Understanding Getting Started

The Plan Advisor is a series of questions that can be used to highlight the plans that best fit the selections you make.  The Plan Advisor will not recommend a single plan but can prioritize those that best fit your preferences.

This Plan Advisor can help you find a Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island (BCBSRI) Medicare plan that meets your needs.
