Greetings,

My question relates to my desire to use a spreadsheet to compare various Medicare health plans – and I thought this group might have some ideas.

Background.

I’ve gone to Medicare.gov to obtain information about available Medicare health plans – and I find the site helpful in that regard.
I have been able to navigate to a page that permits comparison of various Medicare health plans – with the option to compare up to three plans at a time.

I did, indeed, use the comparison tool for three Medicare health plans – and am happy to say the results were laid out in a table with rows and columns just as one would hope to find. I then looked for an option to export the table to an Excel sheet – but didn’t see/find an export button on that page.

I did find a link on a separate page within Medicare.gov permitting the download of information. However, I hesitated about using that download link as I thought it might download much more info than I want (read: would take too much space to download, and too much time to message the info to get it to show/format only the info I want to see).

I went back to the page with the table-formatted comparison results of the three Medicare health plans. I did try selecting the information from the table, and copied/pasted that information into an Excel spreadsheet – and yes, that could work for getting the information I need into an Excel sheet. But I was hoping for something a little less time consuming – particularly as there are about 60 different medicare health plans I eventually would like to get into a spreadsheet – and I if there is a quicker method, I’d like to use it.

Question.

So, I thought I would write to see if anyone has ideas on how I might get Medicare health plan information into a spreadsheet in a more efficient manner than my select/copy/paste method – or maybe there’s already such a spreadsheet out there somewhere?

Thank you.
