What is Aetna Plan G rate increase history?
Aetna, like every insurance company, has rate increases.
Increases are based on several factors:
- Policy type
- Economic factors such as inflation
Previous rate increases can give you an idea of what your monthly premiums might be like in the future, but they’re not set in stone. Here are some details on rate increases:
- Historically between 3% and 10%
- Typically modest for Plan G due to the larger number of seniors insured
Aetna uses the “attained-age” rating method when setting monthly premiums for Medicare Supplement insurance plans. Attained-age rating bases premiums on your current age. This means that in addition to inflation or other economic factors, your rates will increase as you get older.
If you’re shopping for a Medigap policy, Aetna Medicare Plan G offers some advantages:
- 12-month rate-lock: A guarantee that your rates won’t increase the first year.
- 30-day free look period: You can cancel your health insurance policy for any reason within 30 days of enrollment and get a full refund of premiums you paid.
- Household discount: Eligibility rules and the discount amount can vary by state.
