AARP selects a number of private insurers to make available special healthcare products and insurance programs specially designed for AARP members. For Medicare beneficiaries, AARP offers Medicare Advantage plans, Medigap policies, and Medicare Part D* prescription drug plans.
AARP Medicare Advantage plans are offered through SecureHorizons, a subsidiary of UnitedHealthcare. Since AARP focuses on improving the lives of seniors, AARP Medicare Advantage plans are designed to provide choice, quality, and cost-effectiveness to put seniors in control of the healthcare they need. Plans may eliminate the need for a referral to see a specialist, or offer coverage for preventive care to help you avoid getting sick. SecureHorizons is dedicated to providing information to members so that they can best understand and control decisions about their healthcare.
UnitedHealthcare also offers Medicare Part D prescription drug plans under the AARP brand name. You can choose to purchase a prescription drug plan if you are on the Original Medicare Plan, or if you do not receive drug coverage through your Medicare Advantage plan. While benefits vary by plan, AARP prescription drug plans may offer the added comfort of plans with low or no deductibles, or the ability to receive your prescription drugs through the mail. The aim is to make receiving your drug benefits more affordable and secure.
