About this Review
This page presents an independent review of American Retirement Life as a Medicare Supplement insurance carrier in Rhode Island as compared to all other carriers. MedicareWire provides this information for consumer educational purposes. Our goal is to present information accurately and without bias, based on our interpretation of factual information about each carrier.
Medicare Supplement insurance, also known as Medigap insurance, must follow federal and state laws and does not work with any other type of health insurance, including Medicare Advantage Plans, employer/union group health coverage, Medicaid, Veterans Administration (VA) benefits, or TRICARE. Insurance companies, including American Retirement Life, can only sell you a standardized Medigap policy identified by letters A through M. Each standardized policy must offer the same benefits, no matter which insurance company sells it. Cost is the primary difference between Medigap policies sold by different insurance companies.
