What Medicare Supplements does Gerber Life offer in Alabama?
Gerber Life Insurance Company offers 5 different Alabama Medigap Plans. Each plan covers the gaps in Original Medicare differently (see Comparison Chart or check out our Review). Here's what Gerber Life offers:
Attained Age Rated Medigap Plans: With this plan rating type your monthly premium is based on your current age. As you age your premium will increase. As an example, if you enroll in a Medigap policy at age 65 with a premium of $120, it may increase to $138 when you turn 69, and $162 at age 72. Also, Attained Age rated plans may increase with inflation.
SAVINGS OPPORTUNITY: Gerber Life offers Medicare SELECT plan policies in some areas of Alabama. A Select plan is a Medigap policy that requires you to use specific hospitals and, in some cases specific doctors, to get the full financial benefit of the plan. A Medicare SELECT plan pays the Medicare Part A inpatient deductible when you use a network hospital or if you use a non-network hospital for emergency care. Otherwise, you pay the inpatient deductible. Other than that it's the same as the standard Medigap plan.

REVIEW: Gerber Life Medicare Supplements in Alabama
Gerber Life scored 3.0 out of 5.0 based on our scoring method. Gerber Life 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:
- Excellent financial strength.
- Offers Medicare SELECT plans.
- Uncompetitive Plan F premium.
- Less than 10 years in the Medicare Supplements business.
- Does not offer the 5 most popular plans.

About this Review
This page presents an independent review of Gerber Life as a Medicare Supplement insurance carrier in Alabama 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 Gerber 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.
Additional Foot Notes
 Sample premium is for a 65 year old, non smoking, woman living in Alabama. The rate was accurate on date of publication. Rates change frequently and they are priced by county. You must contact a licensed agent to get a current rate for your situation.
