With one of the most trusted names in senior insurance, an AARP Medicare supplemental plan is a good choice. Founded by Ethel Percy Andrus, AARP started helping seniors in 1958. The company’s headquarters is in Washington, DC and they have over 40 million people with an AARP membership.
In most states, there are ten different AARP Medicare supplemental insurance plans. These plans cover the gaps left by Medicare Part A and Part B health insurance. Since Medicare supplements are highly regulated, you will get the same exact coverage no matter which company you go with. You can find out more about the different Medicare supplemental plans here.
AARP Medicare Supplemental Rates
Many different factors determine AARP Medicare supplemental plan rates. The plans that offer the most coverage will be more expensive. Other factors including what part of the country you live in, as well as the age and health of the person needing coverage affect the cost as well. If you are about to turn 65, or have just gone on Medicare, then you are in a special period called the Medicare supplement Open Enrollment Period. This enrollment period lasts six months after you turn 65 and start using Medicare Part B. During this time, if you sign up for any of the Medicare supplemental (Medigap) plans you will not have to go through underwriting.
The best way to know what your rates will be is to get a set of custom quotes. You can do that by filling out the form on the side of this page or on our page for Medicare supplement quotes here. Not only can you get a quote for an AARP Medigap plan, but you can compare those rates to other Medicare supplemental insurance companies that offer plans in your area.
Amount of Coverage
All Medicare supplemental insurance companies offer the same coverage with whatever plan you choose. The advantage to an AARP Medicare supplement is that you know you are working with a quality company. Many times they are also the least expensive of the companies available in your area.
If you are looking for other companies that provide Medigap plans we recommend Mutual of Omaha Medicare supplements. They have been around almost as long as AARP, and have a stellar reputation. Of all the Medicare supplemental insurance companies out there, AARP and Mutual of Omaha are by far the largest. For more information on other Medicare supplemental insurance companies, click here.
