The benefits of purchasing AARP Medicare supplemental insurance include good company ratings, solid reputation and a wide range of benefits for AARP members. Medicare supplemental insurance plans are purchased from private insurance companies.
AARP is considered a strong insurer. Major insurance company rating agencies such as Fitch and Standards & Poor?s have rated AARP favorably over the years. Ratings from these agencies are largely based on the insurance company?s ability to pay claims and its financial strength.
AARP has been in the field for more than 50 years, and has developed a good reputation over time. Volunteers and employees are expected to follow a strict code of conduct, enabling the company to be held in high regard by business-related entities and consumers.
AARP members receive discounts on financial products and services, travel, groceries and cellphone plans. The company also provides members with budget and spending tools that are easy to use, which are available on the company?s websites.
There are also no network restrictions for members because AARP membership offers easy access to doctors who accept Medicare patients. Reviewing a plan is also relatively easy, and a plan offers eligible persons access to medical care all over the United States.
Purchasing a policy involves choosing the best one, obtaining a quote and completing an application for coverage.
