The Trump administration is rolling out new online tools to help seniors compare the differences between traditional Medicare plans and those offered by private health insurance.
The latest installment to the Medicare.gov website, called eMedicare, has a new feature allowing beneficiaries to chat online with government staffers to ask questions as they are looking at their coverage options, rather than obligate them to go see someone in person or to make a phone call. It also has been changed for the first time to allow people to use it through their iPhones or iPads.
