Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois Medicare Supplement Plans

Medicare Supplement Plans:

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois provides outstanding health benefits to Illinois residents including Medicare Supplement insurance plans for individuals over age 65 or those that are eligible for Medicare.

Why Do You Need Medicare Supplement Insurance?

Medicare is a federal program to help older Americans and some disabled Americans pay for the high cost of health care. However, Medicare was never intended to cover all of your health care costs. So even if you are covered by Medicare, you are still responsible for a large portion of your health care costs.

 

Determine Your Eligibility

  • Age 65 or Older
    As long as you are an Illinois resident age 65 or older and have Medicare Parts A and B, your acceptance is guaranteed.
  • Under Age 65
    If you are an Illinois resident, under age 65, have Medicare Parts A and B and apply for a Medicare supplement plan within the six (6) months following your enrollment for Medicare Part B, your acceptance is guaranteed.

What is guaranteed acceptance?

Medicare Supplement plans require medical underwriting to be issued. In other words, you have to answer some medical questions to determine whether you will be accepted or denied by the insurance company. Guaranteed acceptance bypass these medical questions and guarantee your coverage.

When can I sign up for a Medicare Supplement plan?

You can sign up for a Medicare Supplement plan at anytime as long as you have Part A and B issued. 

What Options does Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois Provide for Medicare Supplement Insurance?

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois offers two options for Medicare Supplement coverage — Standard and Med-Select plans. There are two key differences between them.

First, with Med-Select, to receive benefits for the Part A deductible, the client must use participating Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois Med-Select hospitals (except in cases of emergency admission). If the client does NOT use a Med-Select hospital, he or she must pay the Part A deductible.

The second difference is price. With Med-Select, the client’s premiums will be even lower than the standarad rates.

It's a pleasure to work with Tarek El Ali! He helped me successfully get medical coverage for my small business. He made the process very easy and he responds to all concerns promptly. Thank you, Tarek.

I worked with Tarek to find a suitable Medicare plan for my husband. We got it handled in one phone call. I was so impressed! Now I am becoming eligible for Medicare and worked with Tarek again. He was amazing! We found an affordable plan that meets all of my needs. I highly recommend him and will use his services again in the future.

I was previously working with someone through my franchise company to set up insurance for my employees. Low and behold after weeks of working with her she was not able to complete my process and was not very responsive when I asked her questions. She referred me to Tarek to finish up and he immediately contacted me and got my plan completed within the day! He was super nice and made sure my account was set up and ready to go before we missed our deadline. Highly recommended!

Healthcare.gov can be a little confusing so I called them up for help figuring everything out when I turned 26. Tarek is excellent at what he does. He had everything figured out for me in less than 15 minutes on the phone with him. I was so impressed that he will continue to be my go to guy for anything heath insurance related. I can not recommend him enough.

This is our 2nd time working with Tarek to find the right health insurance policy for my small business. In both cases the knowledge of the changing insurance landscape in Illinois has helped us greatly.
