Advantages to Gerber Medicare Supplemental Plans
With all Medicare supplemental plans, you get the same coverage regardless of which company select. For example, if you are looking at Plan F with one company and then look at a Plan F at another company, you can feel secure knowing you would get the same coverage with both plans. You are only comparing two things: price and company reputation. Gerber has a competitive price in a variety of states. With their name, you know they are a company you can trust.
The best indicator of reliability for any of the companies that provide Medicare supplements is the A.M. Best rating. This is a rating system for all insurance companies. A.M. Best Rating gives each company a letter grade rating for the financial health of the company. Gerber has an A.M. Best rating of A. It is the second highest rating you can get.
Gerber Medicare supplemental plans work directly with Medicare. This is another advantage of working with Gerber. Instead of working with an insurance company, a Gerber Medicare supplement works with any place that accepts Medicare. Each of the ten plans is a little bit different.

Disadvantages of a Gerber Medicare Supplement
While a Medicare Advantage plan has one premium, a person on traditional Medicare with a Gerber Medicare supplemental plan will have multiple premiums. You will pay a Medicare Part B premium, a Medicare supplement premium, and if you have a prescription drug plan, a Medicare Part D premium. However, all of these together create the most comprehensive coverage you can acquire. For some people, the hassle of paying three different premiums outweighs the benefit of comprehensive coverage.
Gerber Medicare Supplement Rates
With all Medicare supplemental plans, the health and age of the applicant determines the monthly premium. However, when you first enroll in Medicare Part B, you have a six month open enrollment period where there is no medical underwriting.
