Victim of AARP The Hartford

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.
Uselessness of AARP
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, ... read full review2 Replies - Latest reply on 12/22/2012

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.
Not in seniors' interest

Once I received my card in the mail received something every single week from solicited AARP. NO real savings and the biggest let down is that what they offer you as discount, you can get without paying for a membership.
Just another product that targets people's pockets.
FLORIDA -- "Genea N." would not even connect me to a supervisor when she her hands were tied and she could not help me! Rude and unhelpful - bad combination for a business built on helping people.
If a customer service representative is unequipped to assist due to language barriers or plain old incompetence, then a supervisor should be the next logical step. This leaves you with the option of calling back repeatedly in order to get someone that can speak English or just shopping around for a better choice altogether.
PORT SAINT LUCIE, FLORIDA -- Part of your monthly united healthcare insurance payment goes to AARP directly (they don't tell you how much). I paid $130 monthly for 6 months and they hardly paid anything out.. . . still had deductibles and had to pay portion. . What they tell you in order to get you to sign up and what is reality . . .it is a scam. Better off being with an HMO or just on Medicare. I paid $46 for RX through them and had high payouts and was constantly told by RX Store that I must be in the "black out " period or something of that nature. . . it's a joke. The only ones profiting from these plans are the insurance companies. I opted out and I am trying Humana HMO plan. . ..no monthly payments and I have getting better RX than with AARP and no deductibles to primary. . . so far so good.Add reply
