Wouldn’t it be great if there were a comprehensive, easy-to-use online resource that asks you some questions and then recommends the Medicare plans that are best for you? And wouldn’t it be even more amazing if that online tool told you exactly how much your prescriptions will cost under each of those plans?
Boy, would it ever.
Enter CoverRight’s Medicare Plan Finder
The good news is, that an online tool exists, and you can use it right now. It’s CoverRight’s Medicare Plan Finder.
There’s really no need to give you instructions here on how to use it. It’s so simple and intuitive, that you can just jump in and in minutes, you will be comparing plans that are matched to you, your budget, your care preferences needs, and more.
But okay, here’s a quick summary of how the CoverRight Medicare Plan Finder works.
- You visit the site and answer some very basic questions about your age, and whether you smoke – nothing surprising, and it only takes a minute.
- You then answer some questions about what you would like in a plan. Are you willing to pay a bit more every month for comprehensive coverage, for example, or do you want to stick to the basics? Are you okay with using a network of plan-affiliated health care providers if that lowers costs, or are you willing to pay more to go outside the network? And how important are extra benefits like dental, vision, or hearing coverage, to you?
- The Medicare Plan Finder then suggests whether a Medicare Supplement Plan (Medigap) or a Medical Advantage Plan best suits your preference.
- The Medicare Plan Finder next suggests specific plans for you to consider, with specific monthly costs.
And Now the Medicare Plan Finder Gets Even More Helpful
You enter the names of prescription drugs you take and see how much the recommended plans will cost to cover them.
If you are taking prescription medications, you will see exactly how much each plan listed will pay every month for them and whether there are generic alternatives available that can save you money. You will also see a side-by-side comparison of the drug coverage provided by different plans.
You kind of have to see it to believe it.
Why CoverRight’s Medicare Plan Finder Is the Fastest Way to Find the Best Medicare Plan for You
I was trying to find a Medicare Supplement or Medicare Advantage plan that would pay the most for the prescription drugs I take.
So I called my current Medicare PPO plan and asked about my prescriptions, one by one. First, how much did my plan pay for my prescription for Farxiga? Next, I asked about Multaq and my other prescriptions. The representative took about five minutes to investigate each of them. I got the answers, but it took 45 minutes.
I then called another Medicare plan provider and asked the same questions. That took another 45 minutes. Then I called a third company.
You get the idea. I was going to have to invest hours to check out my prescription costs at four or five different plans.
Then I logged onto CoverRight’s Medicare Plan Finder and had the same answers to all my questions in about 10 minutes. I even found out that at least one of my prescriptions could be swapped for a lower-cost equivalent generic drug. Nobody at the plans I called even mentioned that.
Was I happy? You bet I was. Was I happy with CoverRight’s Medicare Plan Finder? You bet I was. And I am sure you will be too.

There is no obligation to use the plans recommended by the Medicare Plan Finder. And there is no obligation to speak with a CoverRight Medicare consultant to learn more about the plans that the Finder has identified for you.
But I have a feeling that after you experience what the CoverRight Medicare Plan Finder can do for you, you are going to want to talk things through in greater detail with a CoverRight Medicare Concierge.
