CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - November 10, 2010) -, the online service for seniors to compare Medicare Advantage, Medicare Supplement and Medicare Part D plans, is advising seniors to compare their Medicare insurance options this open enrollment season.

By using the services at, seniors can compare Medicare Advantage plans to find one that has the benefits and price that fits their budget.

Open enrollment begins on November 15, 2010 and ends on December 31, 2010, giving seniors plenty of time to talk to a licensed health insurance agent to get expert advice about their Medicare options.

"Every senior has different Medicare and health care needs that change over time. It makes sense to work with a trusted advisor to compare plans and make sure that you're making the best decision for your health and budget needs," said Michael Mahoney, Vice President of Consumer Marketing at

Medicare Advantage plans differ from original Medicare plans because the benefits are administered through private insurance companies rather than the federal government. Many seniors are choosing Medicare Advantage plans because of their customizability and additional benefits.

Many times, private insurers offer extra coverage for certain medical services while complying with federal regulations on minimum benefits requirements. During open enrollment, which occurs at the end of every calendar year, seniors will be able to change, upgrade or switch to a different Medicare plan without penalty.
