When Retiree Health Choices’ new site EasyMedicareChoices.com launches in the next several months, there will be an innovative personal health calculator driving the engine of that website.

What that means is consumers interested in comparing Medicare Supplement plans can use the personal health calculator to better understand total estimated annual cost of plans, premiums and more.

Retiree Health Choices, a Chicago-based technology company, is creating new online tools to help Medicare-eligible adults make more informed decisions about their future health care and insurance needs.

“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.
