Blue Shield Combines California Medicare Supplement Discount Programs 2018

Blue Shield CA has made changes to the discount programs available to California Seniors going onto or already on Medicare Supplement coverage.

There are currently two discounts available.  

1.  New to Medicare premium discount of $25 per month for the first twelve months from original Part B effective date.  Another $3 available if paying by Easy$Pay.  This discount applies to plans A, C, D, F & G.  Does not apply to plans N nor HD F.

2.  Household Savings Program discount of 7% for two party enrollments.

In the past, the two party discount and New to Medicare discount could not be combined and the optimal setup was to separate spouses for at least the first year.  Now couples can enjoy both of the discounts at the same time.

The ability to combine these discounts makes for great premium savings.Call or email for a free quote and information.
