It's crucial that beneficiaries choose a plan that aligns with their needs because typically they can only change their decision once per year.”
Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) October 24, 2016
Today, Medicare plan review website MedicareHealthPlans.com launched its new Suggest-a-Plan tool that recommends to Medicare beneficiaries which type of Medicare coverage they should choose based on their unique needs. The tool guides the customer in choosing either Medicare Advantage or Medicare Supplement with Original Medicare.
Choosing the right type of coverage can be confusing and time-consuming for Medicare beneficiaries. MedicareHealthPlans.com provides a simple, step-by-step tool that specifically recommends either Medicare Advantage or Supplement coverage based on a beneficiary's demographic, financial, and other details.
The tool asks users a few basic questions, ranging from how often they see a doctor to whether they will need coverage outside their home state. Beneficiaries also indicate how they would like to save their Medicare dollars—on lower premiums or smaller copays. The tool will recommend Medicare Advantage or Medicare Supplement. For some users, either one may be a good fit.
The Suggest-a-Plan tool not only educates users on the benefits of the recommended types of coverage, it also helps beneficiaries purchase a Medicare plan from a licensed agent.
"Understanding which type of Medicare plan is the right choice is important because plans are continuously changing," said Heather Woody, licensed insurance agent for Clearlink Insurance Agency. "Certain factors like doctor networks, traveling beneficiaries, premium options, doctor visit frequency, and additional coverage—such as dental, vision, wellness, and prescription drugs—will help determine the right plan. It's crucial that beneficiaries choose a plan that aligns with their needs because typically they can only change their decision once per year.”
