Getting paid on a United Healthcare/AARP Medicare supplement wouldn't be a problem. Whatever Medicare approves, the supplement has to pay their share; that is the rule. As far as price, like anything else, you need to shop around. Every supplement will pay the same, no matter who the company is, but the premiums can be wildly different.

AARP is a senior advocacy group as well as a marketing umbrella under which selected companies offer goods and services to its members. We've had a very good experience with United Healthcare. Have never used Hartford for homeowners or renter's insurance. Costco also operates as a marketing umbrella and offers various insurances to its members, so you might get a renter's quote from them.

AARP recommends insurance plans but actually has nothing to do with administering them, right?

I, Too. Would endorse AARP Supplemental plan "F" if you can get it and afford it. I have SSDI, so i have Medicare.
I pay about $200/,month in my area and state to have it.

I NEVER see a bill at all, and i have several medical conditions, doctors and whatnot. So to me it is worth tte $2400/ yr to have it. Id spend way more than thst in copays or other bills.

As for prescription coverage, i have Express Scripts. Again i pay little, but my hospitals pharmacy has an income based patient coverage plan to cover the copays on Scripts. A family of 4 can earn up to $94k and still get a discount on copays for scripts, so it is not that low an income threshold. I have 18 regular scripts.

So between Medicare, AARP Supplemental and Express Scripts coupled with patient financial help plan, i basically pay NOTHING for anything to do with health care.

Ive also had NO problems with AARP , BUT HAVE with Medicare, lol!!

I have had no issues with the AARP United plan F paying. They are very prompt.


What I am upset about is that they said they are terminating Silver Sneakers on Jan.1. I used that benefit and am not happy about this. It was saving me about $60/month in health club dues to use a heated pool in the winter. That makes the plan look a lot more expensive to me.

Correct. Through United Healthcare.

Edit: I believe a call to the 800 number will get you to someone at AARP for general questions.
If you were to have questions on a claim, an 800 number to UHC is provided on the back of your insurance card.

I think so, but not 100% sure. Their name appears on things. When I created a login for my mother's United Healthcare supplement, the website is: myaarpmedicare.com Maybe this is to differentiate between customers who aren't members of AARP and buy other insurance from United Healthcare, or maybe AARP generates revenue from maintaining the website. But all insurance matters, claims, etc are through United Healthcare.

Another thread in the Health Insurance sub forum. Some helpful info here:
//www.city-data.com/forum/healt...count-uhc.html

AARP is a pass through to UHC, and is compensated in some way. Read the disclaimer @ AARP.

My wife and I just got a Plan G Medigap (supplement - don't be confused by the different name - they are the same thing) w/UHC through AARP. Very easy process.
