Washington state seniors turning 65 are advised there are benefits of comparing Medicare insurance policies.  While companies charge men and women the same, rates between insurers can vary significantly.  That's the findings of the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance (AAMSI) which has reported costs for Seattle, Spokane and Tacoma.

"In Seattle a woman turning 65 could pay as little as $182 monthly or as much as $220 for basically identical coverage," shares Jesse Slome, director of the Association.  "Washington couples should know that added fees may also vary.  So do discounts for two-person households, from zero to as high as seven percent."

The Association's 2020 Medicare Supplement Price Index reports the lowest and highest insurance rates for Plan G.  "Currently many favor Plan G as the most popular choice among seniors turning 65," Slome explains.  "Our survey is intended to educate more consumers about the importance of comparing options.  You might be making a decision that you cannot easily change down the road."
