It's important for consumers to know who they are doing business with, especially when it comes to something as important as health insurance.

For this reason, we will always share with our prospective clients what we know about each Medicare supplement provider we represent.
GPM Medicare Supplement Plans - Background
GPM Life, formally established as Government Personnel Life Insurance Company, was established 84 years ago in 1934. This time period is well known for the two major wars that cost a lot of American lives and financially devastated countless families.
During that time in America, GPM’s founder, Peter Hennessey, who was a retired Army Colonel, discovered that life insurance policies which were issued during that time period typically excluded claims that were the result of the war. In fact, many people who purchased life insurance policies to cover themselves or a family member were unaware of the act of war exclusion contained in the policies.Because of Peter Hennessey's commitment, Government Personnel Mutual Life Insurance Company was established in 1934 to serve the needs of America’s military personnel and their families. Since that time, GPM has expanded their footprint to offer life insurance, annuities, and GPM Medicare Supplement plans to all Federal Employees and civilians in the United States
When Colonel Hennessey was made aware of the situation he approached many of the national insurers about the exclusion and none were willing to offer the coverage for death resulting from war. Realizing that many American families were affected by this lack of coverage, Colonel Hennessey decided to establish a new life insurance company that would offer coverage for men and women if they were killed during the war.

Look for the Difference in Extra Benefits and Service
Since Medicare controls the coverages in each plan that private insurance companies are allowed to offer, every insurer must offer the same core benefits in the plans they decide to offer. The difference between insurers is going to boil down to pricing, extra benefits, and customer service.
We certainly urge all prospective customers to learn which companies stand out in the crowd when it comes to pricing, extra benefits, and customer service so that you can make an informed decision about which company and which plan will best meet your needs and your budget.
