CHICAGO - Aug. 9, 2018 - PRLog -- The difference between the least expensive and most expensive Medicare Supplement insurance policy in major Illinois markets can vary by as much as 97 percent according to a study by the American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance.

"While Medicare Supplement insurance policies are basically standardized, each insurer sets their own rates and the difference between the lowest and highest cost can be significant," explains Jesse Slome, director of the Association.  The organization compared rates for both men and women age 65 who live in major U.S. markets.

The largest difference between the lowest available cost and the highest could be found in Rockford, Illinois.  "The difference was 97.5 percent," Slome shares.  The lowest cost for a 65-year-old female purchasing a Medigap Plan F policy was $116.61-per-month the Association found.  The highest cost for Plan F in Rockford was $338.50.   Details of the 2018 cost comparison findings for Illinois Medicare Supplement costs can be accessed via the organization's website.

"There are many factors that insurers use to set policy costs, and we don't necessarily recommend buying the least expensive," Slome admonished. "But we do recommend at least learning about costs before locking yourself into a policy or a particular insurance company."

The organization provides free access to the leading national Find A Local Medicare Insurance Agent online directory providing information on nearly 1,000 professionals listed by Zip Code.   No information need be entered to access the director at the Association's website,

The American Association for Medicare Supplement Insurance advocates for the importance of planning and supports insurance professionals who market Medicare-related insurance products.
