Do you have Medicare supplement plan F and your renewal premium is out of sight? You are not alone. Even newspapers are reporting about seniors complaining about Medicare supplement plan rate increases. From the Tucson Citizen:
“Some Medigap plans offered by United of Omaha will see premium increases around 40% next year”.
Seniors on a fixed income can’t afford that.
In some cases the rate increase on Medicare supplement plan F is more than with other plans.
Did you know the Medicare Part B deductible (paid by Medigap plan F) actually went DOWN in 2012 yet premiums for plan F went up?
Don’t you think your Medigap carrier should give you a break?
Some Medicare supplement plan carriers purposely offer low rates to seniors turning 65 and then raise those rates by 15% or more every year thereafter.
Also, most Medigap carriers and insurance agents routinely push plan F as your best option. The truth is, most seniors would be better off with Medicare supplement plan G or plan N and the savings can be tremendous.
In many cases you can switch to plan G and save $250 ore more vs. plan F. Changing to a lower priced carrier other than Blue Cross or Mutual of Omaha can save you even more.
Did you know that some agents will only show Medigap rates from Blue Cross or Mutual of Omaha and will never tell you there are identical plans from other Medicare supplement plan carriers that could save you a lot of money?
BCBSGA is a well known carrier but you don’t have to pay their high premium to get a good policy. Mutual of Omaha pays a much higher commission so many agents will only present something that helps them more than it helps you.
Are you interested in finding the best Medicare supplement plan premium or making sure you agent makes more money?
One Georgia Medicare supplement plan carrier recently cut the agent commission in half so many agents have already decided they will no longer tell seniors about this carrier.
