There is no reason to pay more.  Medicare mandates what benefits insurance companies must include.  Some may offer a few nominal added benefits (like gym memberships).  But basically all policies with the same letter (Plan G) are identical.

Why does one company offer Medicare Supplement Plan G for $278.25 a month?  Is there something wrong with a company that is charging $476.04 monthly?

The answer is somewhat complex.  Each insurance company gets to decide what they charge for Medicare Supplement insurance.  Medicare Supplement is also often called Medigap.

Insurance companies can change their rates each year.  For that reason, you should ask the agent for a history of insurance company rate increases.

But the bottom line is that each insurance company get to decide what they want to charge.  They look at their claims experience.  Then they predict future trends and care needs.

It is up to you, the consumer to compare, and to make your best decision.
