You have probably received a letter from Blue Cross Blue Shield of North Carolina notifying you of your new Medicare supplement rate beginning June 1. Here are a few things to look for when you receive this letter.
- Your rate adjustment is your yearly change due to overall claims activity within your group, or inflation
- If you are moving to a new age bracket your rate increase may be more than you have experienced in the past few years
- The Blue-to-Blue process that allows you to move to different Blue Cross Medicare supplements without answering health questions will only be allowed between May 1 and May 31, starting immediately (This rule change may particularly affect those who choose to move from F to HDF or HDF to F)
As your health insurance agents, we are here to assist you in understanding these changes. We also represent several other insurance carriers and would be happy to provide you with options that will suit your financial and health needs.
