The partnership also offers: 

  • Seamless Integration: Using Healthpilot's no-cost platform, customers can pull in their health records with just a click to deliver a complete needs assessment and the best recommendation.
  • Accessible Information: Albertsons and Healthpilot are dedicated to providing comprehensive support, empowering individuals with the tools and resources needed to confidently choose their Medicare coverage.

"We are pleased to work with Healthpilot to enhance our customers' Medicare plan enrollment experience," said Irina Pelphrey, VP of health at Albertsons. "By providing accessible information and tailored recommendations, we are simplifying the process and empowering our customers to make confident decisions about their health care coverage. For too long, customers have not had transparent information when trying to compare their Medicare plan options and were forced to speak to a salesperson — Healthpilot fixes that."

Seth Teich, CEO of Healthpilot, said: "Our collaboration with Albertsons reflects our commitment to provide broad access to our industry leading Medicare platform. We are thrilled to work together to enable Albertson's customers to easily evaluate and enroll in the right Medicare plans for their needs."
