How Connecticut Medigap plans work

Medigap plans in Connecticut are "community rated." This means that insurance companies charge the same rate for everyone who buys the same plan. So everyone who buys Plan G from AARP/UnitedHealthcare will pay the same rate, for example. Your age, gender, health and other factors can't be used to set your premium. Prices can still change with inflation and vary between companies and plans. Connecticut health insurance companies also can't decline to sell you a Medigap plan because of your health. All Medicare Supplement plans in CT are "guaranteed-issue."

These two features mean you can change Medicare Supplement plans in Connecticut at any time. You won't have to answer medical questions, and you won't be charged a higher rate because of your age.

Methodology and sources

All Medicare Supplement rates are averages for a person who does not smoke. The rates represent the costs when consumers are first eligible for a plan, have preferred rates and do not have to undergo medical underwriting. Rates are based on actuarial data for private health insurance companies in CT. Only companies with 450 or more policies were analyzed.

We chose the best plans and companies by analyzing rates, customer satisfaction and financial strength ratings from AM Best. America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) was used for the information on plan popularity. Information about Connecticut's Medicare-eligible population comes from Kaiser Family Foundation.

The customer satisfaction score for each company is based on average complaint data from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). The scores use a five-point scale. Higher scores mean lower levels of complaints, which mean better customer service.
