Thousands of Florida Seniors were caught by surprise when CMS (Centers for Medicaid and Medicare Services) changed their Medicare.
Their Medicare Advantage Plan Physicians United was declared insolvent and they were returned to original Medicare without notification back to June 1st 2014. This has resulted in large out of pocket costs for many insured. The Florida based insurer served 38,000 members in 17 counties.
Seniors have been given until August 31st to select a new Medicare Advantage plan.
