With the bWell-informed Health Plan Forecaster, Medicare shoppers can compare and enroll in many types of coverage
NEW YORK, Nov. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The day after Thanksgiving is traditionally the first day of the holiday shopping rush. For seniors and their families who need to explore their Medicare options, there's no better time to "shop" for coverage using the award-winning bWell-informed(TM) Health Plan Forecaster (www.bwell-informed.com). New functionality has recently been added to allow Medicare shoppers to compare and enroll in a variety of Medicare plans, including Medicare Part D (PDP), Medicare Advantage plus Part D (MAPD) and Medicare Advantage.
"The open enrollment window in 2008 closes on December 31," warns bWell-informed CEO and Founding Principal Philip Micali. "Those who are looking for Medicare coverage should avoid the post-Thanksgiving rush in the stores and visit www.bwell-informed.com to understand their options."
The Medicare enrollment pathways are a powerful enhancement to the bWell-informed(TM) Health Plan Forecaster, which is a free health insurance comparison resource for individuals, families, and small businesses seeking health, life, dental insurance and prescription drug coverage. The tool allows a user to project costs associated with his or her unique health risks and select the most appropriate individual health plan option based on those risks.
"We are very excited to provide Medicare coverage options to our users," said bWell CEO and Founding Principal Philip Micali. "With our tool, people can get their financial house in order and 'rightsize' their insurance. Our tool lets everyone feel more confident in purchasing coverage, so they can buy health insurance instead of having health insurance sold to them."
