Why eHealth?

about-us

As a division of eHealth, Inc., eHealth Medicare is the leading provider of unbiased educational materials and comparison tools for Medicare insurance products.

eHealth Medicare provides a free, easy-to-use online advisor tool that lets Medicare beneficiaries compare the prices and benefits of Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplement, and Medicare Part D plans. We have researched and compiled thousands of Medicare plans into an easy-to-use, objective plan-comparison tool to help you determine the right plan for you and also identify potential savings. Our plan tool is obligation-free, meaning you're under no requirement to purchase insurance through us if you use it.

Since 2009, eHealth Medicare has worked with customers to find Medicare health coverage that is offered through private insurance companies that contract with Medicare. eHealth can help you explore and compare any of these types of optional plans:

Medicare Advantage, or Medicare Part C: These plans offer an alternative way to get your Original Medicare, Part A and Part B, benefits. Unlike Original Medicare, Part C plans may also include drug coverage and additional benefits, like routine vision, dental, and hearing coverage.

Medicare prescription drug coverage: You can buy this as a stand-alone prescription drug plan that can be added to your Original Medicare, Part A and Part B, insurance. Another way to get this coverage is to sign up for a Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan. Each Medicare drug plan includes a formulary, or a list of covered drugs. Coverage details may vary from one plan to another. While this coverage is optional, if you don't get Medicare prescription drug coverage when you're first eligible, and you decide you need it later on, you could have to pay a late enrollment penalty.

Medicare Supplement Insurance, also called Medigap: These policies are sold by private insurance companies to fill in some of the "gaps" in Original Medicare, Part A and Part B, coverage. Depending on the plan, you can get help with deductible, premium, and copayment cost-sharing, as well as foreign travel coverage.

Finding Medicare coverage that works for you is an important goal for us, and it doesn't have to be an intimidating process. Our mission is to help everyone find affordable Medicare coverage through our leading technology, far-reaching partnerships, consumer advocacy, and industry expertise. If you're uncertain of what type of Medicare insurance would best suit your needs, don't hesitate to contact us.
