Extend Your Medicare Coverage Beyond the Traditional Network of Doctors

Don’t sacrifice the care you need at the big specialty clinics. BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina is here to get the most out of your Medicare coverage.

Are you looking for a Medicare Supplement plan that will cover visits to the best specialty clinics without breaking the bank? Look no further than BlueCare Plan G from BlueCross BlueShield of South Carolina.

With this plan, you can get the care you need at the clinic of your choice, without prior authorizations or referrals. And our five-star customer service team is based here in South Carolina, so you can always get the help you need.

Specialty Clinics and Saving on Medical Costs

Some specialty medical clinics — like Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic and Johns Hopkins — charge you more than the Medicare contracted rate (20 percent Part B coinsurance and 15 percent Part B coverage charges*). A BlueCare Plan G from BlueCross will cover you even at these and other clinics that don’t accept Medicare as full reimbursement.

For example, if the Medicare allowed amount was $100,000 for a treatment you need at a clinic that charges Part B excess fees, you would owe $35,000 in medical bills if you just had Medicare Part A and Part B.

But with a BlueCare Plan G (Medigap) plan from BlueCross, you could get this same $100,000 treatment at the clinic of your choice for only $226, the 2023 Part B deductible. A BlueCare Plan G would save you $99,774 in medical bills. The plan premium starts at less than $120 per month, depending on your age and gender.

Go to Your Specialist of Choice Without Prior Authorization

For even more peace of mind, you will not have to get prior authorizations or referrals to see the Medicare doctors of your choice nationwide with your BlueCross Medicare Supplement plan. BlueCare Plan G offers foreign travel emergency coverage, too. If you ever need help with claims, you will speak to our customer service team based here in South Carolina, not someone at an overseas call center.

BlueCross Medicare plans offer peace of mind when you need it most so you can focus on what matters most: getting well and staying that way.
