Which Medicare Supplement Insurance Company Is the Best?

Which Medicare Supplement Insurance Company Is the Best?

When shopping for a Medicare Supplement plan, there are dozens of different companies to choose from. How do you know which Medicare Supplement insurance company is the best?

Medicare Supplement Plan Benefits Are the Same From Company to Company

To start things off, you need to know that all Medicare Supplement plans are standardized by the government. That means a Plan G is a Plan G, regardless of which company you buy it from.

For example, if you compare a Plan G from Aetna with a Plan G from Mutual of Omaha, the only difference between the two is the premium you pay. The benefits are exactly the same, which makes price shopping a lot simpler.

Compare Underwriting, or Health Questions

The only other difference between companies is their underwriting, or the health questions they ask when you apply for coverage.

This won’t affect you if you’re signing up for Medicare for the first time, because you don’t have to answer those health questions. However, if you want to switch coverage later on, you will need to go through underwriting.

We will help you determine which companies are the best for you based on your health conditions or prescription drug list.

How to Choose the Best Medicare Supplement Company

When we are looking for the best Medicare Supplement company for you, we’re mostly looking at who has the best rate in your area. Rates are different in each zip code, and your age also impacts the pricing. A 65-year-old has a lower rate than a 70-year-old, for example.

So, in sum, there’s really no “best” company. But there is a “best” company for you. Your most competitive Medicare Supplement will depend on your zip code, your age, and possibly your health if you need to answer health questions to apply for coverage.
