    Union members, retirees and their families can now easily search and shop for Medicare plans using eHealth’s recommendation tool or by speaking to an eHealth licensed insurance agent. You have the option to find plans in your area online, compare plans and select one based on monthly premium, annual deductible, as well as copayments and coinsurance for various services.
