Blue Cross Blue Shield Medicare Supplement

Purchasing a Blue Cross Blue Shield Medicare supplement works a little differently than the other major insurance companies because BCBS is not actually a single company but a trade association of independent companies.

The Blue Cross Blue Shield System


Not to get too detailed but to help you get the basics of BCBS you should understand that there are 38 member companies, a federal employee program and an association that all make up this one group. The system works together to provide health insurance in every state in the union as well as Panama and Uruguay. This give the company great stability and an advertising edge over other companies because they pool their resources to give them the great effectiveness.

Blue Cross Blue Shield Medicare Supplement Plans


Since each company is independently owned it is hard to nail down exactly which of the Medigap plans is offered by each company. However, most of them offer all ten of the Medicare supplement plans made possible by the federal government. A Blue Cross Blue Shield Medicare supplement is required to follow the same rules that every private insurance company must follow for these highly regulated plans. Medigap plan F is by far the most popular but people choose different Medigap plans for various reasons. You can find out more about the different Medigap Plans HERE.
