cost in Naples, Florida? Well, that depends upon a variety of factors. Generally, Medicare supplement plan monthly
premiums run slightly higher in Florida than they do in most other states. But there are other factors that have a far greater impact on price.
We will list the factors that impact the premium rates of Medicare supplement insurance. They are ordered from the most significant impact, to the least:
- Plan Type
- Tobacco Use
- Health Status
The most significant factor is the plan type that you choose. For example, the monthly premium of a plan type "F" is going to be significantly higher than the monthly premium of a "high deductible plan type F".
This is because each Medicare supplement plan type offers a different benefit structure. All supplement plans are designed to cover medical costs that are not covered by traditional Medicare.

With very few exceptions, the older you are, the higher your monthly premium.
