Seniors turning 65 this year across Alabama cities are being urged to compare Medicare insurance policies in order to save money.  Medigap insurance premiums, associated fees and available discounts across Alabama vary according to new data reported by the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance (AAMSI).

"In Birmingham a 65-year-old man could pay as little as $124 monthly or he could pay as much as $256 for Medicare Supplement coverage," shares Jesse Slome, director of the national organization.  "The coverage would be essentially identical but over time the cost difference adds.  That's why we analyze Medicare insurance costs and strongly advocate consumers do some comparison shopping."

The Medicare insurance expert notes other benefits that benefit seniors who compare policy options and costs.  "Some insurance companies add policy fees.  Others offer discounts for two-person households.  The household discounts vary from zero to as high as 14 percent in Alabama," AAMSI reports.

The latest Price Index reports both the lowest and highest insurance rates for Plan G.  "Medicare Plan G is the most popular choice among seniors turning 65," Slome explains.
