(For the record, I think Medigap insurance makes sense; we just don't need it because we are covered through a plan from a previous employer.)
I really don't care if they stamp their name on Medigap policies, but they are not doing what's best for their members by not recommending the lowest priced Medigap plan. Benefits for Plan F from company ABC are exactly the same as Plan F from company XYZ, but with different rates.

My mother dropped AARP after they endorsed G. W. Bush for president. She hated President Bush.
