Blue Cross Blue Shield Rate Changes for Medicare Supplements

You have probably received a letter from Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina notifying you of your new Medicare supplement rate beginning June 1.  Here are a few things to look for when you receive this letter.

  • Your rate adjustment is your yearly change due to overall claims activity within your group, or inflation
  • If you are moving to a new age bracket your rate increase may be more than you have experienced in the past few years
  • The Blue-to-Blue process that allows you to move to different Blue Cross Medicare supplements without answering health questions will only be allowed between May 1 and May 31, starting immediately (This rule change may particularly affect those who choose to move from F to HDF or HDF to F)

As your health insurance agents, we are here to assist you in understanding these changes. We also represent several other insurance carriers and would be happy to provide you with options that will suit your financial and health needs.

Client Testimonials

Blue Cross Blue Shield New Rates for Medicare Supplements

  • "This is a family-owned business who cares about their potential clients. I was looking for help with health insurance and even though it turns out I don't need new health insurance at this time, I feel compelled to write a review because of how thorough Brendan was. He was very knowledgeable and easy-going. He didn't seem pushy at all and listened to everything I had to say. He made sure he was getting all the information correct. I would recommend this agency for any insurance needs." - Doug C.
  • "I sought help from Wooten Agency; Ed, along with Nancy, took the bull by the horns and sorted things out for us very quickly. Shortly thereafter Ginny took over. She is definitely most qualified as a plan selector for Medicare plans and issues related to Medicare. My appreciation to Crystal for the gracious way she always responds to telephone calls and makes every effort to ensure one is not forgotten. And Dana....the one contact we had was enough to find out you are similarly inclined to help a client." - Frank V.
  • "You [Aaron] have been so helpful, and you have all taken a personal interest in my individual and specific questions in order to make the best insurance choices for my needs. Thank you all! I look forward to working together in the future months and years." - Susan H.
