Although Medicare helps pay many of your healthcare bills, Medicare deductibles and copayments can quickly add up to thousands of dollars a year. Blue Shield Medicare Supplement plans are designed to cover a portion of the hospital, medical, and surgical services that are not covered by Medicare. Blue Shield offers you a choice of five Supplement plans: A, C, D,F, and K. All five plans pay most of the Medicare copayments, and Plans C, D, and F offer additional benefits, paying most of the Medicare deductibles.

Blue Shield Medicare Supplement benefits are subject to the deductible and copayment provisions of Plans A, C, D, F and K, which may be in addition to the deductible and copayments required by Medicare. Blue Shield benefits may also be subject to other limitations set forth in the Service Agreement.

If you enroll in a Blue Shield Medicare Supplement (Medigap) Plan F:

You pay nothing for Medicare-approved physician services even if your physician does not accept Medicare assignment, because Plan F includes coverage for 100% of excess charges. Plan F covers the difference, or the “excess charges”(if any) between the amount charged by your physician and the Medicare approved amount. In this example, the Medicare Supplement plan would pay $360 if the provider accepts assignment and $560 if the provider does not accept assignment. You pay $0 in either scenario because the plan pays both the 20% and any applicable excess charges. Free Blue Shield Medicare Supplement Quotes (800) 790-6409.

Your choice of physicians and hospitals

You can choose any licensed physician, provider, or medical facility that accepts Medicare whenever and wherever you need care for illness or injury within the United States. Providers are paid by Blue Shield only for the covered services they render to plan members. Providers receive no financial incentives or bonuses from Blue Shield.

Automatic claims procedures

Whenever you receive services within California, there’s rarely a need to file a claim. Your doctor will submit a claim to Medicare for the services you receive, and Medicare will, in turn, bill Blue Shield. Blue Shield will pay the benefits directly to you, the physician, or the hospital, depending on which party covered the cost of services when they were delivered. We will also send you an Explanation of Benefits form showing what we’ve paid and what, if anything, you owe. All claims must be received within one year after the month of the date of service.

Worldwide coverage

Blue Shield’s Plans C, D, and F go with you when you travel, even though Medicare benefits are available only when you are in the United States, its territories or possessions. When you are outside the United States,these Blue Shield plans pay 80% of billed charges for Medicare-covered expenses for medically necessary emergency care, as long as care begins during the first 60 days of the trip outside the United States. This benefit is subject to a $250 calendar-year deductible and a $50,000 lifetime maximum benefit.
