Fidelis Care Expands Online Tool to Help Seniors Choose Medicare Coverage

Fidelis Affordable Care Advisor Compares Choices, Benefits, Costs

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - November 06, 2014) - With many choices and variables, selecting the right Medicare coverage can be difficult. Fidelis Care is making it simple, with help from the Fidelis Affordable Care Advisor.

Found on Fidelis Care's website, fideliscare.org, the Fidelis Affordable Care Advisor is an online calculator that now includes Medicare Advantage products. Seniors only need to enter basic personal information, and the Fidelis Affordable Care Advisor compares the benefits and costs of available products, along with the benefits and costs associated with Original Medicare. It also lets seniors know if they may qualify for income-based Dual Advantage products, where available. As a final step, it allows seniors to make an appointment to meet with a licensed Fidelis Care Medicare representative, if they choose.

"In just a few weeks, the Medicare feature of the Fidelis Affordable Care Advisor has been used hundreds of times," said Pamela Hassen, Chief Marketing Officer. "Seniors have been asking for an easy way to compare their options, figure out which product is most economical for their medical needs, and see how the coverage differs from Original Medicare. This tool gives them instant answers."

Fidelis Care unveiled the Fidelis Affordable Care Advisor last year to help residents plan for and estimate the costs of new insurance options offered through NY State of Health: The Official Health Plan Marketplace. The expansion to include Medicare Advantage products means people of all ages can now use the Fidelis Affordable Care Advisor to find out what health insurance options may be available to them, along with the associated costs, and make an appointment to meet with a representative.

Medicare open enrollment runs through December 7 for coverage in 2015.
