AARP Medicare Supplement Insurance

I'm starting Medicare in a couple of months and am exploring Medigap supplemental plans (not Advantage plans.) Does anyone have experience with the Medigap insurance from AARP United? They've sent me an application, and the premium isn't bad for Plan G. Thanks in advance.

I think there are counselors you can go through that will help decide which supplement plan is best for you, but I don't have personal experience with it. My husband is on a Medicare Advantage plan through my state retirement system and I'm not old enough to get Medicare yet.

My husband and I both have AARP Medigap plan G. He has lots of medical issues and multiple specialists. We have had no problems, and coverage is great. He has had the AARP Medigap plan for 7 years. I have had it for 2 1/2 years since I retired.

I have it and it has been fine.

Do you plan to get a prescription plan as well?

I appreciate the responses. Yes, I will be getting a prescription plan part D as well. My husband has Mutual of Omaha as his medigap plan G and Silverscript for Part D. He has very few prescriptions. I have quite a few, so may need to go with a plan that covers more drugs.

Hes been fine with Mutual of Omaha, but Id read that the AARP plan was also good, and its premium for plan G seemed reasonable. Id wondered if it went up significantly over time.

I have Aetna as my insurance along with Medicare. I used an insurance broker to help me with finding my best plan.

I have Medicare Advantage plan so can't share experiences.

I would second the consult a broker advise. I suggest perhaps trying more than one and going in with a list of your current conditions and medications and any procedures that may be coming up based on your conditions.

My state benefits program subscribes to an agency that offers such guidance, does yours? That would be a place to start if available.

Based on my experiences over the years, I'd also suggest actually checking out the Advantage plan(s) in your area, if available. We've had excellent coverage from them.

AARP, Plan G

I have use AARP, plan G. I got it about 3 years ago It's been great, no problems at all. Just make sure they accept the doctors, hospitals, and places where you will go for medical care.

AARP have handled their endorsed plans for many years, so all the kinks are already worked out.
