If you have a Medicare Supplement plan through Blue Cross Blue Shield, you probably have received a letter notifying you of your new Medicare Supplement rates beginning June 1, 2019.
What to look for in this letter
- Your rate adjustment is the yearly change due to inflation and overall claims activity within your group or age bracket.
- You may experience higher rate changes when you move to another age bracket.
- If you are interested in switching to a different Blue Cross plan, you must make that change during the month of May for a June 1st start date.
- Remember that we also represent multiple carriers and can help you switch to a new plan if you decide to leave Blue Cross Blue Shield.
There may be some changes you can make during the month of May, so call your agent to discuss your options.
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 suite your financial and health needs. Please feel free to call with any questions.
