Best Medicare insurance information from the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance

Best Medicare insurance information from the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance

A woman turning 65 in Iowa can purchase a comprehensive Medigap insurance plan for $79-per month. If she lives in New York City, comparable coverage costs $278 according to a report just published by the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance (AAMSI).

"Medicare is a national program but Medicare plan options are local," explains Jesse Slome, director of the organization. AAMSI has just published the 2023 Medigap Price Index for Plan G coverage. The report reflects the lowest rate found in each state.

According to AAMSI data, Plan G is the option selected by 51% of seniors purchasing Medicare Supplement (Medigap) coverage when they turn 65.

"There might be just a few insurance companies offering Medigap plans or as many as 20 depending on where you live," Slome notes. "Prices can vary significantly because while plan provisions are virtually identical, each company gets to charge what they want. It's up to seniors to compare before making a final selection."

While the lowest priced Plan G policy in Iowa cost $78.65-per-month, the most expensive is $192.09. "In Manhattan (New York) the cheapest monthly premium was $278.25 but the most expensive is $476.04," Slome shares.

No insurance company was always the least expensive according to Slome. "Neither was one consistently the most expensive." In addition, insurance companies may offer discounts that can save seniors when both spouses or partners are covered.
