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.

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.

Anthem supports parts of GOP health care bill

Anthem is the first health insurance company to weigh in on the GOP's American Health Care Act.  Anthem operates in 14 states including Anthem Blue Cross in California (Blue Shield of California is a separate insurance company).

The company warned two Republican House committee leaders Thursday that without "significant regulatory and statutory changes," it will begin to "surgically extract" itself next year from the 14 states where it participates on the individual market. 


Anthem specifically praised the creation of a $100 billion fund that states could use to subsidize the cost of caring for sick enrollees.highlighted the importance of continuing the Obamacare cost-sharing subsidies that reduce the deductibles and co-pays of lower-income enrollees.Anthem warned that if the cost sharing subsidies aren't funded and other reforms made, the market will "continue to deteriorate."
