Amerihealth began selling Medigap plans in New Jersey starting this year and they have been one of the top sellers for good reason. The Amerihealth Medigap plans have been received very well in New Jersey and are a solid choice for anyone wanting a solid brand and great coverage.
Amerihealth Medigap Plans
This year, Amerihealth is selling Medigap Plan F, Medigap Plan N and Plan A. Unfortunately, they don’t also sell Plan G, but plan F is the most comprehensive available so no worries on getting a great supplement plan.
Just like every other Medicare Supplement, the Amerihealth plans can be used anywhere in the country where is Medicare is accepted.
You can download the rates here but please check with me in case they update before I have a chance to update this page.
I should have put these up top since they are unique to any of the Medicare Supplement plans in NJ, but they have some fantastic added benefits.
These benefits are part of the healthy lifestyle benefits. The gym benefit is for $150 reimbursement after 120 workouts at an approved gym; they can call member service to see if a gym is approved or to request that a gym be approved. Most facilities are approved. The other benefits include:
- Receive up to $150 for joining a qualified weight management program
- Receive up to $150 for program enrollment
- Receive up to $150 for smoking cessation program enrollment
These benefits are usually reserved for Medicare Advantage plans so the ability to get them through your Plan F or Plan N is great.
How to Apply for a new Amerihealth plan
Very easy! Call or email me. 609-703-3536 or email at [email protected]
Amerihealth is very easy to enroll with just as every other carrier in New Jersey. They don’t require a payment with your application and are one of the few companies that allow monthly payment without a direct draw from your bank account.
One of the slight drawbacks of applying with Amerihealth is that that in my experience they take a bit longer to process applications. With some carriers, I can pull your ID number within 48 hours but with Amerihealth it has been a few weeks. So that being said, if you need a card right away, let me know and we can talk about the best course of action.
If you want to see what the application looks like see it here. Amerihealth Medigap Enrollment Form. Keep in mind, if you are coming from a group plan or are just enrolling in Part B, you do not need to answer the medical questions.

Amerihealth vs Other NJ Medigap Carriers
It ‘s hard to predict what the future will hold for the rates but I don’t predict any significant rate changes in the years to come. While they are one of the best-priced plans and top plan for many folks, they aren’t priced so low that we would expect large increases. When comparing them to AARPMedicare Supplement, Mutual of Omaha, or any of the big companies, the coverage will be the same, but you do get the added benefits of the gym membership reimbursement as well as some of the other benefits.
