When we turned 65 we went with AARP Supplemental Plan C. You probably know Plan C or whichever plan you use is the SAME regarding the company you go with. It is a good idea to compare the price of Plan C or A, B, etc with a number of companies. We found some companies may have A,C,D, or B and D. Not all companies offer all plans. We wanted a plan without a deductible. AARP has served us well.We had no problems at all getting our doctor and hospital bills paid.

Bottom line is, select your plan. Then compare prices of this plan with a few companies.

We are with United Healthcare through AARP, it was suggested by my doctor's office as one of the best. There is a little too much of bureaucracy inside AARP, but you has to adjust to it. One interesting thing we found out: The same plan (J) cost in NY $250.00 but in Florida is only $150.00 each person.
We did find a problem with the prescription plan (through AARP too), it is a mess. To get my first order of three medications and a supply of lancets and test strips (for diabetes) it took me about 10 phone calls and a lot of red tape. And anyway I had to pay in full for me medications, something I still have to solve with them.

Efrahin, You're right about location making a difference. When we signed up with AARP United in Tampa we paid one price. We have an automatic deduction from our checking account. After we moved to The Villages, we were pleasantly surprised to see we were paying less than in Tampa.
