Medicare Supplement

Medicare Supplement insurance is optional coverage that helps to pay for expenses beyond what is covered by Medicare. There are several Medicare Supplement insurance plans labeled with letters, each with different benefits and premiums, so you can choose the plan that works best for your specific needs. With all Medicare Supplement insurance plans, you can visit any doctor or hospital that accepts Medicare.

All Medicare Supplement insurance plans help provide coverage for some of the costs that Medicare doesn't pay, including:

  • coinsurance
  • copayments
  • deductibles

Some Medicare Supplement insurance plans can provide you with additional protection. For instance, Plans F, High Deductible F, and N offer you coverage for:

  • skilled nursing facility care coinsurance
  • foreign travel emergency

Put your mind at ease knowing that with Medicare Supplement insurance, your health care coverage is with a financially stable and recognized leader serving Illinois for more than 75 years.

Take note: If you choose Medicare Supplement insurance, you will need a separate Blue Cross MedicareRx (PDP)SM prescription drug plan because Medicare Supplement insurance does not include prescription drug coverage.  Also, you cannot have a Medicare Supplement Supplement insurance plan and a Medicare Advantage plan at the same time.  If you have a Medicare Supplement insurance plan and decide to join a Medicare Advantage plan, you will have to drop your Medicare Supplement plan. 

Save Money with a Medicare Supplement Select3 Option.  Medicare Supplement Select is an option available on most Medicare Supplement plans. This option helps you save on premiums when you agree to use the hospitals in the Medicare Select Network for non-emergency elective admissions. You get the same solid benefits as our “standard” plans, but your premiums will cost less. This option is not available for Plan A and High Deductible Plan F.
