It’s time to review your
Medicare plan for next year

Relax, we do the work for you
Start with a no-cost Medicare review with a AAA Medicare Licensed Advisor

Of all the destinations AAA can help you reach, you may be surprised to know that Medicare is one of them. Our experienced AAA Medicare Licensed Advisors don’t work for the insurance carriers. We work for you to ensure you get the Medicare plan that’s best for you.

We’ll discuss your medical, prescription drug and personal needs. Then we’ll shop the local and national plans available to you and provide an unbiased comparison of your best options. We’ll even get you enrolled if you decide to change plans.

It all starts with a complimentary Medicare review.

We compare. You decide.

This October, save time by letting AAA do the Medicare plan comparison shopping for you with a complimentary Medicare review by phone, video conference, or in person at one of our branches.

There’s no cost to you, and our AAA Medicare Licensed Advisors will shop the available plans to compare monthly plan premiums, prescription drug costs, copays, provider networks, and added benefits.
