Medicare Supplement plans (Medigap) in Virginia

In Virginia, when you choose a Medicare Supplement insurance plan with Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield, you’re more than covered. With our currently offered plans, you’ll have access to the popular fitness program, SilverSneakers® starting January 1st.

Medicare Supplement insurance, also called “Medigap,” is a plan you 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. You’ll want to be enrolled in Original Medicare  before you add a Medicare Supplement plan.

At Anthem, we’ve been serving Virginians for over 75 years. Come find which plan is right for you!
