Comparing Medicare Advantage Plans
When comparing Medicare Advantage Plans, there are many factors to take into consideration: does the monthly premium represent a good value? Does the plan include prescription drug coverage? Is the annual deductible amount something you are comfortable with? What are the initial coverage and out-of-pocket limits?
In order to answer all these questions and more, eHealthInsurance offers a tool that makes it easy to compare Medicare Advantage Plans. Our plan finder is available on our homepage. After entering your zip code, you'll see a list of available plans in your area. This page shows general information, such as premium costs and prescription drug deductibles (if applicable). It also enables users to calculate their annual savings by inputting current prescription medications to find plans that may offer them at lesser cost.
Additionally, you may compare Medicare Advantage Plans side-by-side by choosing up to four of the plans in the listed search results. This is done by clicking the “compare up to four plans” checkbox, followed by the “compare” button once you have more than one plan selected. This will take you to a page where you will see all of the plan details for the chosen plans. Here, you can ensure these Medicare Advantage plans are applicable to your needs by reviewing the particulars. The plan compare tool shows which Medicare Advantage plans offer prescription coverage and gives greater details about each one: copays for preferred generic versus non-preferred generic and preferred brand versus non-preferred brand.
Using the eHealthInsurance plan tool to compare Medicare Advantage Plans also gives you access to additional information, such as a PDF copy of the plan brochure, as well as a general Medicare brochure. These may be accessed at the very bottom of the plan compare page.
The Medicare Advantage Plan finder is a convenient way for you to compare plan details side-by-side in order to ensure the most important aspects of your healthcare needs are covered.
