RETIREE HEALTH CHOICES DEVELOPS INNOVATIVE PERSONAL HEALTH CALCULATOR TO DRIVE COST MODELING FOR MEDICARE SUPPLEMENT INSURANCE SELECTION

 

Patent-Pending Online Tool Helps Medicare Enrollees Optimize Best Plan and Premium Price for More Informed Decisions to Estimate Total Cost

 

 CHICAGO (April 17, 2013) – Retiree Health Choices (RHC), a Chicago-based technology company, today announced development of a new online personal health calculator that will drive Medicare insurance cost modeling and optimize informed decisions for those seeking Medicare Supplement insurance.

 The personal health calculator is the engine behind EasyMedicareChoices.com, a consumer Medicare selection and purchase site under development by Retiree Health Choices. The new site is set to launch in mid-second quarter in Illinois, with plans to expand nationally. Retiree Health Choices is creating authoritative tools to help consumers make smarter and more balanced Medicare insurance decisions.

 “Retiree Health Choices is uniquely positioned to capitalize on three converging megatrends – the complex and increasing cost of Medicare, the tsunami of Baby Boomers enrolling in Medicare, and the increase in online purchasing,” said Dale Yamamoto, founder and president of Retiree Health Choices and author of Fundamentals of Retiree Group Benefits. “Our online technologies guide the Medicare Supplement insurance selection and purchase process to help consumers make the best Medicare decisions.”

 How The Calculator Works

 Visitors to EasyMedicareChoices.com input personal health information into the calculator, such as projected number of doctor visits in the coming year or scheduled procedures.  The calculator completes the math to provide a solid estimate. The calculator delivers total estimated annual cost including premiums, doctor visits, procedures, and more while guiding consumers toward the Medicare Supplement plan with the best overall fit for coverage and total cost.

  Since 2010, the Retiree Health Choices team has studied how to positively influence the Medicare insurance market with consumer-facing solutions that ease the complexity of how Medicare insurance is selected and purchased.
