Original Medicare only covers a percentage of your medical costs. Without a Medicare Supplement plan, your out-of-pocket costs can add up quickly.
With a Medicare Supplement plan, your overall health coverage is enhanced. That’s why these plans are also known as Medigap – because they help you pay for some of the healthcare costs that are not covered by Original Medicare. Additionally, Medicare Supplement plans allow you to see any medical doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare.
Medicare doesn’t have to be so complicated. To simplify your Medicare coverage decision, Blue Shield has modernized our Medicare Supplement plan offerings.
You can count on Blue Shield, because all four of our plans are priced based on the coverage they provide. That means you can choose the level of coverage that meets your healthcare needs and budget.
It’s time to decide which Medicare Supplement plan is right for you. Although you may pay a higher monthly rate for more coverage with one of our plans, you will also reduce healthcare expenses.
