BALTIMORE--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Transamerica announced today that it will begin sales of its new individual Medicare Supplement Insurance plans insured by Transamerica Life Insurance Company. The new Medigap plans have been approved in AZ, GA, IA, ID, IN, KY, ME, MI, MO, MT, ND, NE, NM, SC, SD, TN, UT, WA, WV, and WY, and more approvals are pending. Transamerica Medicare Supplement plans help those on Medicare cover some of the health care costs (“gaps”) that Medicare does not cover, such as copayments, coinsurance and deductibles.
Transamerica will continue to make available its group Medicare Supplement and Employer Prescription Drug Plans (Employer PDP) through its Transamerica Affinity Services business unit.*
“With only Medicare Parts A and B, consumers could potentially be paying thousands of dollars in expenses out of their own pockets. Medicare Supplement plans are designed to exchange the complex coinsurance and deductible requirements found under traditional Medicare with predictable monthly premiums. These new plans are competitively priced and policyholders, applicants, and distribution partners should also expect the same first class level of service they have enjoyed with our companies for many years,” said Brian Healy, Senior Vice President at Transamerica Affinity Services, a business unit of Transamerica.
Transamerica Life Insurance Company has received some of the highest ratings available from insurance rating agencies such as A.M. Best, whose current rating of the company is A+ (Superior, 2nd of 16 rating categories, as of May 8, 2013).
