NEW YORK -- I am eligible for Medicare in June 2013. I signed up with AARP for United Health Care's Supplemental Plan F. I sent in my check for $257. Within the following week my husband informed me that my check went towards his Medicare Plan because we share the same AARP membership #.

This is a second marriage and I maintain my financial independence.
AARP took my check and credited another individual's account with a different name. AARP never informed me. AARP has my money but my health insurance premium has not been credited. AARP has told me the only resolution for this problem is for me to obtain an individual AARP membership or just accept this as the way married people do it!
My choice of resolutions is to drop my United Health Care coverage and sign up with another agency, Contact the NYS AG and the NYS insurance board. United Health Care should pay more attention what AARP is doing! They may loose my business.

TEMPE, ARIZONA -- AARP advertises with the filthy mouth Rush Limbaugh. This man is a drug addict who hates college students and calls them [snip] for using birth control. He is totally against Medicare and SS. He is really against the Affordable Health Care Act. He is the biggest racist, bigot on radio. Rush even hates animals and poor children. This jerk has been Married at least 4 times and does not have any children. His daddy was a big time judge somewhere down south. He did not protest the Vietnam war and did not have to go. No wonder he does not support Vets with jobs, health care, and the GI bill for education. He does not even have a degree, he never went to college. He has gone to far and needs to stop. I would like to unsubscribe to AARP until they stop supporting Rush.4 Replies - Latest reply on 08/01/2013Add reply
NATIONWIDE, ARIZONA -- These have to be the most incompetent company I have dealt with. It makes you suspect that they deliberately obfuscate,, arbitrarily deny claims and inordinately delay payments in the hopes you will give up and pay it yourself. When I made the mistake of switching to them in Jan of this year, my then doctor warned me about their practices but I didn't pay attention, even changing doctors because he refused to deal with them any longer. I should have listened. Fortunately I will have the option of switching away from them at the end of the year, which I will do.
AARP should be excoriated for daring to suggest that they endorsed this company because they offer the best option. In my opinion, It seems obvious that is was purely a financial motivation. I believe that AARP has no problem screwing over its members if it can make a buck. In my opinion, there is no integrity there. We need a viable alternative to AARP that is responsive to customer needs, and puts them first.
NEW YORK -- I do not consider AARP as an effective organization anymore. It is prominent only in promotion of insurance companies, some services and others. AARP activities are not described in media: newspapers, TV, radio, Internet. 'Occupy Wall Street', unions, civil rights organizations have real power, they organize rallies, demonstrations, strikes, everything that bring attention to their issues. Nobody knows about petitions that AARP makes its members send to senators and congressmen. People over 50 are huge part of American population. We have to go to streets and squares to be heard.

HARTFORD, CONNECTICUT -- To really complain about AARP/Hartford Auto Insurance, I found out that the Hartford Auto Insurance company pays a royalty to AARP. So, instead of complaining to AARP, I am suggesting that a complaint form be filed with The State of Connecticut, Insurance Department, & you can print it off of your computer. The form is called CONSUMER COMPLAINT FORM, and it is believed that will get a better response than a complaint with AARP, because I could not find a complaint department within the AARP organization.

I tried to use my Member ID to obtain a forgotten user name and password. After several attempts, I tried to use my Medicare number (it said I could use either my member ID or my Medicare number). That was also unsuccessful. Then I tried to e-mail them @ aarpmedicareplans, I got the address from an AARP Rep on the phone, who previously told me that any info regarding my AARP MedicareComplete account could be obtained at that site. This is the site that wouldn't accept my Member ID and wouldn't accept e-mails. I couldn't find any customer contact sites. Incidently, I had to give my ID number on the phone before I could speak to a Rep. I may have done something in error, but I don't think so. Something should be done to make customer commuication more simpler and easier. 3 Replies - Latest reply on 08/01/2010Add reply

US -- I received MANY forms from AARP requesting my dues, it seemed that these coming every few months. I sent in my dues last August, my card states that my membership is paid up through Dec. 2013, and yet I received an "offer" for a free insulated bag if I renew now. Many elderly peple do not keep these records, AARP should be protecting its members, not trying to extract additional unnecessary fees!1 Replies - Latest reply on 08/31/2013Add reply
