Who is running this show? How can A. Barry Rand be the CEO, when I just received a letter from JoAnn C. Jenkins, CEO? As soon as you renew they are sending you early reminder letters to renew again. Really? Then you do renew, they cash your check and two weeks later send you a "Last reminder to renew notice". If they saved all these useless reminder letters they would have more money to run this company efficiently. I was looking for the corporate address but after reading all these reviews I guess that would be a waste of time.

If Rand is making $575,000. What is Jenkins making?

OMG!! Why didn't I check this company (AARP) out better before I joined. Their website is awful, no corrective action, CEO apparently does not care about customers......geez...another corporation who does not care about customers...go figure.

I pray I can get past this year (ALIVE) and cancel everything with this company next enrollment. Hey AARP!!! It's not your Board of Directors that keeps you in business its your customers!!!!!!!!!! Wake up!!!!!!!!

I would like to join the group but the online registration system does not work. What a great first impression for a new member to join? Really?

There's a toll-free number on their main page, AARP.org. That service line was helpful to me earlier today. I am, however, beginning to see some serious problems in other areas after reading these reviews! Thanks for the heads-up!

I had the pleasure of speaking with Brittany around 3:40 pm PST, She's taking care of a problem I have with AARP business associates endlessly mailing their "offers" to me. It's very annoying and today I just had it to my limit.

Thank you, Brittany, for taking my name and address off this particular list. Hopefully I will not receive medical/vision/pharmacy, etc. proposals either. Other than my AARP newsletter and yearly bill, I want nothing else mailed to me.

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.

Really Please, (WHAT, OR SHOULD I SAY WHO ARE YOU REALLY HELPING)

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????

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

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.com. 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!

We have a totally controlled Republican congress that fully intends to gut Medicare and Social Security. WHERE IS AARP. Out selling insurance and cell phone. Why does the NRA have 10 times the clout of AARP????

I just got a letter from New York Life Ins. Co. stating that my AARP term life ins premium was increased by 71% because I had advanced into the next higher age group. While the policy states there will be an increase at 5 yr intervals, it gives no hint of such an outrageously high increase! AARP should provide in advance an estimate on the maximum amount of premium increase to be expected. Had I known this huge increase was going to be the case I never would have chosen AARP for my life ins. policy. Now that I am 5 years older it will be more difficult for me to shop around for a substitute policy with a more reasonable premium schedule that I could have obtained when younger. Basically I got suckered in by the initial low rate and now have my regrets. Don't let them do this to you. Shop around and get a full rate schedule!
