If you’ve been shopping around, you probably know by now that Medigap plans are standardized. This means that the benefits are regulated, so each and every plan g, no matter what insurance company you get it from, will have the same exact benefits. And since any plan g allows you to see any provider who accepts medicare – there are no networks – you won’t have access to more or less providers depending upon which company you go with. The benefits are literally identical. And just because one insurance company spends a ton of money on advertising and direct mailings to you doesn’t necessarily mean they’re the best. Each and every company legally must pay on your medical claims the same, that is regulated by medicare. So when answering the question “what is the best insurance company for plan g” there are really two main things to look at:
Price. Different companies are going to charge you different prices for the same Plan G. Pricing can vary based on your area, so you want make sure you look at various insurance company’s prices so you can compare.

Additionally, it’s good to see a company that offers many different lines of coverage (like life insurance, dental/vision insurance, ect)- this is another signifier of their financial strength. A company with strong financial will be better able to keep rate increases mild over time.
