Medicare Supplement Plans
Coverage that coordinates with Medicare Parts A & B
If you are enrolled in both Medicare Parts A & B, our Medicare Supplement programs may be the right choice for you. These programs provide the coverage you can depend on, with benefits uniquely coordinated with Medicare Parts A & B. The Medicare Supplement plans described below are underwritten by Excellus Health Plan, Inc., which does business as Excellus BlueCross BlueShield.
Your choice of coverage
Excellus BlueCross BlueShield offers six Medicare Supplement programs. You choose the benefits design that best meets your needs.
- Supplement Plan A covers hospital coinsurance payments, which are not covered by Medicare Part A. It also helps pay for Medicare Part B expenses, such as doctors' office visits, surgery and hospital outpatient care by paying the 20% coinsurance of Medicare-eligible expenses after you meet the Medicare Part B deductible.
- Supplement Plan B gives you all the coverage of our Medicare Supplement Plan A and pays for your Medicare Part A deductible.
- Supplement Plan C gives you basic benefits of Plan A, as well as skilled nursing coinsurance, Medicare Part A deductible, Medicare Part B deductible and foreign travel emergency care. Hospital Services under this plan include: Hospitalization, skilled nursing facility care, blood and hospice care. Medical Services under this plan include: Medical expenses, blood and clinical laboratory services plus home health care and foreign travel emergency care.
- Supplement Plan F gives you all the coverage of our Medicare Supplement Plans A and B, plus additional coverage for skilled nursing coinsurance expenses, your Medicare Part B deductible, 100% of additional covered physician expenses, and coverage for emergency care when you travel outside the United States.
- Supplement Plan F + gives you all the coverage of our Medicare Supplement Plan F with significantly reduced premiums. You must meet a $2,200 deductible before coverage will apply.
- Supplement Plan N gives you all the coverage of our Medicare Supplement Plans A and B, plus additional coverage for skilled nursing coinsurance expenses. After your Medicare Part B deductible, services are covered in full except the lesser of twenty dollars ($20) or the Medicare Part B coinsurance or copayment for each covered health care provider office visit (including visits to medical specialists) and the lesser of fifty dollars ($50) of the Medicare Part B coinsurance or copayments for each covered emergency room visit. This plan offers coverage for emergency care when you travel outside the United States.
