Compare Medicare coverage and costs to find the right fit for you.
You may have many Medicare coverage choices available to you, including Original Medicare and private Medicare plans.
Medicare Plan Finder Worksheet
The Medicare Plan Finder Worksheet can help you compare different Medicare coverage choices side by side. Here are some tips for comparing plans.
Get current plan information.
Most companies put plan information on their websites. Many have online tools to help you find plans that may fit your needs.
You may also want to talk directly to plan representatives or a local insurance agent to get more information about the plans you're interested in.
You can review coverage choices or see examples now, if you need a refresher.
Compare Medicare Costs
Plans have their own cost-sharing terms and conditions.
You may want to estimate what your costs would be with each plan or combination of plans you're considering.
Create a scenario or take a situation from your own health care experience and compare what you would pay with each coverage choice.
Some things to consider are:
- Monthly plan premiums
- Annual medical deductible
- Annual out-of-pocket maximum
- Emergency care costs
- Annual pharmacy deductible
- Prescription drug costs
Find Plans Where You Live
Each private plan has a service area where it operates. The plans available where you live may be different from what’s available to a friend or relative living elsewhere.
You can get a list of plans in your area at Medicare.gov. You can also call the Medicare Helpline at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227), TTY 1-877-486-2048, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You may also view plans offered in your area by UnitedHealthcare®.
