Just Me - 1 d 15 h ago


I need to cancel my membership in this organization. I am not asking for any refund, I just want to have nothing to do with your company anymore. You don't seem to have any email address and when I call I am not sure if I am talking with someone from AARP or United Health Care. The AARP representative does an electronic medicare supplement plan application and I question her on what she is telling me and she says she is correct. The application is submitted and then a week later I get a call from United Health Care saying I did not submit the correct information. I said that I submitted what I was requested and then the representative said that I was all wrong and I need to submit more information. I told her that I am tired of doing all this work and to cancel my application. Hopefully she did that. I will never deal with AARP again and I will dedicate my time to make sure all my employees are aware of your problems and discourage them from joining. I think you just got to big and no one tells me I did something wrong when your employee told me to do it that way.

I have had my PC attacked and ever since I have been receiving letters stating that I ordered you company's services and that I owe your company for those services. This is to inform you that I never ordered you company's services and would like all letters demanding payment for said services I never ordered to stop.

i would like to reach A. Barry Rand. CEO.

What people are you trying to help With your RX Drug insurance? Surely not the biggest population of Retired People.

Some of the insurance drug plans, people can't afford the tiers on some of the plans.

Mr. Rands increase in the drug co-pays is so he can get a raise. His $575,000 annual salary apparently is not enough!

It seems like Mr. Rand should run for President of the United States. With his $575,000 a year, he needs a pay cut. And now JoAnn Jenkins is now the person in charge of AARP. When you call aarp, all the representatives are from different states. Why can't you call Mrs. Jenkins instead of a 800 number. She to afraird to give out her Washington, DC number

When I called AARP and ask to please leave a message for Ms Jo Ann Jenkins , I was told by Leo, a supervisor that she does not talk to members. I was so shocked I was speechless!!!

AARP is a money making political agenda machine. What do you expect? I'll bet this doesn't stay up long!

Hi Christina:

There may be a situation of hierarchy involved in reaching her for unresolved issues. I may be able to get you to that level of reaching her if your demands are not met. Feel free to contact me at (hidden).

I have accident forgiveness with policy. I was rearended, the persons who hit me insuramce paid for damages to my car. But Hartfort held the accident against me. They raised my primium by 198.00 a year for 5 years. When l called them on it. They said it was a surcharge not a primium increase. And to think I have had AARP for over 15 years plus home owners I am now looking for hopefully more honest copany, good luck to me.

Just sent a letter to UHC concerning the cost of insulin. I am sending a copy to Rand so he knows I want certain information about what Optum Rx is paying for these drugs. The cost for insulin is skyrocketing and the price they are paying is costing me a lot.

I am in the donut hole after 3 months. Optum Rx which is one of three negotiators for drugs made $19.7 Billion in the first quarter of 2016. Obscene . And I'm going to find out why. The easy way or the hard way, it's up to them.

You signed a contract. Did you read it? Did you understand it??

If not......You are screwed.

NEVER sign anything until they give you the meaning of EVERY word in the contract. And then under your signature write/print "All Rights Reserved".

Get it????

Got IT????

AARP KEEPS BILLING my mom and we never signed up!

Charging her for meds $175.00!

She has 3 member numbers and when I said to the agaent that this smells like a scam, the agent never denied it!!

Seniors are being harrassed, lied to and robbed all in the name of AARP!!

Prima - 78 d ago


You're right. I've just been charged for my Plan N supplement after cancelling it last year. The runaround is Horrific & they collected 2 months fees & will only refund one. This caused serious hardship & overdraw to my checking acct., costing me add'l $38, Was told it would take 29 to 30 days to refund??? I signed up for their HMO & cancelled this back in October. + Their structure on Plan D is horrific. Still billing me for that out of my SSI & having impossible problems reaching the correct person to cancel since 2016.

AARP has been very good to me, paying medical bills that Medicare does not cover. It is good medical insurance. Plus trying to improve the plight of seniors and advice to help stay healthy. Any other insurance is not going to be any better for the price.

They are helping AARP. I asked for quotes for prescription insurance and when I got the quote the premium itself was higher than I pay for the prescriptions. If you want to save money go to Health Warehouse (in Kentucky) for minor needs and for major needs they don't carry go to PharmStore is Canadian and they get the generic drugs form other countries like India. In other words from the same place where the American drug companies get them. Our government passed a law to keep people from getting drugs from outside the US. Fortunately they are not currently enforcing it but think about this...The law states that it is illegal to import any order of drugs worth LESS than $2,500.00. Now think about why LESS than 25 hundred? I submit it is so you can't import any while specifically exempting drug companies!

I would like to comment on your recent article covering Madonna, along with her comments on sexuality. We are ASTOUNDED that AARP would publish ANY ARTICLE covering a woman who OFFERED ORAL SEX TO MALES IF THEY VOTED FOR HILLARY CLINTON! She has also stated SHE GAVE CONSIDERABLE THOUGHT TO BLOWING UP THE WHIITE HOUSE. Many subscribers have contacted AARP with their complaints by telephone, so I know I am not alone. We have been members for years, and have been very impressed with the information and storylines printed, but this situation is totally offensive AND insensitive at the same time. This is the time for the Board of Directors to become more involved, apologize to their subscribers, and guarantee that AARP magazine will be monitored much more closely. As well; the AARP needs to ensure stories are evaluated as acceptable to the magazine's readers, before they are printed. WHOEVER made the decision to include the story covering such an poor human example of decency, is beyond me.

Hey hold on.. how come i never heard that Madonna would give oral sex to anyone voting for Hilary. Although i voted for Trump, my nasty old hag of a wife has not given me the old nod-bob in ages. Jeez, I woulda switched my vote in a Mira lago minute!

I Am Not Stupid Man - 9 d 3 h ago


I don't believe this and you supply no source (let alone a reliable one) for this info. Yeah Madonna's strange and not conservative, but really? I consider this gross misinformation and it amazes me that it is on the top of the comment list (monitor these somebody). It is a black eye for AARP. GET A LIFE!

I had my taxes done by AARP. It is was as usual, great. One thing I noticed is on the finished tax envelope, if the survey is not peeled off, The info on what to bring next year is covered and can't be seen. I happened to notice although I saw that I could do the survey online. I never do surveys online because almost always surveys go to a 3rd party info gathering company that could be far less trustworthy and my privacy is of great concern. I recommend to anyone to not fill out online surveys they go to other 3rd party research company links almost always. I did mine online because I did it from the library and could not be traced back and I gave no E-Mail. Anyway the survey sheet covers the "What to bring next year" info. Which I would have never saw or if I did, I would have not remembered to go last year's to get it, and that's if I noticed it since it was completely covered.It should be on a separate sheet to put in the next year receipts. Take note of this or you will end up having to return twice for lack of proper info! I hope AARP reads this and corrects this.
