At Senior 65 we are not the only ones who are trying to help best explain how Medicare, Medicare Supplemental Plans (Medigap) and Prescription Drugs work. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois have put together a pretty good overview video that gives you the straight scoop on your Medicare options.
They do a great job of first explaining the rules about traditional Medicare and then they get into how you may want to supplement your coverage with a Medigap plan. Yes, they want to sell you a medicare supplemental plan but the overall video is objective. They clearly point out that all Medicare Supplemental plans are identical no matter which insurance company is offering them. As the video points out, the only things that differentiate one Medigap provider from another is 1) reputation and 2) customer service.
So check it out. If you have Medicare questions, please contact us at the number above. If you want to get a quote for Blue Cross of Illinois Medigap plan or Medicare Supplement plans in any state, click on the button on the right column of the page.
