Are you new to Medicare?  Save $300 – Anthem offers a “New to Medicare” discount of $20 per month off your Medicare Supplement plan F and G premium.  As long as you are within 6 months of your Medicare Part B effective date, the discount is for the first 12 months of coverage and will end at the policy’s one year anniversary.

With a Medicare Supplement policy from Anthem you’re free to see any doctor, specialist or hospital across the U.S. who accepts Medicare.  No referrals or networks to fuss with.

Your plan F pays the deductibles, percentages and coinsurance that Original Medicare doesn’t cover.  And enjoy the security of knowing your benefits won’t change, even if your health needs do.

With more than 70 years of experience, you are free to enjoy the reliability, reputation and service that only Anthem Blue Cross can offer in California.

Go with the best, choose a Medicare Supplement

  • Access to any doctor and hospital across the U.S. who accepts Medicare.
  • Plans typically do not change from year to year.  Medicare HMO plans on the other hand change benefits, Rx coverage and doctor networks each year.
  • Want a health plan that will cover deductibles and coinsurance not covered by Original Medicare.
  • No paperwork or claims to fuss with.

Keep your own doctors and hospitals, choose your own specialists and other health care providers.  As long as they are Medicare approved, you are allowed access to them.  Remember, no claims to fuss with – your doctor and Medicare Supplement plan take care of it for you.

  • California Birthday Rule – switch companies every year on your birthday, regardless of you health status:  (View the info here).

In California, if you are a current Medicare Supplement member (with any company) you are able to switch companies on the month of your birthday every year to a company of your choice – Guaranteed, and no health questions asked.

Regardless of your current health status you can switch to a company with the same Medicare Supplement plan or one with less benefits.  This is a great benefit to take advantage of so you aren’t stuck with the same company who’s premium becomes noncompetitive.  This Birthday rule is unique to California residents only.  Please call if you have any questions.
