Ohio seniors benefit from some of the lowest costs for Medicare insurance options.  Policy rates can vary as can available discounts according to an analysis by the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance (AAMSI).  The report shares information for Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati, the three largest metro areas.

"Ohio seniors turning 65 can benefit from some of the lowest Medigap costs in the nation," shares Jesse Slome, director of the Association.  "The lowest rate we found was $82.63 a year for a Cleveland female which compares to the lowest rate for a New York City woman who'd pay $190 for basically the same plan," he notes.  "Ohio seniors need to know that rates between the different insurance carriers can still vary significantly."

The 2020 survey reports the lowest and highest rates available in major Ohio metro areas.  "Consumers are not aware of the importance of comparing before signing on the dotted line," Slome notes.  "You might be making a decision that you can't easily change down the road."

The analysis of 2020 Medigap pricing examined rates for a 65-year-old purchasing Plan G.  According to the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance this is the most common Medigap choice for those turning 65 who opt for supplemental Medicare insurance coverage.

"The individual insurance companies each set their pricing," Slome notes.  "A smart consumer looks at price as well as discounts available, and the company's history of rate increases."
