AARP Medicare Supplement Plans
Since its inception in 1958, AARP has grown and changed dramatically in response to societal changes, while remaining true to its founding principles:
- To promote independence, dignity and purpose for older persons
- To enhance the quality of life for older persons
- To encourage older people “To serve, not to be served”
AARP Serves as an Advocate in the Marketplace
AARP and ASI regularly seek input from members; they also conduct research to identify which products and services would be of most value. ASI is responsible for looking into possible new offerings, performing quality control with regard to providers and monitoring the satisfaction of members who use AARP-branded products and services.
Products, services and discount benefits are managed with four key principles in mind:
- Affordability — AARP-branded products are not necessarily the least expensive, but they offer recognizable value at a competitive price thanks to responsible product design and efficient operations.
- Quality — Through ASI, AARP makes sure its branded products and services consistently meet high standards of quality for members.
- Simplicity — AARP-branded offerings deliver information about features, benefits and regulations that members can easily understand and take advantage of.
- Accessibility — AARP looks for products with the broadest geographic distribution and broad acceptance policies so they benefit as many 50+ Americans as possible.
