Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield is Offering $240 Annual ‘New to Medicare’ Discount on Medicare Supplement Plan F in Indiana

INDIANAPOLIS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Certain Indiana residents are now eligible to receive a $20 per month
discount for the first year they are enrolled in an Anthem Blue Cross
and Blue Shield Medicare Supplement Plan F for a total discount of $240
for the first year enrolled. The discount is available to those who are
65 or older, within six months of their Part B effective date and have a
coverage effective date starting Jan. 1, 2016, or later.

Medicare Supplement plans are sold by private companies to cover costs
Original Medicare doesn’t, such as copayments, coinsurance and
deductibles. They require participation in Medicare Parts A and B and a
separate premium.

“We’re pleased to offer this discount on Plan F, which is one of our
most popular Medicare Supplement plans,” said David McNichols, president
of Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s Medicare central region. “Like
all Medicare Supplement plans, it provides predictable costs and the
freedom to visit any Medicare-approved doctor or hospital with no
referrals or network restrictions.”

In addition to the first-year discount, members can also save each year
if they pay their annual premium up front, have another household member
on an Anthem Medicare Supplement plan or if they sign up to pay their
premiums electronically. Drug, dental, vision and other benefits are
available to accompany the plan for additional costs. Medicare
Supplement plans provide guaranteed coverage for life as long as the
member pays premiums on time and provides accurate information at the
time of application.
