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

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Certain Colorado residents are now eligible to receive a $15 per month
discount for the first year they are enrolled in Anthem Blue Cross and
Blue Shield Medicare Supplement Plan F and $5 per month for their second
year in the plan for a total discount of $240 over a two-year period.
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 certain
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 Josh Martin, president of
Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s Medicare west 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 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 also
guarantee coverage for life as long as the member pays premiums on time
and provides accurate information at the time of application.

For more information about Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield’s Medicare
Supplement plans, including Plan F with the discount, and additional
benefits, call agent services at (888) 209-7839 or visit www.anthem.com/medicare.
