Best added perks: AARP/UnitedHealthcare (AARP/UHC)

  • Editor rating

  • Plan K: $60
  • Plan L: $95
  • Plan N: $105
  • Plan G: $133

AARP/UnitedHealthcare Medigap plans strike the balance of being a good value while also having good customer satisfaction. The company has low average rates and extensive extra perks. The added benefits include a 30% to 40% discount on dental care through Dentegra, discounts on eye exams and lenses and discounts on hearing care and hearing aids. You'll even have access to perks unrelated to health care, like discounts on hotels and travel advice.

In Texas, you'll save an average of 6% if there are two or more members in your household with an AARP Medigap plan. This is called a "household discount," and AARP/UHC's discount is substantial.

You have to join AARP to buy a plan, though. The membership costs $16 per year and is usually worth it because it gives you access to the large collection of add-on perks.

AARP/UHC plans are usually the best deal if you are enrolling during a period when you can't be declined, like when you first become eligible for Medigap coverage. If you wait to buy coverage, you'll have to answer medical questions when you apply, and that can affect your eligibility and rates. If you have a preexisting health condition, and you don't apply for coverage as soon as you are eligible, your rates could be as high as $426 per month for Plan G.

Some of the AARP/UHC plans won't raise your rates because of your age. This is called "community pricing." It can give you more stable rates, although costs can still change with inflation.

  • *Plan G: $52
  • Plan N: $96

  • Plan F: $182
*High-deductible plan

While Cigna offers a good price on Plan N, there is a trade-off between cost and quality. Cigna has 27% more complaints about its Medicare Supplement policies than an average company its size.

While Cigna has the cheapest Plan N in Texas, its customer satisfaction is fairly low compared to other companies. It's only $2 more per month for Plan N from Mutual of Omaha, and the company's customer service record is much better.

How age affects Medigap rates in Texas

In Texas, insurance companies are allowed to use your age to set your Medicare Supplement rate.

For example, you'll pay an average of 32% more for a Medigap plan when you're 75 compared to when you're 65. However, prices typically level off after age 75. It’s important to buy a plan when you’re first eligible so your health issues can't be factored into your rate. If you wait to buy a plan, you'll likely pay more.

Not all insurance companies use age to set Medigap prices in Texas. To avoid age-based price increases, look for Medigap plans that use "community rating," like some of the plans from AARP/UnitedHealthcare. You might pay a little more at age 65, but annual cost increases will be much slower.

The state of Texas offers several resources to help you choose the right Medigap plan. These programs could also help you find out if you qualify for financial assistance to help with Medicare costs.
