BCBS Medicare Advantage Plans
This insurance carrier understands the importance of Medicare, and they’ve gone to great lengths to ensure its continued success among beneficiaries. This is vital, as research suggests that the country’s senior citizen population of number of senior citizens will grow to 90 million by 2050, adding to the demand for healthcare services. In addition, over a 20-year period, a 65-year-old couple’s average total medical expenses will be $218,000, in addition to what Medicare already covers. As such, in April 2015, the carrier announced the launch of a private health insurance exchange, designed to assist Medicare-eligible retirees with the switch from group health benefits to individual Medicare Advantage coverage, including MA, Part D and Medigap plans.
