Medicare Site Has Faulty Tool, Avoid Misinformation With EZ

Looking for Medicare quotes? Did you use Medicare’s Plan Finder Tool on their site, If so, you could’ve been given the wrong information, which could be costing you hundreds of dollars. The Medicare Plan Finder tool had some bugs that needed to be fixed, so, in August, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) updated it. However, the tool is currently still  giving seniors incorrect price estimates, and wrong coverage information. You don’t have to worry about that with EZ. We give you accurate quotes, every time.

The misinformation the tool provides can lead Medicare beneficiaries to lose a lot of money.

The Problem With The Tool

Even with the August revamp, Medicare beneficiaries have been just as confused as ever. The tool has been showing inaccurate premium estimates, incorrect prescription drug costs, and inaccurate coverage costs. Beneficiaries are at risk of choosing the wrong coverage because of this inaccurate information. They will then be stuck with this plan for the entire year, and will be losing money while they wait for the next open enrollment period.

One Medicare consultant in Wisconsin used the tool to research prescription drug plans for a client, and was shocked by the results. She started checking the plans’ websites, and came across two versions of the same high blood pressure medication. One was covered, while the other was not. The difference in price was $2,700 a month.
