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 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.
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
So, I got a solicitation from AARP for life insurance. The cost is about 8x more than what I currently pay. The same is true with just about everything else they sell. I can only assume that they are preying on seniors that they supposedly "represent." I get that they are not for profit. But I can't help but think they are charging their members as much as they can to fund their agenda.

Bottom line, AARP does NOT represent me and never will.
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.

ROANOKE, VIRGINIA -- I, actually, have had this plan, over a couple years. Overall, it has saved me a lot of money, as I'm chronically ill. But e-warning!!!

Since implementation of the Health Care Reform, many things are covered, only, by act of congress (every pun intended). If you are not willing to fight for each odd claim, and know your stuff, you will have troubles. Possibly regardless of insurer as all GPO my medicare guidelines.
ATLANTA, GEORGIA -- Called to see why they didn't pay a claim to my doctors office. Medicare paid their part and AARP Health Care did not pay anything. When I called the company they said that I would have to have the doctor's office send them the papers saying that Medicare paid them. I ask them to call the doctor's office I had the telephone number, but they stated that was not their job. I pay them for my supplemental insurance, and them don't want to help me. I'm going to look for another supplemental insurance company.3 Replies - Latest reply on 04/05/2012Add reply

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.

increased by several hundred dollars. I have no claims or accidents. The CRs are quite surly and unhelpful, in my opinion and experience. I have got quotes that are much less and so I will be leaving them. I cannot recommend them to seniors.
I have had AARP United Health Care supplement insurance for six years. Each year the premium goes up. This year it jumped $12.00 although my SS benefits were not increased. My premiums are now $170.00/monthly and this does not include medicine. That's a big chunk out of SS benefits. I can't wait for our country's health care system to be improved. In the meantime, I'm shopping around for a better deal.3 Replies - Latest reply on 10/26/2010Add reply
My auto insurance increased by 8% this year. I have a 2007 Honda Odyssey. I'm thinking that because the van is another year older that the rate would go down. Wrong. I changed to AARP Hartford three years ago; every year they raise my premium. 2 Replies - Latest reply on 09/23/2010Add reply
I am so tried of AARP continually sending me applications for membership. They come with all sorts of names that are not mine, the latest being Goto Hell as the name.

I will never join a company that harasses people with unsolicited mailings that never seem to stop despite repeated requests to uncaring phone workers.
