ACCESS for seniors

Everything You Need to Know About ACCESS

Whether you’re a senior in the market for the best affordable health care options available, or you’re simply making sure you’re getting the best coverage you can, the abundance of options can be overwhelming. That’s before you get into questions like: are you being overcharged? Do you have the coverage you need for your lifestyle and health goals? Does your health care plan provide access to a doctor who knows you well and makes you feel comfortable? A popular health care option for Florida residents is ACCESS for seniors.

This is one of the many government programs available to the full-time residents of the state of Florida.  This health care option first came about in a 2008 Florida Legislature that developed the Cover Florida Health Care Access Program. ACCESS (Automated Community Connection to Economic Self Sufficiency) came about after legislation brought to light that a large number of Florida residents were often going uninsured due to a lack of access to affordable plans. This was originally started to serve that population and give them basic access to preventive medical services, inpatient hospital stays, and emergency care. It has since grown into a reliable health care option for all Florida residents looking for quality reliable health care plans. Since its origination, it has expanded to offer services that are ideal for patients seeking senior health care specialists. 

What Can ACCESS Offer Me?

The ACCESS program goes above and beyond health care. While that is its main priority, the ACCESS program offers patients more benefits like a Medicaid Savings Program. Having this savings program gives patients the ability to help cover the cost of medical expenses such as premiums, deductibles, coinsurance, copayments, and prescription drug coverage costs. This government program also has options for long-term care facilities, food stamps, and STS special transportation—ideal care options for seniors of Florida. ACCESS also provides citizenship application assistance and the opportunity to receive a lifeline cell phone in case of emergencies. These benefits not only help you save money, but they provide ease of mind knowing you’ll be taken care of. 

Whether you’re trying to find the best health care plan for you or a loved one, you can rest easy in the hands of ACCESS. Their program benefits and savings plans ensure that you don’t have to worry about the details of your health care so that you can focus on preventative health care steps with your doctor.
