Anthem Announces "New To Medicare" Plan F Discount

Anthem Blue Cross CA has announced the implementation of a "new to Medicare" discount on only Supplement Plan F.  The discount is $15 per month for the first year and is available to those who enroll in the supplement as "new to Medicare" on or after 3/1/15 effective dates.

The discount is available to those 65 and over who are new to Medicare and within six months of their Medicare Part B effective date.  

Blue Shield of CA continues to offer a similar discount however Blue Shield allows the discount on all Supplement Plans not just Plan F.  Another difference, Blue Shield's discount cannot be combined with certain other discounts (2 party household, etc.) whereas Anthem will allow the discount in combination with certain other discounts.  Both carriers also offer a further discount for those paying their premiums by EFT (check or savings deduction).  

For more information on the Anthem Blue Cross CA Medicare Supplement Plan F discount, please contact my office.

“Effective as of Dec. 31, 2017, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is repealed, and the provisions of law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act had not been enacted.”
