Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia is Offering $240 Annual ‘New to Medicare’ Discount on Medicare Supplement Plan F

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Certain Georgia residents are now eligible to receive a $20 per month
discount for the first year they are enrolled in a Blue Cross and Blue
Shield of Georgia Medicare Supplement Plan F for a total savings of $240
for the year. 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 David McNichols, president
of Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia’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 a Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia 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.
