CLEARWATER, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Each year at this time, people across the country who are on Medicare will make an important decision about their healthcare during the annual open enrollment period from October 15 to December 7. Now is the time when those who are eligible can change their Medicare plan for the coming year.
With more Medicare health plan options than ever, it’s important for people to understand their choices. Medicare consumers want to feel confident that the plan they’ve chosen will fit their needs and budget. So, what’s the best way to determine whether your current Medicare plan is right for you?
To help answer the question, easyMedicare.com provides important information to guide consumers through the plan-selection process. easyMedicare.com is the newest platform from e-TeleQuote, a leading national insurance online platform based in Clearwater, Florida, designed to help people navigate the Medicare enrollment process.
“We work with people individually and get to know their specific healthcare needs,” said e-TeleQuote CEO Anthony P. Solazzo. “First, we discuss their current plan and its benefits. From there, we learn more about their needs for the upcoming year to see if their current plan will be suitable. Because plan benefits can change, it’s important to review your plan each year to make sure you’re getting the coverage you need.”
Drawing on many years of Medicare experience, Solazzo and easyMedicare.com serve as advocates for Medicare consumers by helping them ask the right questions to determine which plan will be the right fit.
- Has your health changed since last year? Are you taking different medications since last year? Some plans change their coverage, so it’s best to know which medications are covered for 2018.
- Do you have a chronic illness such as hypertension, diabetes or heart disease? There are special health plans that offer specific benefits for these conditions that may improve your quality of care and reduce out-of-pocket costs.
- Are you concerned about out-of-pocket expenses or extra benefits? Some Medicare Advantage plans may cover much of your overall healthcare costs and also offer prescription drug coverage.
- Are your doctors and hospital part of the network? Some Medicare health plans may change provider networks, which can affect which doctors (especially specialist physicians) you may see under your benefits.
“Education is the key to selecting a good Medicare health plan,” said Solazzo. “With easyMedicare.com, we’re making it easier for people to learn more about their Medicare plan options. We help you get the guidance you need from a knowledgeable, consultative, licensed agent who can help you make an informed, confident decision about your Medicare coverage.”
