Simply Healthcare Plans Will Offer Medicare Advantage Plans in 11 Florida Counties for 2019
Simply Healthcare Plans (Simply) will be offering up to seven Medicare Advantage health plans in 11 counties in 2019. Medicare-eligible individuals living in all of those 11 counties will have at least one new Simply plan available to them for next year. These 2019 health plans are open for enrollment in this year’s Medicare annual election period (AEP), which begins October 15 and continues through December 7, 2018.
“Simply strives to develop innovative solutions that aim to make it simpler for consumers to lead healthier lives,” said Tomas Orozco, President of Simply Healthcare Plans. “We are excited to expand the reach of our Medicare Advantage plans and enhance our services in 2019 so that more individuals are able to receive healthcare services from care providers in their community.”
Individuals eligible for Medicare – people 65 years and older and those with certain disabilities, chronic conditions, and other special needs – are able to enroll in the following 2019 Medicare Advantage health plans based on availability in their county of residence:

- Simply Comfort (IESNP)
- Simply Care (ISNP)
Many of the company’s Medicare Advantage plans, Simply More (HMO), Simply Level (HMO SNP), Simply Select (HMO), and Simply Complete (DSNP), have $0 monthly premiums, because the company recognizes that out-of-pocket costs are an important consideration for many consumers when they’re selecting health insurance.
These Simply Medicare Advantage health plans offer a variety of benefits, which may include:
- $0 copay for preventive dental care
- $0 copay annual eye exam and hearing exam
- Up to $750 hearing aid benefit

“Individuals eligible for Medicare have a number of health insurance choices so it’s important that Simply offers Medicare Advantage plans that deliver the healthcare experience and value consumers are seeking in their health plan.
