Top Ranked Companies


The Good

  • Medicare Supplemental Insurance
  • Employee Benefits

Medicare Supplemental Insurance

Transamerica only offers Medicare supplemental insurance to consumers. This insurance not only helps cover out-of-pocket medical expenses, but can also defray the cost of health care even more than Medicare policies do by providing additional money to help pay out-of-pocket expenses.

Employee Benefits

Transamerica offers the following additional types of insurance that employers can offer their employees:

  • Accident insurance
  • Cancer insurance
  • Critical illness insurance
  • Dental insurance
  • Out-of-pocket medical expense (GAP) insurance
  • Hospital Indemnity Insurance
  • Short-term disability income insurance
  • Vision insurance

These additional benefits can augment an employer’s standard health insurance offerings.


The Bad

  • Limited Online Information

Limited Online Information

While Transamerica’s website offers a good overview of employee benefits it sponsors, there could be more specific information about cost.

Transamerica’s website also does not have specific information about its Medicare supplemental plans available online for every state. Interested consumers should contact Transamerica directly for more details.


The Bottom Line

Transamerica has received high financial ratings from A.M. Best, Moody’s, Standard and Poor’s, and Fitch. These ratings indicate that Transamerica is financial strong and able to meet its claims obligations.

Transamerica offers a nice range of additional employee benefits through employers. Employers looking to augment their employee benefit options should consider what Transamerica has to offer.

Consumers interested in Medicare supplemental insurance should reach out to Transamerica directly for more information regarding policy offerings, terms, and costs.
