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).
