About Us

ExplainMedicare.com was created for one reason only: To provide information and assistance to those folks who are about to enter Medicare and are confused by the massive amounts of information they are receiving in the mail. For these folks, it seems as though every day, there's more stuff in the mail having to do with their upcoming Medicare eligibility. Many of those peices of mail are legitimate correspondence from either the Social Security Administration or CMS (Medicare), but most are just sales pieces from insurance companies. The problem for many folks is that there are so many plans out there from so many insurance companies that the task of evaluating each of those plans and choosing the right one seems daunting. Depending on your particular health needs and budget, one of those available plans may clearly be better than the others, and our goal is to help you evaluate the plans available to you and ensure that you choose the one that will best serve your needs.

However, while the information may be free, we're certain you will find it immensely valuable as you move along in the process of selecting the best possible coverage to go along with your Medicare A&B.
