Types of Medicare Policy Ratings:
- Community-rated – The same monthly premium is charged to everyone who has the Medicare policy, regardless of age. Premiums are the same no matter how old the applicant is. Premiums may go up because of inflation and other factors, but not based on age.
- Issue-age-rated – The premium is based on the age the applicant is when the Medicare policy is bought. Premiums are lower for applicants who buy at a younger age and won’t change as they get older. Premiums may go up because of inflation and other factors, but not because of applicant’s age.
- Attained-age-rated – This is the most common type of Medicare Supplement Policy. The premium is based on the applicant’s current age so the premium goes up as the applicant gets older. Premiums are low for younger buyers, but go up as they get older. In addition to change in age, premiums may also go up because of inflation and other factors.
