And remember that United Health is the one that pays AARP to use the AARP endorsement.. I find that offensive! Yes it’s called a contract between them but for me what is means is that United Health is given free access to the AARP data base. and they are not the least expensive at all – they just like you to think they are – and to make you think that if you are an AARP member you are getting a “deal.” I at first signed on with them when I was 65 and my “guaranteed” rate for a year went up after 6 months – so I found other insurance…..and got a very rude call from UnitedHealth….
