Blue Shield now offers Medicare Supplement plan G along with the other very popular plans F and N.
After January 1, 2020, Plan G will be the most comprehensive medicare supplement available for new enrollments, since Plan F will no longer be available for new enrollment.
Plan G has a $183 annual deductible. After this deductible is satisfied, the plan pays 100% for the balance of the year for medicare approved services. In other words, you could have a heart transplant and you will only need to pay the $183 deductible.
Starting April 1, 2018 the New Plan G will be available for enrollment.
If you are currently with another company medicare supplement plan you may be able to switch to Blue Shield at anytime without being required to answer any health questions, and regardless of your current health status. This guaranteed transfer is available through the end of 2018.
Don’t forget the Rx coverage. Medicare Supplement policies do not include the medicare Part D Rx plan coverage. Most counties have at least 25 different plans to choose from, and it’s important to match up the best plan and company with your medication list. There is a massive difference between the different plans and you will want to compare all of the twenty five plans before you choose. If you would like help with the comparison, please let me know, I’ll be happy to run the comparison for you.

Coverage & Access
Why do people purchase medicare supplement policies? 2 reasons:
- Coverage second to none. Plan F provides 100% coverage and Plan G only has a small $183 deductible to satisfy.
- The second reason is you have “Access” to any doctor and hospital in the U.S. who accepts Medicare. Receive care from doctors outside of your county, state and even across the country.
The three most popular Blue Shield medicare supplement plans are; Plans F, G and N.
- Plan F provides 100% coverage
- Plan G has the $183 deductible then 100% after is has been paid.
- Plan N also has the $183 deductible and it includes a $20 office copay.
Silver Sneakers Fitness program is also included with all Blue Shield medicare supplement policies.
And don’t forget about the “New to Medicare Discount” of $25 per month for the first 12 months of your policy. If you are new to Medicare Part B, you will enjoy a reduced premium by $25 for 12 months. Not all plans allow the discount.
