Medicare Advantage Plans
Open enrollment for Medicare begins in October each year. The vast majority of Medicare Advantage plans are HMOs or PPOs that require you to get your care from a specific local provider network.
It’s important to research your options carefully to ensure you receive the full benefits of your plan and care from the doctor and hospital of your choice.
Health Insurance Marketplace Open Enrollment
Open enrollment for the Health Insurance Exchange/Marketplace for coverage typically opens in November. When choosing a health plan, be sure visits to your physicians and hospital of choice are covered under the plan. Click here for more information
Health Insurance We Accept
The following list is subject to change at any time. Please refer to your provider directory to ensure that Sarasota Memorial Health Care System is accepted by your insurance plan or contact your insurance company’s member services.In addition to the following list, Sarasota Memorial accepts:
Please note that we may not be in network with all plans for all payers. Please call your health plan for specific information. Except for the four plans listed above, Sarasota Memorial is an out-of- network provider for Medicare Replacement/Advantage HMO, PPO and POS plans. Except in emergency situations, using an out-of- network facility can result in a patient being responsible for a larger portion of a hospital bill.
We are not a network provider for Medicare Select supplemental plans. Medicare Select members may choose Sarasota Memorial for their care, but depending on each plan’s benefits, you may be responsible for the Part A deductible for non-emergency hospital care. Check with your insurance company, as some will pay that deductible when providers are not in network.
