Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. This is the time of year when millions of people eligible for Medicare…try to sort through the blitz of mailbox, online and television ads to choose health coverage for the coming year. The options can be confusing…to say the least. A tech company called Chapter, at www.getchapter.com, is providing seniors with a way to get online unbiased comparisons…including consultations…for free. Founder Cobi Gantz says while the company does receive compensation from insurers, advisors are kept in the dark…
“So our advisors aren’t subconsciously pointing people to plans that earn higher commissions. We often guide people to think about how they should think about speaking to an independent advisor and the questions they should ask people.”
We found at least one advisor to be straightforward and helpful. The site again is www.getchapter.com.
