Medicare Supplement insurance plans (Medigap) in Ohio

In Ohio, we offer Medicare Supplement insurance (Medigap) plans including Medicare Select insurance plans, which save you money on monthly premiums. Medicare Supplement insurance plans help with costs that Original Medicare  doesn’t cover, like your coinsurance, copays, or the Part A and Part B deductibles. You can add these plans once you’ve enrolled in Original Medicare, and they let you visit any doctor who accepts Medicare. Medicare Select plans save you the most money when you stay in-network for non-emergency hospital care. But don’t worry! Anthem has a huge network that covers most hospitals in the state.

As an Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Ohio member with one of our currently offered plans, you’ll have access to the popular SilverSneakers® program starting January 1st and SpecialOffers, like discounts on vitamins and weight loss programs. Anthem has been serving Ohioans for over 70 years. Come find which plan works best for you!
