I couldn't agree more. I have reported each call to www.fcc.gov as harassing calls after telling them to stop calling. Between this and the absolutely horrible service from United Healthcare, I have switched my Medicare plan. I have never dealt with such an unethical health insurance company in my life. The ony reason I am a member of AARP is because of the Medicare insurance I receive due to a permanent injury, since I am ony 40 years old. I am willing to drop AARP and its benefits just because of the poor decision they made in choosing United Healthcare as their branded health insurance. When I do become old enough to join, I will have to consider it carefully because of the insufficient effort put forth in deciding which company to use to offer healthcare for its members. I have filed complaints about them to Medicare and the state insurance commissioner. AARP should be embarrassed to associate themselves with United Healthcare.

This caught my eye as area code 443 is one where I live.  Altho I don't have aarp United Healthcare insurance,  I looked this up and it appears it is an obnovious telemarketer, is used by many insurance companies,  not just UHC,  and is given a high spam rating.   So the calls are not technically coming from United Healthcare,  they are just the cause indirectly.    

 

Lots and lots of complaints about it.   I can't figure out just what they are selling  though (?)

In Response to Re: I am sick of all these phone calls, UNITED HEALTHCARE:
ttIn Response to I am sick of all these phone calls, UNITED HEALTHCARE : The insurers are corporations and take a write-off  for advertising and telephone calls plus mailouts and TV is advertising. We have a for-profit system of healthcare... afraid of "socialism" although other countries like Norway, Germany, Austria, Austrailia etc. etc. have had   successful capitalism and generous social benefits for years.

I agree 100%! What I found particularly disconcerting about the call I received today is that it was quite obviously coming from a very busy call center outside the United States. So we're farming out or Medicare plans now too. It is bad enough to consider how much of our economy has been shiiped to overseas labor, but now our private health information!? Where does it end. Employ Americans! Not only are they easier to understand, but if our information is mishandled, at least they are in our country for prosecution. How this is economical, or more cost-effective, I do not know. It is absolutely shameful.
