The New Medicare Website is Great! Don’t Rely On It.

Medicare has rolled out an update to its website just in time for the open enrollment period.

 

It’s much more functional and gives you much more information than their previous websites.

 

It’ll be a great tool in selecting your Medicare Advantage plans.

 

The problem is that much of the information isn’t correct. Much is self-reported by the insurance companies—and the government’s ability to confirm its accuracy is a laughingly inadequate.

 

You can use it to narrow your search, but rely only on your own personal insurance agent and  your own personal “insurance home” to make your decision.
