We are EXTREMELY PLEASED to announce that Medicare Quote Engine (www.MedicareQuoteEngine.com) has been updated with ALL 2009 Medicare Advantage Plan data. We are in the testing phase at this point, so please be patient!
This means, that for 2009, we will have:
- 113,005 Medicare Advantage County/Plan combinations,
- 12,581 Special Needs Plan County/Plan combinations and
- 2,565 Stand Alone Part D Plan State/Plan combinations.
Essentially, you will be able to see every Medicare Advantage product that exists for 2009. Additionally, we are adding new query capabilities to allow you to retrieve the plan types you are looking for.
Due to this massive expansion, we had to change some of the displayed information. For those companies which we are contracted with, we will provide a link to the product page (https://ritterim.pbwiki.com/Ritter+2009+Medicare+Advantage+Products) for you to drill down and see very detailed product features. For those companies where we do not have contracts to market, we will not link or will simply link to their homepage.
We are hopeful that we will be able to provide additional details on plan design features for these 125,000+ combinations before the November 15th AEP season begins, however, we cannot be certain. In the meantime, you will have the resources to research your primary counties.
