How does Medicare work with AARP?

Dr. Michael Roizen, MD
Internal Medicine
Medicare and the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) work together like the YOU Docs who supplement and support each other as needed. That’s because the AARP is one of the private carriers of approved supplemental coverage for Medicare. AARP offers Supplemental Medicare Plans (like Medigap), Medicare Advantage and Prescription Drug Plans.
For more information about AARP Medicare programs, contact www.aarp.org or Medicare at 1-800-633-4227 or online at www.medicare.gov.
