At FirstCommunity seniors are our only business.

We are a local, not-for-profit health insurance company, still affiliated with Huntsville Hospital, and deeply committed to serving North Alabamians just like you. Since 1997, FirstCommunity has been providing high quality, affordable Medicare supplements to nearly 4000 “ 65+ boomers” in the nine county region we serve. We have a stake in being the best provider we can be because Huntsville is our home too.

Ed Boston, Huntsville Hospital’s Administrator from 1978 to 1998, was a visionary when it came to the health of Huntsville’s growing, vibrant community. Throughout his tenure, his mission was to improve healthcare services for the Tennessee Valley including the insurance needs of the baby boomer generation. Boston felt strongly that seniors should have affordable Medicare Supplemental coverage to fill in the gaps where Medicare leaves off with more choices in providers. To that end, in 1996 Huntsville Hospital, along with other leading North Alabama hospitals and physicians, developed FirstCommunity Health Plan, the parent company of FirstCommunity Senior Select Medicare Supplement.

Easily accessible, our office is located in the heart of the medical district in downtown Huntsville. Our staff of licensed, knowledgeable agents and claims specialists are ready to help you with customer service that is second to none – you will always talk to a real person when you call or stop by FirstCommunity. As a matter of fact, our members compliment us daily on our knowledge and friendliness, our quick claims process and especially our willingness to go the “extra mile” to help them with questions or concerns.

Are you 65 or older?

If you are turning 65 and need Medicare Supplemental coverage or if you are making a change in the Medigap coverage you currently have, we would like to be of service to you. Please call or stop by our office at 699-A Gallatin Street and we’ll be happy to help you find the plan that’s right for you – because you, like our members, really are like family.
