While there is no such thing as an AARP Medicare Supplement Plan, AARP is able to help low income seniors by charging dues to its more than 37 million members. Additionally, money is raised by royalties from insurance companies that sold products referred by AARP.

AARP does a very selective process and ensure that its partners are credible and fit their standards.

AARP has been partnering with United Healthcare (UHC) for more than a decade. UHC is 14th on the Fortune 500 list and serves approximately 70 million individuals throughout the United States.
