Blue Shield CA Medicare Plan Changes Coming

Blue Shield of California has announced some changes for Medicare beneficiaries in California. Medicare Supplement plans will have a plan premium rate change effective December 1, 2012. I will post the December California Medicare Supplement rates on my site 
(Medicare Supplements) in a few weeks. In the meantime I have the rates available for quoting via telephone or e-mail. In addition, 

Blue Shield CA will be adding two new Medicare Supplements to their portfolio. Additions will include High Deductible Plan F and Plan N. The current $20 per month "new to Medicare" discount will be reduced to $15 per month for those enrolling in Medicare Part B for the first time. As always, Blue Shield of California Medicare Supplement Plans include the Silver Sneakers health club membership at no additional cost. For more information about Blue Shield Medicare products, visit my web site.

“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.”

Kaiser Foundation Interactive Subsidy Map (TrumpCare vs. ObamaCare)

An interactive subsidy map provided by Kaiser Foundation allows you to see the impact of tax credit subsidy (2020) versus income-based subsidy (current).  Sorted by county in all 50 states.  Those above 400% federal poverty level would do much better, those below, depends on county and income.  Most below 200% would do much worse.  

Subsidies under ACA are based primarily on income.  Tax Credits would be based primarily on age.
