REVIEW: Central States Medicare Supplements in Alabama
Central States scored 3.5 out of 5.0 based on our scoring method. Central States has a good financial rating from A.M. Best, but their Plan F is not in the top 10 best rates and they have less than 10 years experience servicing Medicare Supplements. Plus, they ding you with a $25.00 policy fee. We are confident in their financial strength, but feel there are better options in Alabama. See the top 10 competition.
Here are the pros and cons from our analysis:
- Superior financial strength.
- Uncompetitive Plan F premium.
- Less than 10 years in the Medicare Supplements business.
- Does not offer Medicare SELECT plans.
- Does not offer the 5 most popular plans.
- Charges a fee to write the policy.
