Congratulations on taking the first step towards Medicare

You’re turning 65 and retiring soon – what a milestone! It’s a great time in your life. But it might leave you with a lot of questions regarding various aspects of life, including your health care coverage. The days of being on your company’s insurance plan will soon be over and you’ll be embarking on a new path with Medicare.

Now that you’re here, it’s crucial to learn more about your Medicare benefits and if all of your medical needs are taken care of. When you’re turning 65 you have an initial enrollment period (IEP) to enroll in a Medicare plan.

This lasts from three months before your birth month to three months following your birth month. After this, you may face late enrollment penalties so it’s important to plan and be ready when your birthday is approaching.

Fact: Original Medicare doesn't cover everything

Original Medicare covers some of the costs of hospital stays and doctor visits, but there’s a lot that’s not covered. Things like prescription drugs, copayments, coinsurance, and deductibles all come out of your pocket. Not to mention dental, wellness or hearing care. These bills could potentially add up to thousands of extra dollars every year that you’re responsible for, depleting your savings and potentially leaving you in financial trouble.

Your retirement years shouldn’t make you panic. You should be able to enjoy life. Have peace of mind your medical bills are covered with a BlueCross Medicare plan.

The right Medicare plan for you

The next step is deciding what kind of Medicare plan you need. We offer three types of plans for you to choose from:

Medicare Advantage Plans

MA plans offer a more comprehensive alternative to Original Medicare. They include the same benefits, plus additional benefits Original Medicare doesn’t cover including prescription drug coverage.

Medicare Supplement Plans

These plans help pay costs not covered by Original Medicare Parts A and B, such as your copays, deductible and coinsurance.

Prescription Drug Plans

These plans help you save money on prescriptions. You can purchase a PDP when you have a Medicare Supplement, but you don’t need it when you have an MA plan.

 

If you’re not sure what type of coverage you’ll need, our team can help match you with the right Medicare plan.
