Is AARP United Healthcare Medicare supplimental insurance as bad as the customer reviews say??

Message 61 of 61 (5,586 Views)

AARP's Medicare Supplemental Medicare Insurance sounds great... but I decided that before I purchase it I should read the reviews.

I was astounded!


Consumer affairs reviews were the worst I have EVER seen for any product or service from any company. People were talking about outright misrepresentation of services, copays, non-existent customer service. Representatives simply hanging up on customers, drug formularies not covering many common medications. Increasing co-pays. A litany of misrepresentation and worse.

Now I understand the Internet. You will always find people more willing to badmouth a product or service than to praise it... but I looked for positive reviews and found none...


Is it really this bad? If so why does AARP tolerate this if they are, as they claim, an organization that exists to promote the best interests of senior citizens?


Have I simply been looking for reviews of AARP United Healthcare supplemental insurance in the wrong places?


Can anyone here describe their own experience with this insurance? I live in California... but will be moving to Arizona...


If not AARP/UHC insurance, can anyone here recommend a company for Medicare supplemental insurance with which they have had a positive experience?
