Health Insurance in Ocala, FL and Belleview, FL
PROTECTING YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
Health insurance covers your medical and surgical expenses if you need medical attention or surgery. It helps you plan ahead and it gives you peace of mind regardless of what happens to you. It doesn't matter if you've just had a new baby, moved for the first time, or even just want to supplement your existing coverage. We are here to help. At Bird Insurance Agency, LLC we have a full and adaptable health insurance program and we’ll tailor this program to your individual needs. Whether you're alone, have a family, or run a business, we can provide you with the coverages necessary for the best possible price. Even if you just want to sit down and talk over your options, we are happy to help educate you on your options and eventually help you pick the right choice.
COVERAGES AND A POLICY CUSTOMIZED TO FIT YOU
The right coverage can be the difference between being secure in the event of anything that necessitates medical attention and suffering huge financial losses. We will work closely with you to find the right coverages and to ensure that you are completely protected. If you run a business then your coverages will differ somewhat from the coverages in individual and family plans, but the benefits your employees will receive are similar to those that individual policyholders receive.
We work with a large number of carriers to ensure that you have the greatest possible selection of insurance options. These options include:
- Individual & Family Health Insurance
- Group Health Insurance
- Dental Coverage
- Vision Coverage
- Long-Term Care Insurance
- Temporary Health Insurance
- Supplemental Insurance
- Disability Insurance
- Medical Expense Insurance
- Child Health Insurance
- Travel Health Insurance
- Prescription Insurance
If you need to combine health insurance with another insurance policy for which a combination is possible, just ask us. We’ll help you make the combination that fits best and this will save you time and money.
THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT AND WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU
The Affordable Care Act has changed health insurance somewhat. We’ll help you navigate the details of the Act and will help you find the insurance you need. There are enrollment dates that are important, and these dates are:
• November 1, 2016 – Open enrollment begins (marketplace)
• December 15, 2016 – Last date to buy for 1/1/17 effective date
• January 31, 2017 – Last date enroll for coverage in 2016 (coverage would begin 2/01/2017)
If you have questions about these dates or anything regarding the Affordable Care Act, just ask us or see the Affordable Care Act’s official site, HealthCare.gov.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We believe in keeping you secure under all circumstances. We’ll consult with you so that you have the insurance you need. Once your policy is in place we’ll monitor it and we will keep you informed. We actively manage risk so we’ll help you reduce the chances that you’ll need medical attention or have to use your insurance. We also manage claims, and this is one of the ways that we support you. We’re reachable whenever you need us, so you'll always be able to get a hold of us.
What is an SEP?
An SEP or Special Enrollement Period is something that you may qualify for if you've experienced an "out of the ordinary" life event. Normally, you can only enroll for healthcare during specified enrollement periods but if, for instance, you have a baby, lose your job, move addresses, etc, you may qualify to enroll during the SEP.
