REVIEW: Sentinel Security Life Medicare Supplements in South Dakota
Sentinel Security Life scored 2.5 out of 5.0 based on our scoring method. Sentinel Security 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 South Dakota. See the top 10 competition.
Here are the pros and cons from our analysis:
- Good 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.

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 Sentinel Security 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 only difference between Medigap policies sold by different insurance companies.
