Information for

Our Medicare Supplement Plans (Medigap)

When you sign up for a Medicare Supplement plan with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, you’ll have access to some great extras. You could join our popular fitness program, SilverSneakers® starting January 1st. And in most states, you can also get special offers or enroll in programs to help keep you healthy and save you money.

Before you add Medicare Supplement insurance, also called “Medigap,” you’ll want to have Original Medicare.  Medicare Supplement plans let you add coverage 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. We’ll help you find the plan that works best for you!

  • You see a doctor who charges more than the Medicare-approved amount for care.
  • You’d like to buy separate dental and vision insurance once you’re enrolled.

No

  • You’re not enrolled in Original Medicare (Parts A and B).
  • You have coverage from an employer that pays all or some of the costs that Original Medicare doesn’t cover.

When should you enroll in a Medicare Supplement plan?

6 months starting the month you turn 65

The best time to add a Medicare Supplement (Medigap) plan is during your open enrollment period. This period lasts six months and begins the first day of the month in which you are 65 or older and enrolled in Medicare Part B. Sign up during this six-month period to lock in the coverage you need for the future.
