Pre-2010 Medicare.gov - Find and Compare Plans
***Archive: Below is the Pre-2010 Medicare.gov Tutorial***
We will begin by clicking on "Find and Compare Plans" --The text provided by Medicare explains that this search tool does not include Medicare Health Plans that do not cover drugs (or Medicare Advantage plans without a prescription benefit -- MA), Original Medicare Plan, and Medigap Policies (or Medicare Supplement Policies).
The other options on this page are:
Go directly to the enrollment module -- remember, enrolling through Medicare.gov costs just the same as enrolling through an agent or directly with the plan provider.
Please keep in mind that if you enroll through Medicare.gov or directly with the plan provider, you do not have an agent who you can call if you have problems or need help. You are responsible to call the plan provider customer service if you have problems.
"View Your Current Plan":
See details about your current plan. You will be asked to enter your social security number on the next screen.
You will be shown a list of plans, along with their deductible, premium, and contact information for your county.
