5. Scroll down to see your plan type choices and click on the plan type you are interested in. The choices are; Medicare Advantage with Prescription Drug Coverage, Prescription Drug Plans, Medicare Advantage Plans without Prescription Drug Coverage, and Medicare Supplements, (also known as Medigap or Medsup).


6. Scroll down a little further and you will see the list of available plans. You can sort them by; "Total Estimated Cost",  "Plan Premium",  or "Medicare Star Rating". Please note you may select up to three plans at a time to perform a side by side comparison that will highlight differences in yellow.



7. Please be aware that the "Total Estimated Cost" figures will be much more accurate if you "Add Your Drugs". This will help you select your Prescriptions, quantity, and frequency to get a more accurate "Total Estimated Cost" amount.

Everyone Should Have Dental and Vision Insurance

Individual dental and vision insurance is one of the most commonly requested items by Medicare beneficiaries and younger individuals. Unfortunately, Medicare does not cover routine dental procedures, such as fluoride treatments, fillings, extractions, crowns, root canals, and teeth cleaning or vision such as glasses and contacts. 

Medicare only covers dental and vision care for medically necessary reasons such as injury or damage to your jaw, cataract surgery or dental care related to radiation for oral cancer. For this reason, most people on Medicare choose to purchase an individual dental or vision insurance policy.

It is important to note that some Medicare Advantage policies have dental and vision benefits or dental discounts built in. There are other Medicare Advantage plans that offer a dental or vision add on rider you may purchase with a monthly premium. 

Individual dental and vision insurance plans vary in price and type. There are inexpensive dental HMO plans which often require you to use dental networks made up of franchise dental chains. It could be difficult to find your preferred dentist on one of their networks. Then, there are dental PPO options which offer a bit more flexibility but are also often a bit more expensive. 

There are also dental and vision savings plans that are not true insurance. These just offer discounts on any needed dental or vision services. Members pay an annual membership fee which allows them to pay discounted rates only at participating dental or vision providers at the time services are rendered. The small savings you might see from a discount plan probably is not worth the extra time it takes to shop for one.

Are there any dental and vision plans for seniors out there? You bet! Fortunately, we have many options for affordable dental and vision insurance for younger individuals and seniors alike. One of our favorite and most popular plans is the Ameritas PrimeStar Dental and Vision insurance policy. We have used their vision policy ourselves and are very happy clients.

RightFitPlans.com Medicare Insurance Plan Online Enrollment Platform

RightFitPlans.com, (Agents Legacy Group, LLC), recently launched a self-service, no cost, Do It Yourself Medicare enrollment platform for seniors. They currently serve Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado and New Mexico. Seniors can now compare, choose and enroll in Medicare insurance plans online without having to be tech savvy. Seniors eligible for Medicare may now enroll from wherever and whenever, (with a valid enrollment period), it is convenient for them. Using a home computer, tablet or phone they are now just a click away from enrolling in a Medicare insurance plan.

Medicare Supplement and Medicare Advantage Plans are necessary policies for seniors to consider. By helping policyholders pay for the various “gaps” (coinsurance fees, copayments, and deductibles) found in Original Medicare, a Medigap or a Medicare Advantage policy allows seniors to manage and secure their finances in a much more organized and cost conscious manner. Senior citizens now have the ability to educate themselves on the RightFitPlans.com enrollment system. Unlike most Medicare plan comparison sights their platform not only lets you compare and chose a plan, but, it also lets you fluidly enroll online in that plan as well.

By comparing Medicare Insurance plans and rates, seniors can find which insurance plan is the “right fit” plan for them. Rightfitplans.com is a Bedford Texas company that has launched an online platform to provide seniors with a way to do plan by plan comparisons, including prescription drugs, of Medicare insurance plans. This includes Medicare Advantage, Medigap, and Prescription Drug Plans. The website was designed to empower seniors by informing them of their options to go along with Medicare. This includes plans, pricing, and online enrollment.

Rightfitplans.com helps seniors find the “right fit” Medicare insurance plan for their lifestyle and budget. This Medicare plan will be responsible for helping them with their medical bills and medication costs. Senior citizens are more likely to have higher medical and medication costs. With those high costs comes the importance of making an informed decision. If they were to choose the wrong plan, it could potentially cost them hundreds or even thousands of dollars more a year. Choosing the plan that is the “right fit” will ultimately not just benefit their health but also their pocketbook as well.

Their plan comparison website makes it so easy to read and compare, it is easily understood. This makes their website better than competing sites and presents the information on the various rates and plan choices in a simple manner. Seniors can even compare plans and rates without having to make an account. There is no need to worry about them contacting you without your permission and they will not give out your information to anyone else. Clients using RightFitPlans.com online enrollment platform can be their own agent.

Rightfitplans.com is there to assist by providing seniors with relevant and updated Medicare insurance plans and pricing. Along the way, if someone needs assistance they have experienced, licensed, Agents standing by on the phones. These professional Agents will help, guide and answer any questions a client has. If a client prefers to enroll the old fashioned paper and ink way, with their permission, they will go over the information over the phone and mail out an enrollment kit with directions and a return addressed postage paid envelope. They are just a toll-free phone call away.

Again, all these services are provided to seniors at no cost. The insurance carriers compensate them when someone enrolls in a plan they offer.

For Medicare insurance plan inquiries, pricing, and enrollment visit rightfitplans.com or call toll-free (888) 457-1794.
