Medicare Supplement insurance with Anthem Blue Cross gives you great options in California. You can see any doctor who accepts Medicare without a referral, while getting the extra coverage you need. Want help staying healthy and active, too? You’ll have access to our hugely popular fitness program, SilverSneakers®, through our currently offered Medicare Supplement plans.
Medicare Supplement insurance, also called “Medigap,” is a type of plan you can add to Original Medicare to pay for things that Parts A and B don’t cover like your coinsurance, copays, or the Part A and Part B deductibles. Just be sure to enroll in Original Medicare before adding a Medicare Supplement plan.
At Anthem, we’ve been serving California for over 75 years. Come find which plan is right for you!

Add prescription drug coverage
When you sign up for Original Medicare and choose a Medicare Supplement plan to help cover your costs, you’ll want to add a separate Part D plan at the same time. Part D is Medicare’s Prescription Drug Coverage. Like Medicare Supplement, you can get Part D directly from us. We offer several prescription drug plans to meet everyone’s needs. So add one to your shopping cart or take a closer look at Medicare Part D plans in California.
