AHIP Survey: 9 in 10 Seniors Satisfied with their Medicare Supplement

Looking to sell a product that is simple, reliable and offers your customers good value for their money? According to the 2012 Medigap Satisfaction Survey from America's Health Insurance Plans (AHIP), that's exactly how seniors feel about their Medicare Supplement insurance.

The survey, which was released earlier this month, found that:

  • 90% of Medicare Supplement policyholders are satisfied with their coverage
  • 63% say they are very satisfied (compared to 59% for Original Medicare)
  • 79% feel it provides excellent or good value for their money
  • 91% would recommend Medicare Supplement to a friend or relative

AHIP did the same poll in 2009 and the 2012 numbers are more favorable across the board.

Other interesting findings from the survey:

  • 19% would be willing to pay a higher deductible in order to reduce monthly premiums
  • 92% are satisfied with the Medicare program
  • 29% said the Medigap benefit they value most is it allows your to see the doctor of your choice
