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.

Terry from Maricopa

To AARP the ad stating President Trump will protect Medicare and Social Security as it is ,is very likely to back fire in your face.If Trump and Ryan etc have a way to change it like they want to change the ACA they will most assuredly work on doing just that.We need to call Trump first a remind him of what he promised on the campaign trail.I hope AARP is as neutral as they claim to be and maybe do or redo the ad about these very important issues to many of us ,for the future protection to these programs,so impossible to many of us....

Having contacted OptumRx about the price gouging copay of $155,00 for the Crestor generic Rousavastatin, I was informed that they do not set the copay. "Your insurance plan sets the copay". Since this generic has been available since 2016 and our previous health plan charged us a 20,00 copay, and it is one of top two drugs prescribed in the United States I must ask why this generic is a tier 3 drug? This overcharge completely negates any savings on all of my generic drugs. Could someone explain this to me?

Lobby Target - 14 d 9 h ago

AARP is the biggest lobby target around. They say you get discounts but check around first , not always the lowest

The health and drug companies just want AARP approval

To the CEO: Sir/Madam: I sincerely hope this gets to you, not some clerk in the back room. During the past couple of years in particular, I have been sent invitations to join AARP from your offices in DC and from the CA offices. I have repeatedly responded with the fact that I am a member through my husband's membership, given them the card numbers, the address, my husbands name it, I have sent the information and yet, a couple of months later come more invitations to join and we start all over again. It is now at a harassment level as far as I am concerned. What a flagrant waste of money for the postage and the cost of the clerk that sends it out, etc. Typical waste of money by DC. WHEN WILL YOU STOP SENDING ME THESE PIECES OF AIL???????????????

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!!!

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 - 49 d 7 h 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!
