Allstate Becomes a #1 Pick In The Medicare Supplement Market With National General

Allstate began in 1931 and is the 4th largest insurer in the United States.  They acquired National General Holdings Corporation out of New York for a whopping $4 Billion.   Allstate now has a strong lead on their competitors in the Medicare Supplement market.  We rate this as one of the Best 5 Medicare supplements!

You can expect to see National General Medicare Supplement rebranded as an Allstate product in the fall of 2022. Dating back to 1939 National General was a part of General Motors and well known in the industry.  They brought over 70 years experience to Allstate who now has several new products to offer including; Medicare Supplements, dental plans, fixed benefit medical, short term medical and accident insurance.
