Commonwealth Health announced the availability of a toll-free helpline designed to help Medicare beneficiaries select a health plan that fits their needs and budget.
The free helpline connects callers with licensed agents who can assist in comparing traditional Medicare, Medicare Advantage, Supplement and Prescription plans, and then facilitate enrollment in the plan selected. Through this program it will be easier for Medicare beneficiaries to find a plan that is best for them during Medicare annual enrollment from October 15th through December 7th. Licensed insurance agents are available at no cost or obligation to help consumers find a Medicare plan that meets their health care needs.
Local consumers can access the helpline at 855-583-2003, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. EDT, or online at www.medicarecompareusa.com.
MedicareCompareUSA is dedicated to helping consumers make this important insurance decision.
Not owned or managed by any Medicare insurance company, MedicareCompareUSA’s mission is to provide individuals the unbiased information they need while simplifying the enrollment process.
In addition to providing assistance throughout the plan application and enrollment process, agents of MedicareCompareUSA can provide an annual review of an enrollee’s Medicare coverage during Medicare’s enrollment period. This often includes assisting members affected by Medicare plan network changes that sometimes occur. Doing so assures that beneficiaries have the information they need to proactively select a plan that best meets their specific needs, preferences and budget.
Commonwealth Health is not in-network with all insurance options or health plans, and contractual relationships may change over time. If a patient enrolls with a health plan that does not include a Commonwealth Health hospital in the network, their care and relationships with their doctors could be affected.
Traditional Medicare and the Medicare Advantage plans offered by Aetna, Allwell, Geisinger, Highmark, Humana, Lasso, Vibra and United all allow consumers covered by these plans full access to in-network medical care and procedures at Commonwealth Health Hospitals and Commonwealth Health Physician Network.
