  • Understanding Health Insurance
  • Understanding Medicare
  • How to Shop for Health Insurance
  • Plans for Different People (Identifying a User's stage-of-life and needs)
  • Making Insurance Work for You

"We tested this site extensively with our own members and other health care consumers," added Tikkanen. "More than 90 percent of users navigated the site with ease and trusted the information they received."
