Nassau Financial Group, based in Hartford, CT, joined together in 2015, though its some of its affiliates began as early as 1851. They strive to achieve their values of service, commitment, and integrity in those they insure. Nassau services over 573,000 policies and contracts, totaling over $26.3 billion in combined assets and over $1.1 billion in capital. They have been awarded a B+ rating by AM Best and a BB+ rating from Fitch Ratings for their financial security and strength.

Nassau Medicare Supplement Plan Choices

Plans A, F, G, and N are available in most states, but the only way you can get Plan F (or high-deductible F) is if you were eligible for Medicare Part A before January 1st, 2020. If you can answer “No” to all the health questions, then you may be able to pass underwriting. If you are in an Open Enrollment or Guaranteed Issue period, including ending your employer group insurance or COBRA, you can purchase a Medicare Supplement, or Medigap, policy without any health underwriting, and you don’t have to worry about passing the health questions.

Nassau Financial Group uses an electronic application and processing system to speed up your application process. Nassau will call over the phone to verify the information on your application, and they anticipate a decision within minutes. If you are approved, you will gain coverage in 1-2 business days. They offer both tobacco and non-tobacco rates for Medicare Supplement, or Medigap, policies.

Additional Benefits with Nassau Medicare Supplements

Household discount: If you have lived with at least one, but no more than three, other adults age 50+ for the past 12 months who are also covered by Nassau or are currently in the application process, you may be eligible for a 7% household discount.

30-Day free look: If you are not satisified with your coverage, you can receive a full refund.

Renewable guaranteed: As long as you pay your premiums on time, your policy cannot be canceled. You will always have the option to continue your coverage.

Applying with Nassau if You’re Not in an Open Enrollment or Guaranteed Issue Period

Unfortunately, the simple diagnosis or use of a single declinable medication alone can disqualify you from being accepted by Medicare Supplement, or Medigap, company. However, depending on the amount of time that has passed since the initial diagnosis and final treatment of certain medical conditions, Nassau may give you special consideration for their coverage and acceptance. If you have one of the conditions listed in the specified time frame, you can call (614) 402-5160 to get professional one-on-one advice and to find another provider who will accept you for coverage. All you need to do is fill out the form on the left and one of our independent agents will call you to find another Medicare Supplement, or Medigap, company. These include:
