Allsup Helps Coordinate Medicare for Employees and Retirees

July 22, 2009 ( - Allsup announced it is expanding its Medicare services for employers with the addition of the Allsup Medicare Advisor service.

According to the announcement, the new service “helps employers more effectively and efficiently coordinate Medicare coverage for employees and retirees.” Allsup Medicare Advisor is not a Medicare plan provider, but guides individuals in choosing the Medicare plan (from supplemental to Part D to Medicare Advantage plans) that best fits their personal circumstances.

Allsup works with each company to understand its needs and the needs of their employees transitioning to Medicare.

Employees receive live, one-on-one guidance from Allsup Medicare experts, a plan report and analysis, and the convenience of Internet features, the announcement said. The Allsup Medicare Advisor works with each employee to collect detail on health care needs and preferences, including prescription drugs, preferred physicians and scheduled procedures.

Each employee will have their own online account, including access to their personalized report, news, and information about Medicare and other health care topics.

The service also may incorporate information from an employer health care plan to provide employees with a reference point for making comparisons with available Medicare options.
