I have been researching this for months. The best source I have found is

They will take your personal information and, based on that information, will email you with more information including their recommendation for the plan that will best suit your needs. Many low income people automatically qualify for extra help, and they can help with their choices. There just is not very much specific information to help those people choose a plan. They also give plans available in your state, as they vary from state to state.

Also if you want to talk to a real person for more information, call 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227). When the answering machine asks a question, reply by pushing the 0perator button. After a few times of this, you will be connected with a real person who can answer a lot of your questions.
