Why eHealth Medicare

Since 2009, eHealth Medicare has worked with customers to find Medicare 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, Medicare Advantage plans may also include prescription drug coverage and additional benefits, like routine vision, dental, and hearing coverage.
  • Medicare prescription drug coverage: You can enroll in a stand-alone Medicare Prescription Drug Plan that can be added to your Original Medicare (Part A and Part B) coverage. Another way to get this coverage is to sign up for a Medicare Advantage Prescription Drug plan. Coverage details may vary from one plan to another.
  • Medicare Supplement Insurance Plans, 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 may be able to get help with deductible, premium, and copayment cost sharing, as well as emergency foreign travel coverage.

Finding Medicare coverage that works for you is an important goal for us. Our mission is to help everyone find affordable Medicare coverage through our website technology, consumer advocacy, and personalized customer assistance. If you're uncertain of what type of Medicare coverage would best suit your needs, don't hesitate to contact us.
